Hotel Occidental Miguel Ángel’s classic style is enhanced by the valuable works of art featured inside. It was opened in 1977 by Queen Sofía when she was still Princess of Spain. Its privileged location grants it access to Madrid’s financial district and the luxury boutiques in the Salamanca neighbourhood. This was one of the first hotels to provide exclusive services for special guests, and boasts a spa with hydrotherapy circuits including an indoor pool, jacuzzi, Finnish sauna, Turkish bath and essence shower.
Gastronomy also plays a major role in this hotel, as its restaurant, La Broche, is under the guidance of renowned Chef Sergi Arola and has been awarded two Michelin stars. Hotel Occidental Miguel Ángel has been the choice of many celebrities, amongst others, famous actors like Jeremy Irons and Ewan McGregor, and other celebrities such as Placido Domingo, Peter Gabriel and Cher. But there will always be a special place in the hotel’s memory for winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature Camilo José Cela, who used to stay at the hotel every week.
Former US president Bill Clinton’s visit is also a hotel favourite. He stayed at the hotel in 1997 during a 5-day visit to Spain with his family. The hotel was occupied in its entirety by the US presidential entourage and became the safest place in the world. In order for the Clinton family to feel comfortable, the hotel built a suite, specially adapted to suit their needs. One of the rooms was turned into a large walk-in wardrobe for the exclusive use of Hillary Clinton and her personal stylist. But that was not all, their entourage included a personal butler, who was assigned to the kitchen and who tasted everything that the Clinton family would eat.
