ďAs Four Seasons continues its expansion into the worldís most desirable destinations, Madrid has long been on our wish list,Ē says Scott Woroch, Executive Vice President Worldwide Development for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. "With a proven track record of development success, operational excellence, and a strong capital base, the team of Grupo Villar Mir, Grupo OHL and Four Seasons is uniquely placed to create a spectacular property in Madrid. The confluence of strong partners with these grand buildings is without a doubt one of the finest opportunities for both Madrid and Four Seasons to attract international guests and provide them with an authentic experience."
Careful to preserve the historic buildings and conserve Spanish history, the new hotel will be comprised of past and present renovations with luxury elements typical of the Four Seasons brand. Within the multi-use complex, Four Seasons Hotel Madrid will feature 215 guestrooms as well as high-end residences.
If you're still unsure of your excitement for this development, maybe your own exclusive shopping center at the hotel will do it. Because, letís be serious, itís all about the shopping during a European excursion. Its location will also provide easy access to Puerta del Sol and is only blocks away from delicious dining destinations. Bring on the tapas and sangria!
While the Madrid property might be a first for Four Seasons, the use of historic buildings has long been a tradition. Their collection ranges from buildings from the 15th to the early 20th centuries in cities such as Florence, Budapest, Istanbul, Milan, Paris and St. Petersburg. Construction is projected to begin at the end of 2013 and details are still limited. Maybe if we click our heels three times we can speed up the process and arrive at 2017, otherwise, letís all enjoy a little siesta while we wait.
