Autograph Collection, one of Marriott Internationals newest ventures, is now officially accepting reservations in Europe with the addition of four new hotels in Spain. The first four Autograph Collection hotels in Europe are the:

AC Santo Mauro, Madrid, Spain
AC Palacio del Retiro, Madrid, Spain
AC Palacio de Santa Paula, Granada, Spain
AC Baqueira Hotel & Spa, Baqueira, Spain

We are thrilled to formally introduce Autograph Collection in Europe with such a distinct and notable group of hotels that exemplifies a strong culture and brand identity, said Kip Vreeland, vice president of the Autograph Collection for Marriott International, Inc. Each hotel embodies Autograph Collections mission to deliver original, independent hotel experiences to travelers with unique interests. We believe that incorporating properties such as these will be an integral aspect of our European expansion strategy as we seek to double the size of our portfolio here by 2015.

The new Autograph Collection hotels include:

The AC Santo Mauro in Madrid, which occupies the premises of an elegant late nineteenth-century building, once the residence of the Duke de Santo Mauro.

Including 50 luxurious guestrooms, the stunning 50-room AC Palacio del Retiro is housed in a twentieth century building and preserves the original moldings, woodwork and stained-glass windows of the original noble residence.

The 75-room AC Palacio de Santa Paula is a true restoration masterpiece, located in the historic center of Granada and is housed in the premises of what used to be the Santa Paula Convent, a Moorish house and a Spanish noble house, all fused into one magnificent building within walking distance of La Alhambra.

The charming 102-room AC Baqueira Hotel & Spa will be the first ski resort in Marriott Internationals portfolio in Europe, located in Baqueira-Beret ski station looking over the impressive landscape of the Pyrenees.
