The Madrid EDITION
What it is
An ultra-design-y 200 room hotel that checks all the creative boxes, with a rooftop pool, five sceney restaurants and a candelabra-lit spa.
What it isn't
Hands off. Expect topnotch service, including twice daily housekeeping, valet parking, 24-hour room service, and an in-the-know concierge team.
What we think
If you’re going to Madrid to ogle the art (this is the home of the Museo Nacional del Prado, after all), you can’t stay at a boring hotel. You just can’t. And that’s where the new Madrid EDITION comes in. Decor and hotel wizard Ian Schrager has made his guest rooms here unlike any others in town, thanks to glowing headboards in Baroque-inspired shapes, sculptural sitting areas, and truly sumptuous amenities, including custom Italian linens, rainforest showers in the marble-lined bathrooms, Le Labo toiletries, and Bang & Olufsen speakers. Book a Superior with Terrace King for—you guessed it—your own sunswept terrace, or the Madrid Penthouse Suite for your very own pool (flanked by daybeds and leafy plants, no less). And be sure to stop in at the spa for an indulgent treatment; guests rave over the collagen and luminosity-boosting Vitamin C facial.
You're here because
Did you even go to Spain if you didn’t Instagram it? And Ian Schrager is renowned for his obscenely photogenic hotels. It’s a match made in design heaven.
A global team brought the best of Mexican cuisine to the hotel’s restaurant Jeronimo, and the authenticity is palpable from the moment you step foot in the double height dining space. So you can’t help but go full-throttle on lunch. With dishes like lobster tostadas and shrimp and pineapple al pastor, who wouldn't?
Restaurants & Bars
Jerónimo - offers global cuisine heavily influenced by Mexico’s ancient culinary roots and is spearheaded by Enrique Olvera, Santiago Pérez and their exceptional team, the talent behind a collection of restaurants including Mexico City’s Pujol, Cosme in New York and Damian in Los Angeles.
Oroya - On roof on the 4th floor, Oroya, is helmed by Peruvian Chef Diego Muñoz. The relaxed, convivial greenhouse-like setting framed by a blackened steel cage clad with climbing plants and colored glass panels features a relaxed tapas menu with family-style sharing plates such as Ceviches, Papa Rellena and Ha-Kao on Parihuela Broth, that tell the story of Peru’s cultural history with influences from Spain, Africa, Italy, China and Japan. These can be washed down with Pisco-led cocktails like the famous Pisco Sour and Capitan, or a glass of wine from a menu curated by sommelier Julio Barluenga.
Punch Room - Under muted lighting, the intimate space unfolds in a rich tapestry of colours and textures, featuring dark oak wall panels, a basalt stone fireplace, grey pony hair Jean-Michel Frank armchairs, and handwoven wool rugs inspired by Catalan artist Joan Miró’s abstract forms and bold colours. These details are further highlighted by a brushed copper bar, and a standout bronze-polished mirror by Paris-based design studio Garnier & Linker, making it the perfect spot for a preprandial cocktail – like the signature Corsair Punch – or a quiet nightcap. Here too, is a menu of contemporary Asian bites like Grilled Octopus Wonton and Pimenton Sauce and Tuna Belly and Smoked Salmon Ikura Bites which is also available as part of the catering menu for banquets and events and can be ordered in the Lobby Bar or for room service.
Central Madrid, a mere 8 blocks from the Palacio Real de Madrid (with 3,418 gobsmackingly ornate rooms). And you’ll have a sweet neighbor in Chocolatería San Ginés—the churro and chocolate joint has been open since 1894, and serves 24 chocoholics 24 hours a day.
