Rezidor announces the first Radisson SAS Hotel in Madrid

29 Jan 2008



The Rezidor Hotel Group arrives in Spain’s capital Madrid: At the end of 2009 the Radisson SAS Hotel, Madrid Prado will open its doors and add 54 stylish rooms to the system. Between 2007 and 2009 Rezidor will open 20,000 new rooms in total.

“Madrid is a milestone in our history in south-west Europe – a region where we see a promising potential”, underlines Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of The Rezidor Hotel Group. “Spain’s city number one represents a primary market and is strategically important for our further development in the country.” The new hotel is Rezidor’s second property in Spain – in 2006, the group opened the Radisson SAS El Marques Resort & Spa in Mijas, Málaga.

The Radisson SAS Hotel, Madrid Prado is the conversion of an existing building in an absolutely unique location: in front of the famous Prado Museum and next to the new cultural art centre “CaixaForum”. All 54 rooms (including 6 suites) as well as all public areas will be designed by Sandra Tarruella and Isabel Lopez – both are amongst Spain’s best Interior Designers and known for outstanding projects such as the sophisticated “Hotel Omm” in Barcelona. Further services of the new hotel will be a restaurant, a bar, meeting facilities and a spa/fitness centre.

All major attractions of Madrid are within walking distance from the hotel – such as the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum, the Reina Sofia Museum and the Gran Via, the main shopping and entertainment avenue.
