Hard Rock Hotels brand has expanded its international portfolio with the opening of a new property in Madrid, Spain.

Located at the Golden Triangle of Art in the Spanish capital, Hard Rock Hotel Madrid is suitable for both business and leisure travellers.

The hotel has 161 contemporary rooms and suites and more than 21,000ft2 of event space, as well as garden and rooftop venues and an outdoor swimming pool.

Additionally, the property boasts The Sound of Your Stay exclusive music programme, a 24-hour fitness centre Body Rock and Rock Om programme for in-room yoga classes on the TV.

Rock Shop allows guests to buy T-shirts, hats and other Hard Rock branded apparel at the hotel.

Hard Rock Hotel Madrid also offers bars and restaurant concepts such as the brand’s signature cuisine restaurant Sessions, RT60 rooftop bar and GMT+1 Lobby Bar.

The hotel also has a private chef’s table The Green Room, which will open this September.

Hard Rock Hotels senior vice-president Dale Hipsh said: “Hard Rock Hotels has always felt very in tune with the vibrancy and spirit of Spain. It is one of the reasons we introduced the brand to Europe with Hard Rock Ibiza in 2014, followed by our Tenerife hotel shortly after.

“As our first Spanish metropolitan hotel, Hard Rock Hotel Madrid brings a distinctly different personality to our beach resorts.

“Our guests will discover art, music, history, culinary excellence and culture at their fingertips – all brought together through Hard Rock’s curated and entertainment-infused hospitality.”

Furthermore, the hotel is situated close to attractions like Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in the city’s Atocha quarter, The Royal Botanical Gardens, the prestigious Prado National Museum, and the vibrant Lavapies and Embajadores neighbourhoods.

Hard Rock International has owned/licensed or managed hotels, casinos, Rock Shops, live performance venues and cafes in 68 countries.

In February, the brand shared plans for a new property in Tampa, Florida, US.
