The Madrid Edition | Luxury Urban Resort

The Madrid Edition | Luxury Urban Resort

March 10, 2023

The Madrid Edition is the city’s first luxury lifestyle urban resort. It embraces Ian Schrager’s vision and ethos for an understated elegance while showcasing the innovative and elevated experience, ethos and exceptional luxury service that the EDITION brand is known for with two restaurants, each helmed by a world-class, award-winning chef, three unique bar concepts, exciting nightlife and entertainment, a magnificent outdoor pool located on the rooftop with jawdropping views of Madrid’s cityscape, a wellness and spa facility, and a series of spectacular meeting and event spaces drenched in natural light. 

 

 

 

There are also 200 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites, including multiple connecting units – for groups of friends and families – as well as an exclusive selection of rooms with private terraces. This innovation and creativity, long associated with Ian Schrager, together with Marriott International’s reputation and operational expertise results in a distinct, original and unique offering that captures the essence of Madrid’s spirit, traditions and energy. 

 

 

 

“This is not just a hotel. It’s much more than merely a place to sleep. It is a true hub of popular culture, entertainment and social interaction that is a microcosm of the best of Madrid and that perfectly captures the city’s spirit and essence,” says Schrager. “It’s about creating an original and new kind of gathering place for

both locals and visitors alike.” True to form, Schrager has worked his magic and pulled out all the stops with a meticulously crafted concept that brings a true sense of individuality to the hotel.

It features recognised culinary concepts by chef partners Enrique Olvera, whose restaurant Pujol is one of the top ten World’s 50 Best Restaurants and Diego Muñoz,

who led acclaimed restaurant Astrid Y Gaston in Lima to victory as the best Latin American restaurant in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Two world-class great chefs like that in the same hotel is absolutely unprecedented.

Lobby Bar

 

 

 

There is also a unique speciality cocktail bar, Lobby Bar, and a concept on the rooftop terrace that remains unrivalled in Spain. As with all EDITION hotels, the lobby is the beating heart of the hotel while the great personalised service is its soul. Here, under an undulating ceiling, the Lobby Bar is a dynamic and sociable space offering a new kind of gathering place for the city’s most discerning residents and visitors, dressed in a mix of custom-made bespoke furnishings – such as the u-shaped sofa with dramatically back-lit shelves – and custom made, bespoke pieces by well-known designers arranged in intimate seating groups. This includes Jean-Michel Frank sofas and armchairs, recycled bronze stools from Maison Intègre, rope-covered chairs by Christian Astuguevieille, and a shapely pool table, which designer Emmanuel Levet Stenne sculpted from a single slab of white Bianco Neve matt marble. Behind the hand-crafted scalloped copper bar is a backlit caged bottle display and, as ever, there is a strong emphasis on warm, indirect lighting, which has been thoughtfully considered to give the room a warmth, softness and approachability while illuminating key pieces under direct spotlight.

 

Jerónimo Restaurant

 

 

Located in The Madrid EDITION, Ian Schrager’s latest luxury urban resort in the bustling Plaza de las Descalzas and accessed through a baroque portal, Jerónimo offers cuisine inspired in the authenticity and generosity of Mexican gastronomy and the excellent quality of local products. True to EDITION’s dedication to outstanding culinary offerings, the restaurant is helmed by famed Mexican chef Enrique Olvera and his exceptional team, also responsible for the talent behind a collection of restaurants that includes Pujol in Mexico City, recognised as no. 5 in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. The restaurant itself seats 150 and is a multilayered space with distinct areas that seamlessly blend in with each other to create a totally holistic experience and encourages convivial dining in an elevated atmosphere. This leads down to the lounge area which is anchored by a long green marble bar designed for cocktail hour amongst locals and guests alike.
