Marriott and Radisson brands are making their debuts in new regions. Here’s a look:
Marriott to bring JW Marriott brand to Spain
Marriott International has signed an agreement to introduce the JW Marriott brand to Madrid.
Located in the central Plaza de Canalejas, JW Marriott Madrid will be developed by Millenium Hotels Real Estate as part of their lease agreement with a wholly owned subsidiary of Belagua and is expected to open in 2022.
The hotel’s design will be led by local architects Arvo Arquitectura de Juan, with interiors by the Madrid team at Rockwell Group. Design plans are expected to offer a sense of balance and warmth, inspired by the principles of mindfulness, using natural elements, interesting textures and tactile spaces, according to Marriott. The restored property is expected to offer 139 guestrooms which will include two floors of suites, all with outdoor terraces. Plans for public spaces include a lobby bar, a distinctive restaurant and well-being spaces.
Marriott currently operates 93 properties in Spain.
