Five-Star Selenza Madrid Selects Utell Hotels & Resorts

The Hotel Selenza Madrid has upgraded international representation to Utell Hotels & Resorts to take advantage of the company's proven global hotel sales, marketing and distribution services. The recently opened Selenza Madrid broadens Utell's growing international portfolio of nearly 9,000 hotels worldwide with more than 200 in Spain.

Located in the most cosmopolitan and elegant area of the Spanish capital, the 44-room Selenza Madrid is surrounded by exclusive shops and is situated near the art triangle comprising the world-renowned Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofía museums. It features well equipped meeting rooms, a distinguished concierge service and the elite Ramon Freixa Madrid restaurant, which received its first Michelin star only six months after opening in 2009. Each room offers free Wi-Fi, MP3 connection, DVD players and flat-screen LCD televisions with satellite service.

As a member of Utell, Selenza Madrid will benefit from Utell's extensive business-generating relationships with the travel industry globally, especially the proven Utell preferred agreements with major TMCs (travel management companies), online distributors, corporations and consortia groups. Additionally, Selenza Madrid reaps the rewards of accessing a comprehensive range of powerful business intelligence solutions, award-winning Web services products, market-leading reservations and booking technology services, all powered by Pegasus Solutions and provided to Utell members.
