Hotel Marqués De Riscal By Frank O. Gehry, Rioja Alavesa, Álava, Spain

Hotel Marqués de Riscal, A Luxury Collection Hotel
In the heart of the Rioja Alavesa region in Spain opened its doors the 1st of September 2006 and celebrated its official Grand Opening Event in October 2006, with the special visit of the King of Spain, its Majesty Don Juan Carlos. Designed and built by Frank O. Gehry, one of the world’s most renowned architects and author of works of art like the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, The Hotel Marqués de Riscal, A Luxury Collection Hotel merges deep rooted wine-growing tradition with twenty-first century avant-garde design.
Nestled in the renowned Vinos de los Herederos del Marques de Riscal’s vineyard in the medieval village of Elciego, the hotel’s spectacular curves, titanium roof and asymmetry of walls provide an elegant contrast to the historic wine cellars designed in 1858 by the architect Ricardo Bellsola. The hotel’s 43 luxury rooms and suites, each unique and different in their shapes and offered views, are “thrown” in two wings connected by a spectacular suspended footbridge.
Gehry’s personal and exclusive project of interior design characterized by its forms, colors and materials, offers an authentic avant-garde vision. The leather and raw maple wood of the suites the dark marble of the bathrooms, and furniture by Gehry (such as the Cloud lamps) and by other famous architects like Alvar Aalto melt harmoniously with the most advanced technology. State-of-the art “Beovision” televisions by Bang & Olufsen, VOIP telephones and WIFI internet access in all areas of the hotel combine perfectly with avant-garde furniture, lamps and headboards, designed exclusively for the Marques de Riscal Hotel and the quality and comfort of The Luxury Collection beds and linens.
