The first Thompson Hotels property will arrive in Spain this year. The 175-key Thompson Madrid will be located in the centre of the new Golden Mile in Madrid, just steps away from the iconic streets and plazas of Gran Vía and Puerta del Sol, amongst the most visited and eclectic tourist hotspots in the city.

“We are honoured to work with Exacorp One S.L. to welcome the Thompson Hotels brand to Spain, a sought-after market of today’s leisure travellers. 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,” said Peter Norman, senior vice president development EAME & SWA at Hyatt. “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.”

The luxury lifestyle hotel, which will enter Madrid as the third Hyatt-branded hotel in the city, will feature a striking mid-century aesthetic. Its thoughtfully curated spaces will include a rooftop terrace and pool that have all been inspired by the soul of the city and its architecture.

“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,” said Carlos Llansó, architect and spokesperson at Exacorp One S.L. “We look forward to welcoming guests to discover a new sense of luxury later in 2022.”

The 175 sophisticated guestrooms include 22 exceptional suites – many with balconies or terraces and outstanding city views. The 222 square-metre Penthouse suite, will be the crown in the jewel.

Three food and beverage outlets will be on offer, with culinary offerings managed by Grupo La Ancha, the renowned restaurant group who have had a strong presence in Spain since the early 20th century and are the creators of beloved dining concepts such as Fismuler in Madrid.

Alongside a speak-easy style bar, the hotel will feature a signature rooftop terrace, offering drinks and dining with sweeping views overlooking the city. Styled as a hilltop residential inspired cantina and a destination day club, it will be the perfect urban oasis for guests to enjoy.

The hotel’s expansive outdoor pool will elevate it as a wellness experience, with the city’s natural scenery as the pool’s backdrop. In addition, the hotel will also shelter an open-air courtyard and state of the art fitness centre.

Thompson Madrid marks a significant moment for the luxury hotel brand. Other hotels under construction from Thompson Hotels include Texas properties in Austin and Houston, as well as Thompson Denver, and Thompson Buckhead.
