Spain: Marriott’s Autograph Collection has welcomed its third independent property in Madrid, with the opening of Hotel Círculo Gran Vía.

The neo-classical building is the former home of the Merchants and Industrialist's Circle and has been transformed into a boutique, adults-only hotel and casino following a multi-million euro renovation. Offering 71 rooms and suites, Hotel Círculo Gran Vía joins more than 110 other properties in the collection.

Hotel Círculo Gran Vía is located on the famous Gran Vía. Built in the 1920s, the building was a meeting place for intellectuals of the famous Bilis Club, a literary society "without rules, directive board or address." A photographic art exhibition entitled "Memories of Gran Via" composed of 175 historic pictures is displayed throughout the guest rooms and public areas offering a fascinating perspective on Madrid in decades past.

"We are delighted to bring new life to this iconic building in the heart of Madrid," said John Licence, VP premium and select brands Europe, Marriott International. "With its grand architecture and carefully curated design that nods to the building's rich history, Hotel Círculo Gran Vía, Autograph Collection evokes the spirit and heritage of this captivating city and embodies our Exactly Like Nothing Else brand philosophy perfectly."

Hotel Círculo Gran Vía, Autograph Collection is the brand's third independent hotel in Madrid, joining Hotel Palacio Del Retiro and Hotel Santo Mauro.
