Marriott Opens Brand’s Largest European Hotel in Madrid

With hundreds of rooms and thoughtful amenities, Marriott’s new opening in Madrid heralds a new era for the Maryland-based chain.

Marriott Hotels has announced the opening of its largest property in Europe, the 869-room Madrid Marriott Auditorium Hotel & Conference Center.

Previously known as Hotel Auditorium Madrid, the property underwent extensive refurbishment to open under the Marriott banner in November 2015.

Madrid Marriott Auditorium Hotel & Conference Center is ideally situated for the city’s Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport (MAD). The refurbished property boasts a contemporary design that incorporates multiple public spaces, perfect for those who wish to meet and mingle for business or pleasure.

The renovated property also features 15,500 square meters of event space and an auditorium that can accommodate an audience of 2,000. Additionally, the chain’s Meetings Imagined online service will enable event coordinators to keep guests and their hosts in touch 24/7.

With outdoor and indoor pools, tennis courts, a solarium and sauna as well as a gym, this new Marriott location also boasts extensive fitness facilities and Wi-Fi access throughout the property.

Hungry guests can satisfy their appetites in any of three on-site restaurants, with the property’s Greatroom and Atrium Bar offering drinks and lighter meals throughout the day. Kalma features a Mediterranean menu while Champions Bar offers guests an American sports bar atmosphere.

Finally, guest rooms at this newly opened property feature Nespresso Coffee machines as well as good-sized desk areas.

The opening of this newly renovated property is part of an ongoing program of change at the chain. The company confirmed these changes in a statement, saying, “Marriott Hotels is on a transformational journey to enable its guests to Travel Brilliantly. Guests and travel enthusiasts can visit www.travelbrilliantly.com to experience the countless ways Marriott Hotels continues to meet the needs of today’s travelers.”

I live in Madrid and I just don't get it. I had heard from friends in the property business that Marriott had searched for quite some time for a Madrid location. They even bought all or part of Antonio Catalan's AC Hotels. But this property is in the middle of nowhere. Yes, near the airport but so are several other hotels including big chains like the Hilton. Barajas has NO airport hotel on the property (as almost every other major airport except JFK does) so all "airport hotels" are inconvenient to get to. Why anyone would stay at an airport hotel except to overnight before an early flight is beyond me. The city center is not far and not difficult to get to, but people come to Madrid for the culture, food and nightlife. Not to spend time at a hotel somewhere near the airport. Good luck, Marriott. I'm a Membership Rewards Gold (and some years Platinum) member, and I wish you well, but I hope you did not step in some goo with this one.
