Autograph Collection Hotels has debuted its latest property with the opening of Eugenia de Montijo, situated in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Toledo, Spain.
Housed in the former palace of the Empress Eugenia de Montijo, the hotel has 40 guestrooms and two luxurious suites: The Tiffany, offering city views, and The Empress, with views of the Montes de Toledo. Inside, guests will find chic finishing touches, such as metallic fittings and deluxe velvet furnishings.
In the reception bar and restaurant, there are coffered ceilings in tones of graphite, deep blue and white marble. The lobby has plenty of seating where travelers can enjoy cocktails and more. The hotel’s dining spaces include The Dressing, based on the Empress’ original dressing room where breakfast is served, and the Mr. Worth Atelier Restaurant, a modern reinvention of a Toledo tavern where guests can enjoy traditional Spanish cuisine made with local market ingredients. If guests would prefer to sample outside options in the comfort of the hotel, a local restaurant delivery service is available upon request.
Guests looking to be pampered can head to the hotel’s spa and wellness center, Eugenia’s Bath. The spa has a steam bath, sauna and jet-pool facilities, surrounded by original Roman architecture. Guests can also treat themselves to a range of health and beauty treatments.
Eugenia de Montijo is also equipped for intimate weddings and corporate conferences with two event spaces, offering a capacity up to 40 people.
Located “just a stone’s throw” from the iconic Cathedral and Jewish Quarter, the hotel provides great access to explore Toledo’s many top sites, including the Church of Santo Tomé, the Cristo de la Luz Mosque and the Alcázar Fortress.
