Also debuting: Spanish celebrity chef Dani Garcia’s newest restaurant concept, Dani, featuring a year-round outdoor terrace atop the Hotel
After eight years of anticipation, Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Madrid is now open.
“Four Seasons Hotel Madrid began with a visionary plan by our owner partner OHL to unite and breathe new life into a collection of historic buildings in the heart of Madrid. Together with recent partners Mohari Hospitality, the result is a modern luxury experience in a magnificently restored property - the perfect debut for Four Seasons in Spain,” notes Christian Clerc, President, Global Operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
José Antonio Fernández Gallar, OHL’s Second Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, comments, “OHL is proud to have such a prestigious partner as Four Seasons for our project. We are convinced that its presence will be key in the positioning of Centro Canalejas Madrid as the new icon of luxury in our country, and in the consolidation of Madrid as a reference destination for international shopping tourism, at the same level as large European capitals.”
Mark Scheinberg, Founder of Mohari Hospitality, which is half owner of the property with OHL since 2017, added, “We’re really proud to have partnered with Four Seasons and OHL to develop and open this flagship luxury destination in Madrid, and the first Four Seasons in Spain. Despite the challenging circumstances, we’re sure that Centro Canalejas, and its seven beautifully reconceptualised historic buildings, will swiftly become a new social centre for the City of Madrid and a second home for local and global visitors alike.”
Leading a team of 254 staff is Regional Vice President and General Manager Adrian Messerli, a Swiss born and educated Four Seasons veteran whose most recent assignment was in Shanghai.
“We are excited to welcome our first guests to the first Four Seasons in Spain,” says Messerli. “In addition to our dedication to providing guests with a memorable experience, our staff are all fully trained and implementing Lead With Care, Four Seasons enhanced global health and safety program. Grounded in healthcare expertise, the program provides the latest information and best practices that will help us keep our guests, residents and employees safe and well.”
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve globally, Lead With Care provides hotel teams with access to leading medical experts, technology and tools, instilling the same trust and confidence that Four Seasons is known for around the globe.

Introducing Dani by Dani Garcia
One of Spain’s most celebrated chefs and a champion of the country’s culinary heritage, Michelin-starred Dani Garcia introduces a new dining concept so close to his heart that it bears his name. Dani is at once a temple of gastronomic exploration and an easy, informal setting for memorable meals with friends, family and colleagues. Located atop the Hotel, the restaurant and bar offer panoramic views across the city and beyond to its surrounding hills, with both indoor and outdoor seating year round. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and extending to leisurely evenings over tasty tapas and Spain’s incredible wines, it’s the newest must-visit destination in a city known for its culinary leadership.
