One of Spain’s most unique hotels, the Hotel Puerta América is made up of 12 floors; each having its own style and unique architecture. A total of 19 separate agencies came together to design Hotel Puerta America’s 12 floors so that a completely separate atmosphere is felt from one floor to the next. Everything about the hotel evokes the senses; from the bold colors and textures to the overall futuristic and daring architecture.
Everything from the rooms and lobbies to the blankets and the bathrobes are the work of distinguished architects and design studios that all worked on these separate floors to give them their own unique touch in every way. Among these architects and designers are Norman Foster, Jean Nouvel, Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield, Marc Newson, Arata Isozaki, Victorio & Lucchino, Ron Arad, and Javier Mariscal, to name a few.
This 5-Star hotel offers in all of the rooms, the finest of amenities during your stay such as wireless high speed internet access at an extra cost, light and window control panels, interactive LCD flat-screen televisions, and huge windows that offer a panoramic view of the beautiful city of Madrid. If you stay in one of the more pricier rooms you can take advantage of even more amenities such as complimentary Oriol Balaguer chocolates on arrival, complimentary soft drinks in your provided mini-bar, a complimentary pay-per-view movie for every day you stay, complimentary wireless high speed internet access, complimentary suit pressing service, a complimentary newspaper daily, and even special turn down services.
Prices can be as low as $141.40 USD per night for a deluxe room and can get as costly as $4151.10 per night for the Jean Nouvel Presidential Suite – which is amazing, if you can afford to stay in that kind of luxury.
No matter what room you choose – you are in for quite an experience. The Space Club Zaha Hadid has a very pure feeling about it; it is completely white from the top of the ceiling to the floors and the architecture is strange and curvy for a space-age type of atmosphere. There are rooms for the traveling, business woman known as the Elite for Chic Women. These rooms have extravagant amenities and toiletries designed specifically for today’s fashionable hard working women; Bvlgari and Biotherm toiletries, female fashion magazines, walk-in hydrotherapy massage shower, professional mirrors, extra clothes hangers, HPAM bathrobe and slippers, fresh flowers, access to the gym and pool, and much more.
Norman Foster’s Deluxe Rooms which are located on the 2nd floor, are decked out in different color leathers, oak floors, and black onyx which ties together design of the bathroom with the room itself for a very comforting, luxurious feeling. The Deluxe Isozaki Room on the 10th floor aims to create a peace and tranquility. It primarily uses the color black with touches of deep red, a bathroom and shower made of hinoki wood, Japanese-style screens made of oak and white gossamer fabric, and strategically placed fluorescent lighting that illuminates the unusual paint which covers the walls – all which promotes harmony throughout.
If you find yourself in Madrid and don’t necessarily want to be in the crazy hustle and bustle of the city, Hotel Puerta América is definitely the place to stay at even if you don’t get your favorite choice of room.
