Madrid: Westin Palace

Westin Palace, Madrid.  Treat yourself royally.  Built by order of King Alfonso XIII in 1912, The Westin Palace, Madrid was recently restored to its original splendor. Situated near the Prado museum, historic monuments and some of the best tapas restaurants in town, It is listed in the Condé Nast Traveler “Gold List 2010” as one of the best hotels in Spain.

The magnificent building, highlighted by an enormous stained glass dome, has been a centre of spanish society for almost 100 years. The 467 guest rooms and suites are decorated and furnished with stunning marble, precious fabrics and updated with every modern convenience.

The Westin Palace is located in the cultural and financial heart of the city, situated in the very center of the “Art Triangle” between the Prado, Thyssen & Reina Sofia museums. Across the road from the Parliament and within walking distance from the Royal Palace and the Opera House, The Westin Palace enjoys a privileged and unique location, it was so pleasant to walk around the streets near the hotel.

My wife and I particularly loved the most elegant dining room and the champagne with breakfast.
