For an exclusive stay in Madrid's most luxurious hotels, simply follow the trail of Swiss chocolate, Spanish sparkling wine, Egyptian cotton sheets, sumptuous rooms, views of grand boulevards and posh neighborhoods, treatment spas, and concierges who speak four languages.
Start with The Ritz. Sandwiched between Spain's Stock Exchange and the world-renowned Prado art museum, our top pick for luxury hotels in Madrid is actually a Spanish icon of its own. The 1908 hotel was built by the Spanish King, has seen its fair share of history (think Nazi spies and movie stars), and is still the ultimate in luxury. Also, when the weather's nice, dining on the garden terrace with a champagne cocktail in hand, or else an afternoon tea spread, is not to be missed.
Our second choice for a Madrid luxury stay faces the iconic Neptune Fountain - The Westin Palace Hotel. It provides classic European luxury (think marble floors, columns, detailed moldings, mahogany furniture, paintings) in a privileged Victorian-era building. To get the most from the experience, ask for a room with a view on the upper floors.
You can find our third pick for a luxury hotel in the beautiful historic building reigning over Santa Ana square, the ME by Meliá. Despite its historic exterior, the hotel inside is pure contemporary luxury and comfort. In the evening, don't forget to have a cocktail at the coveted rooftop bar and enjoy the dramatic views of Madrid.
