Madrid’s Hotel Villa Magna Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Hotel Villa Magna, MadridIt was in May 1972 when the Villa Magna first opened its doors on the Paseo de la Castellana in Madrid’s upscale Salamanca district. Since that day, it’s been a meeting point for high society. (The luxury suites are the favorite Madrid address for visiting celebs, like Brad Pitt, who threw a birthday party in the Real Suite.) The hotel’s restaurants and bars also draw a fashionable crowd. When the weather’s nice, the outside terrace is the place to be. For our first-hand hotel review, check out this article.

This month the luxury hotel is celebrating its 40th birthday with a few special offerings. At the Restaurant Villa Magna, the 40th anniversary menu highlights the greatest hits from 1972-2012: the best dishes starting from the days of Maxim’s and Chef Le Divellec. Available from May 10-31, 2012 between 8:30 - 11 pm. What’s more, guests can take a spin around town in a vintage Rolls Royce from the 1970’s: a two-hour ride complete with a chauffeur. This “Back to the 1970’s” adventure is part of the “Villa Magna Experience” offered during the month of May, which also includes accommodations in a Deluxe room, gourmet breakfast, a special anniversary cocktail in the bar, and the 40th anniversary dinner menu-- priced from 560 euros, with a minimum two night stay required.

The Hotel Villa Magna is located at 22 Paseo de la Castellana, next to the chic shopping quarter of Ortega y Gasset. For more information, visit www.villamagna.es.
