The new, landmark Hotel Marqués de Riscal, a member of the Luxury Collection, is nestled in the “City of Wine.” Designed by renowned architect Frank O. Gehry, our hotel is his second masterpiece in Spain, after Bilbao's Guggenheim Museum. Located in the heart of the Rioja wine region, we are ideal for a relaxed holiday or small meeting. 43 guest rooms, including 11 suites, feature a modern, comfortable atmosphere and unique design. Through its architecture, this place perfectly illustrate the different areas that converge here: more than 3 centuries of history are told by the vaulted caves which mix with the modern and avant-garde styles of Frank O. Gehry’s extravagant structure, all overlooking the Rioja vineyards and landscape. On the main building, 3000m² of sheets of multicolored corrugated titanium evoke the picture of a flamenco dancer’s dress in motion. The three colors, reddish pink (representing the color of wine), gold (representing the net that enclose the bottles), and silver (representing the bottle cap) are the colors of the Marqués de Riscal wine bottles.
