The Westin Palace is VIP in Madrid. Rita Hayworth, Marlon Brando, Salvador Dalí, and Pablo Picasso stayed here, and you're likely to run into a few more celebrities during your stay.
This is indeed a palace in the centre of the city, as beautiful and authentic as you could dream. Chic and expensive, of course, it attracts international jet setters, who are also drawn to its Loewe jewellery boutique.
It has 467 rooms and suites, and several restaurants, including the landmark Rotonda, plus bars, a beauty salon, and a fitness room. An enormous Art Deco ocean liner of a hotel, it was commissioned by King Alfonso XIII in 1912, and is topped by a huge stained-glass dome.
