Thompson Hotels to enter Spain with Madrid opening
Thompson Madrid, which is scheduled to open its doors in mid-2022, will further strengthen Hyatt Hotels Corporation’s luxury and lifestyle portfolio in continental Europe.
Signifying Thompson Hotels’ entry to Spain, this milestone opening will give the brand a foothold in one of Europe’s biggest cities.
A new addition to Madrid’s hospitality scene
Hyatt Hotels Corporation has signed a deal with Exacorp One to open Spain’s first Thompson Hotels-branded scheme, the 175-key Thompson Madrid, which is expected to make its debut in mid-2022. Located in the centre of the city’s Golden Mile, this lifestyle hotel will appeal to both business and leisure travellers alike.
“We are honoured to work with Exacorp One to welcome the Thompson Hotels brand to Spain, a sought-after market of today’s leisure travellers,” said Peter Norman, senior vice president development EAME & SWA at Hyatt. “Thompson Madrid will become a remarkable property in the heart of the city, where culture is celebrated and everyone who walks through the doors feels more like a resident than a guest.
“These plans for Thompson Madrid come at a time of significant growth for the Thompson Hotels brand, largely fuelled by leisure travel demand, offering a luxurious, evocative collection of boutique hotels, synonymous with highly distinct services and experiences that cater to the high-end traveller.”
A reflection of its locale
This new property will reflect Thompson Hotels’ focus on fashion, art and entertainment by introducing travellers to Madrid’s culture through architecture, design and the overall guest experience.
Each of the hotel’s 175 guestrooms, including 23 suites, will be designed according to the brand’s modern luxury aesthetic, with balconies and terraces providing city views and touches of fashion-forward art. A spectacular two-storey penthouse with panoramic vistas is also being promised.
Thompson Madrid intends to attract guests and locals into its three dining and drinking outlets, which include a signature rooftop terrace with a bar and restaurant, and a speakeasy-style venue. Interestingly, the entire culinary offering will be managed by Grupo La Ancha.
Carlos Llansó, architect and spokesperson at Exacorp One, said: “Today, we celebrate a considerable milestone, the debut of Thompson Hotels in Spain. We are thrilled to work with Hyatt on Thompson Madrid, a stunning property that we are sure will become an iconic landmark within the beautiful city of Madrid. We look forward to welcoming guests to discover a new sense of luxury later in 2022.”
Thompson Madrid, which will also feature a fitness centre and event space, is to join Hyatt Centric Gran Via Madrid and Hyatt Regency Hesperia Madrid as the third Hyatt Hotels Corporation-branded hotel in the city.
