Forbes Travel Guide, the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, announced on April 26 its 2022 Star Awards. Four Seasons Hotel Madrid earned a new Forbes Travel Guide Five Star award, its highest rating, and is showcased with other honorees on, sharing the Five-Star rating with only one other property in the city and a total of three in Spain.

“I feel tremendously proud of my team for this fantastic achievement, especially taking into consideration the circumstance of the opening and the short order within they were able to achieve this meaningful award,” says Adrian Messerli, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Madrid. “It underpins again, how our service and product is establishing itself as a leading hotel in the market and beyond. Quality that is synonymous to Four Seasons, helping to support our joint mission for Madrid to be globally recognized as a world-class European city destination. The people make the difference, testimony through the overwhelmingly positive feedback we are getting from the guests enjoying the well-appointed and forward-thinking product offering; redefining modern day luxury.”

Located at the heart of the Spanish capital and only steps away from some of the key local attractions, seven historical buildings have been transformed into one dynamic destination. Offering 200 spacious rooms and suites, rooftop dining by Spanish celebrity chef Dani García, a gastrobar serving craft cocktails, 1,700 square metres (18,800 square feet) of sunlit event spaces, a four-level urban Spa and Wellness Centre and a sun-splashed pool terrace, Four Seasons is bringing a new level of luxury and service to Madrid.

Furthermore, with the upcoming opening of Galeria Canalejas with the world’s most prestigious luxury brands, the Food Hall, and an extraordinary culinary journey with authentic Spanish, international and fusion cuisine, Four Seasons Hotel Madrid at Centro Canalejas Madrid will become a leading destination for luxury, wellbeing experiences, world class shopping and a heaven for foodies.

Forbes Travel Guide is the world-renowned authority in genuine Five Star service, and Four Seasons Hotel Madrid is the latest addition to its illustrious annual Star rating list.
