Built in 1910 at the behest of King Alfonso XIII and located next to the Prado Museum and steps away from Retiro Park, the Ritz has spent more than a century as the jewel in the crown of Madrid hotels. Cocktails in the garden or dinner or Sunday brunch on the terrace are rites of passage and should be a part of any visit to the city. Part of Mandarin Oriental since 2015, plans are afoot for a $64 million overhaul in 2017 to push it into the 21st century while still respecting its Belle Époque charm.
