Westin Palace

Pl. de las Cortés 7, Madrid, Madrid, 28014, Spain

Built in 1912, Madrid's most famous grand hotel is a Belle Époque creation of Alfonso XIII and has hosted the likes of Salvador Dalí, Marlon Brando, Rita Hayworth, and Madonna. Guest rooms are high-tech and generally impeccable, banquet halls and lobbies have been beautified, and the facade has been restored. The Art Nouveau stained-glass dome over the lounge remains exquisitely original, and guest-room windows are double-glazed against street noise. The hotel also houses the well-known Asia Gallery restaurant and a sushi bar, and a stylish lounge bar fashioned like an English club.
