Marriott International announced the reflagging of the former AC Santo Mauro to the Santo Mauro, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Madrid.

Located in the center of the city, the 50-key property underwent a €7 million ($7.9 million) renovation and doubled its workforce before becoming part of the Luxury Collection.

Originally the home of the Duke of Santo Mauro, the 19th-century property neighbors the district of Chamberi and offers guests a large garden filled with rose bushes and horse chestnuts.  Rooms in the former stables are surrounded by lemon trees.

The hotel features a vegetable garden where the kitchen staff grows a variety of herbs used in the restaurant.

Guest rooms feature a neutral earth tone décor along with materials such as stone, marble, and wood and furnishings sport “midnight blue velvet” material and silk.

Dining options for guests include La Biblioteca and El Jardín, helmed by Chef Rafael Peña, who also owns a popular restaurant, Gresca, in Barcelona.  The menu will include offerings that the hotel says are inspired “by the meals of noble houses,” served in a dining room filled with books and antiques.

El Jardín features an outdoor terrace, and El Bar offers cocktails and snacks.

The renovated property also features several meeting rooms and an indoor pool.  A spa and fitness center will open next summer.
