Westin Palace Madrid

Why it made the list

There’s a reason the Palace has been in business for over a century. The hotel’s proximity to Madrid’s key attractions, paired with its rich historical significance (Salvador Dalí, Marlon Brando, Rita Hayworth, and Madonna have posted up here) and time-honored reputation, make it a great choice for travelers looking for comfort and dependability. The cherry on top is the decked-out, 24-hour gym, an uncommon perk.

Iberostar Las Letras Gran Vía

Why it made the list

Iberostar Las Letras’s prime location (on the Gran Vía thoroughfare) and affordable rates would be enough to sway most travelers, before you even consider the hotel’s state-of-the-art gym, excellent restaurant, secluded whirlpool baths, and rooftop bar.

DoubleTree by Hilton Madrid-Prado

Why it made the list

Opened in January 2017, the DoubleTree by Hilton Madrid-Prado is a sparkling, immaculately designed hotel located two blocks from the Prado Museum. With its arrival, the Westin Palace, Hotel Ritz, and other well-regarded neighborhood hotels are shaking in their boots—and rightfully so: This newcomer boasts 21st-century comforts that the Old Guard can’t hold a candle to. We love the international power outlets with built-in voltage converters, which make it easy to use our favorite American-made bathroom appliances (blow dryers, toothbrush chargers, straighteners, etc.).

Hotel NH Collection Paseo del Prado

Why it made the list

NH Collection Paseo del Prado is a sumptuous corporate property located squarely within the Golden Triangle of museums. Housed in a turn-of-the-century palace overlooking Plaza de Neptuno, the hotel preserves the building’s erstwhile grandeur with canopy beds, gold-framed mirrors, and wingback armchairs. Even the busiest execs can appreciate the hotel's “Lazy Sunday checkout” at 3 p.m. which makes the last day of the week feel less rushed.

Hotel NH Collection Madrid Eurobuilding

Why it made the list

In the heart of the financial district of Chamartín, the towering NH Collection Madrid Eurobuilding is a state-of-the-art luxury property with large, airy rooms, and an enormous pool and gym complex. Techy types should note that it houses one of Europe’s premier convention centers, known for its multimedia vault screen (the largest in Europe) capable of projecting 3D images.

Villa Magna

Why it made the list

Villa Magna is the city’s modern luxury hotel par excellence, frequented by celebrities, foreign financiers, and other high-society types. Rooms are understated in their elegance, all taupes and mood lighting, and suit-and-tie staff are ever-present yet unobtrusive. To impress a new client, sidle up to the indoor-outdoor Magnum Bar, a swanky (if slightly fussy) hotel bar, ideal for sipping ice-cold martinis and top-shelf scotches.
