Ian Schrager’s EDITION Comes to Madrid

A heady mix of powerful architecture, refined culture, impressive art, a rich culinary history and an insatiable love of the good life has made  Madrid one of the most captivating and alluring cities in the world. The arrival of the EDITION brand further boosts the Spanish capital’s attraction with a refined offering that encapsulates the city’s beguiling individuality and essence. “Madrid, for us, is a truly world-class capital,” says Ian Schrager, the visionary pioneer of the boutique and lifestyle hotel concept, EDITION hotels, PUBLIC hotels and many other innovative and groundbreaking ideas. “It’s just a beautiful city that marches to its own beat and goes its own way.”

Following the launch of The Barcelona EDITION in 2018, The Madrid EDITION, opening in preview phase in March 2022, is the city’s first luxury lifestyle urban resort. It embraces 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 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.”

Location, Location, Location

The Madrid EDITION is located in the vibrant heart of the Spanish capital, a few steps from Kilometre Zero, which marks the geographical centre of the country.

The new hotel provides a new destination at the epicentre of one of the world’s hottest cities central to defining the global zeitgeist. More precisely, it is accessed via a stunning plaza reminiscent of Europe’s great plazas, squares and piazzas in the lively neighbourhood of Sol, home to convivial tapas bars, sidewalk cafés, and a stone’s throw from the Royal Theatre, Plaza Mayor and the Royal Palace. It is also bordered along its northern edge by Gran Vía, the Broadway of Madrid, which is lined by a broad sweep of glorious architecture.
