If you’re passed through the Plaza Santa Ana over the past couple of years you will have noticed that the huge Reina Victoria Hotel has been undergoing refurbishment. Well, last week saw the lavish re-opening of this historic hotel by the Sol Meliá group – some 1000 people were invited. Here are some of the hotel’s features, from its latest press release:
ME Madrid Reina Victoria represents the new daring, bold hotel concept of experience-based personality hotels which is characterized by passion for service, design, international fusion cuisine and world music.
Now here’s the bit I like:
A state-of-the-art home theatre entertainment centre featuring a 32-inch interactive plasma television and CD/DVD, surround sound speakers, WiFi Internet access, an extensive in room library of CD’s and DVD’s as well as iPod adaptors and connectivity docking stations
The hotel also features:
ME Madrid’s MIDNIGHT ROSE, the glamorous ground-floor restaurant and lounge. With its luxurious finishes and modern, eclectic furniture, MIDNIGHT ROSE will appeal to everyone, whether for impromptu gatherings or late night rendezvous.
This too sounds like it could be fun, and probably worth price:
Whisked up from the ground floor in a private elevator, hotel guests and the public alike can experience THE PENTHOUSE terrace bar where the people are bound to be as dynamic as the unobstructed city panorama over the famous Plaza Santa Ana. Outside guests are called to recline on decadent cushion filled beds, delicately enclosed by floaty fabrics while indoors, guests can sink into the comfortable lounge or immerse themselves in the exclusive VIP Bar.
Incidentally, Rande Gerber who operates ME Madrid’s Midnight Rose and The Penthouse, is the husband of Cindy Crawford. Something tells me that this could be the place to spot celebrities in the future!
