A grand 19th century duke’s palace turned hotel with an indoor pool in Madrid’s Chamberi neighborhood
Once the lavish private residence of Francophile Duke of Santo Mauro, the namesake Marriott Autograph Collection hotel is redolent of Old Madrid with a side of 19th-century Parisian glamour. But the 49 guestrooms are thoroughly modern, decorated in muted tones and mocha accents with leather upholstered headboards, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and parquet floors; some suites have cozy fireplaces. Renovated public areas include the Chinese and Red Lounges and a fitness center, sauna, Turkish bath and indoor mosaic-tiled swimming pool. La Biblioteca Restaurant, originally the palace’s library, serves traditional market Spanish food such as battered hake with mashed potatoes.
In the Area
For late night entertainment, head to one of the live music boîtes along Calle Echegaray or Calle Huertas for some jazz or flamenco to go with your gin-and-tonic. On Sundays and holidays the Rastro, Madrid's sprawling flea market, provides a perfect segue into a rioja-soaked lunch in trendy La Latina. More active types can finish off the weekend — or the workday — with a jog (or just a stroll and an ice cream) in Madrid’s green lung, Retiro Park, or by wandering through the Royal Botanical Garden of Madrid. Art lovers will be in seventh heaven at the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza museums.
