Located in the heart of the Spanish capital, Canopy by Hilton opens its doors to guests in Madrid
Canopy by Hilton, Hilton’s is now welcoming guests from the Middle East at the brand’s first hotel in Spain – Canopy by Hilton Madrid Castellana. The property, owned by Hotel Investment Partners (HIP), is proving popular with both business and leisure travellers.
The hotel is located in the financial district of the city, a few minutes away from some of Madrid’s most popular tourist attractions, including the famous Real Madrid Santiago Bernabéu football stadium, the tree-lined Paseo de la Castellana, and the Gran Via and Plaza Cibeles.
In recent years air routes from the Middle East to Spain have improved hugely and the country is appealing to both culture seekers and football fans from the region.
“This stylish hotel truly emanates from the iconic city of Madrid, offering travellers an authentically local experience. Our third opening in the Spanish capital in the last year and Spain’s first Canopy by Hilton, we’re excited to launch yet another enticing option here in Spain for travellers visiting from across the globe, including the more than 118 million members of our award-winning Hilton Honors guest loyalty programme,” said David Kelly, senior vice president, Continental Europe, Hilton. “This opening is a further statement of our continued commitment to the Spanish hospitality market, as well as our growing confidence in a strong recovery for the tourism sector in the months and years to come.”
It is one of a trio of European openings under the Canopy by Hilton brand this year, following the summer opening of Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadero, and the Canopy by Hilton London City.
The theme of ‘Red’ Madrid underpins an interior decoration project that embraces popular “Madrileño” culture and avant-garde design. The project was masterminded by the studio of interior designer Jaime Beriestain and takes inspiration from the city itself – as the cradle of cañí [traditional Madrid] culture – to produce a space by everyone and for everyone, in the words of Madrid’s unofficial hymn. The 314-room hotel, with 12 meeting rooms, has a distinct neighbourhood and city feel, creating a comfortable environment for business and leisure travellers alike.
“We wanted to create an airy, open space, without barriers so that people could meet, see and be seen. For me, Madrid symbolises the colour red; it is a place where passion reigns and different, connecting cultures converge. That is why it is so important to offer the city a space that reflects this philosophy, a place to connect and meet — that is the concept behind Canopy by Hilton Madrid Castellana,” said Interior Designer Jaime Beriestain.
Hi, Madrid! Spaces By, And For, Everyone
Following the comprehensive refurbishment of the building’s interior, the hotel was planned as a setting to be lived in and enjoyed. Airy, open spaces in the lobby greet visitors, creating an ambience conducive to conversation. The lobby is dominated by Canopy Central, a gastronomic meeting point where visitors can enjoy a speciality coffee or food prepared from healthy, local ingredients.
On the mezzanine, locals and visitors mingle at Planta Z, a spectacular terrace where you can enjoy fun street food-style dishes with live music. The menu is focused on delicious, fresh and healthy cuisine, designed to be shared and combined with the extensive cocktail menu. A new casual meeting place in the capital for residents and visitors to experience the unique ‘Madrid vibes’.
Hotel guests can enjoy the exclusive Pool Terrace with views of Madrid’s rooftops and skyline – a typically romantic Madrid scene. To complete this 100% local experience, the hotel welcomes all guests with violet sweets in their rooms, a souvenir that no visitor to Madrid should miss.
