History comes to life with vibrant modern energy at Four Seasons Hotel Madrid. In the very heart of the capital – within walking distance of all the key attractions – seven historical buildings have been transformed into one dynamic destination. With rooftop dining by Spanish celebrity chef Dani García, a four-level spa and a sun-splashed pool terrace, Four Seasons is bringing a new level of luxury and service to Madrid.
Home to Four Seasons Hotel Madrid, the innovative Centro Canalejas unites a collection of seven historical buildings, all impeccably restored and reimagined. The oldest part of the complex, originally El Palacio de la Equitativa, dates back to 1887. The dramatic rotunda, topped by a copper cupola, towers over the corner of Calle de Sevilla and Calle de Alcalá. Equally impressive is the neighbouring façade of the Banco Hispano Americano headquarters, begun in 1902 and today forming the main entrance to the luxury shops of Galería Canalejas.

Known for its historical monuments and the intact sixteenth-century walls, Lucca is a beautiful city located in the heart of Tuscany, at the foot of the Apuan Alps, and less than half an hour from the splendid Versilia coast. Nestled in the heart of this vibrant city, Grand Universe Lucca offers breathtaking views of Saint Martino’s Cathedral, all the churches, monuments, and towers.
Our hotel is a historical beacon blending different eras of history, from antiquity until today. From the existing building wall foundations dating back to Roman times to the ancient glassblower’s fountain remnants in the cellar and the beautiful classic yet contemporary design of the hotel, Grand Universe Lucca is a one-of-a-kind destination.
Here time seemingly stands still. An ancient forest, period French château, small hamlet of elegant cabins, lake surrounded by gorse and traditional stone houses all exist side-by-side, as if straight from a dream.

Unique and elegant, the legendary hotel is reborn, after several months of an ambitious undertaking nurtured by the creativity of Philippe Starck and La Réserve’s vision of excellence. La Réserve Eden au Lac Zurich is a majestic building standing proud, serene, solid and calm like the wonderful days that have passed since it first opened on the lakeshore 100 years ago. Times are changing and Philippe Starck has come along with a subtly artistic and rebellious touch.
He has in fact deconstructed Eden au Lac to better rebuild it for tomorrow, even closer to its true nature. From the 40 rooms and suites, to the restaurant and the bar, everything has been redesigned to offer guests a refined and timeless experience, true to La Réserve’s values of excellence, authenticity and simplicity.

A unique decor, down to the smallest detail, repurposed monumental lighting fixtures, South African custom-made sofas and headboards, gazebos from India turned into bathtubs, closets and night-stands from antique fairs from all over the world. The creative association of old and new art, objects and furnishings in a head-spinning and very personal mix is Pascale’s trademark (www.idliving-pl.com). Her keen sense of observation was sharpened during a lifetime of travel, countless visits to international art and trade shows, but also at the local antique markets. Her vision made of worldly elegance is multicultural and original down to the smallest detail. The unique result, coherent, deeply modern and stimulating at the same time is at the root of the exceptional atmosphere that permeates every room at Paragon 700.
