MAR­RIOTT AU­DI­TO­RIUM HO­TEL AND CON­FER­ENCE CEN­TRE

A short dis­tance from Madrid Bara­jas In­ter­na­tional air­port, the 869-room ho­tel is Mar­riott’s largest in Europe. Re­cently ren­o­vated, the prop­erty has a new façade and 15,500 sqm of event space, in­clud­ing an au­di­to­rium that can hold 2,000 peo­ple. Leisure fa­cil­i­ties in­clude in­door and out­door pools, ten­nis courts and a gym, plus an Amer­i­can-style sports bar and an à la carte restau­rant serv­ing Mediter­ranean cui­sine. mar­riott.com

ONLY YOU ATOCHA

Opened in March, the ho­tel is a five-minute walk from Atocha sta­tion, pro­vid­ing links to Barcelona, Seville and Va­len­cia. Decked out in stylish in­dus­trial fur­nish­ings and con­tem­po­rary art­work, it has 205 rooms and three meet­ing rooms, mea­sur­ing 17 sqm each, al­though they can be com­bined to cre­ate a larger space for 50 peo­ple theatre-style. An out­door court­yard is ideal for cock­tails, while the Sep­tima top-floor ter­race spans 70 sqm. on­lyy­ouho­tels.com

NH COL­LEC­TION SUECIA

For­merly the site of the his­toric Ho­tel Suecia, the NH Col­lec­tion Suecia was ren­o­vated last year to of­fer 123 rooms with so­phis­ti­cated, mod­ern de­sign and views across the cap­i­tal. The ho­tel has three mul­ti­func­tional spa­ces with au­dio-visual equip­ment and ca­pac­ity for up to 148 peo­ple, plus a fine-din­ing restau­rant, a cock­tail bar and a gym. A lobby bar and rooftop ter­race can also be used for pri­vate events. nh-ho­tels.com

POSADA DEL DRAGON

A five-minute walk from Plaza Mayor, this bou­tique ho­tel has 27 rooms with high ceil­ings, colour­ful, de­sign-led dé­cor and four restau­rants, in­clud­ing a charm­ing bistro with seat­ing in an out­door court­yard. Housed in one of the for­mer homes of the Mar­quis of Cuba, the 19th-cen­tury build­ing is also on the site of some un­der­ground ru­ins, which can be viewed through a glass view­ing plat­form on the ground floor. Great for small groups look­ing for lively din­ing op­tions. posadadel­dragon.com
