The hotel Barceló Emperatriz is the result of an ambitious co-creation project, with more than 1,500 contributions sent by guests and important personalities, one of which has been selected as the winning idea: an art gallery with permanent and temporary exhibitions, creating a meeting point for art lovers.
The aim of this co-creation idea was to redesign all the processes that come together when a person spends a night at a particular hotel. From the moment they start to investigate the destination and its hotels, until they enter the hotel, the services they demand when they stay there and even after their experience.
A hotel worthy of its new guests who are well-travelled and require attention to detail. This is especially important for the Barceló Emperatriz, a hotel as visionary at detecting new travel trends as the icon from whom it takes its name: Eugenia de Montijo.
How did the project start?
When the chain notified Sara Ramis, Marketing Director for Barceló Hotels & Resorts that the hotel selected in Madrid would be the Emperatriz, she decided to create a professional women and leaders club so that they could contribute ideas to this old hotel's refurbishment project.
The goal of the 21st-century Empresses' Club is to create a special, unique hotel with distinctive experiences, some of which provided by guests themselves. That is the key to a co-creation project.
Said and done. Two intense days of work to imagine what the ideal hotel would be like with women in very different professional fields, of different nationalities and different interests but with one thing in common: a love of and need for travel.
The fitness studio at the hotel is situated on the top floor with Technogym state-of-the-art equipment as well as everything you need to enjoy exercising:
· Elliptical machine
· Multi-purpose fitness machine
· Abdominals bench
· Set of dumbbells
The mecca of museums, good shopping and luxury restaurants in Madrid is found in the Salamanca neighbourhood.
Art and culture always find their home in Madrid among its wonderful museums and shows. Madrid lives long in the memory due to the extraordinary atmosphere existing in streets and squares, due to the authenticity that its inhabitants ooze and due to the unique culinary offerings of its restaurants and bars.
One of the most exclusive neighbourhoods of the city - a mecca for good shopping and luxury restaurants - is the famous Salamanca neighbourhood, that goes down a treat with travellers and locals. It’s essential to take a walk along the famous streets of the Golden Mile, amongst which the Serrano or Ortega and Gasset commercial streets stand out, where the most luxurious brands are located or enjoy the beautiful architecture, with some of the most emblematic buildings of the beginning of the 19th century.
As well as being one of the most sought-after areas to live in, the traditional Salamanca neighbourhood is very comfortable to travel through, with streets such as Goya or Velázquez which are worth stopping at, as well as having the WiZink Center, a concert venue that takes in all types of international artists and is the home of Real Madrid Basketball and Students Club.
The Salamanca neighbourhood has a high level of museums, allowing you choose from the offerings of the National Archaeological Museum, the Lázaro Galdiano Museum, Casa de America, Juan March Foundation, National Library Museum, the National Mint and the Manuel Benedito Foundation.
