Westin Palace - Madrid's finest

Pros: Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
Five star. Our suite was just delightful and the staff couldn't die more accommodating. Great rate for a 5 star hotel, a bargain actually.

This is a lovely, historic grand dame of a hotel

Pros: Quiet
Cons: over priced
The Westin Palace is a large, gracious, old historic luxury hotel, very conveniently located near the Prado Museum. The reception staff was efficient but not warm or friendly. The Concierge service was perfunctory at best. Adjacent to the lobby is a beautiful, large atrium,"La Rotonda," with a bar, tables for tea or drinks and cafe- a wonderful place to relax with a cocktail and people-watch. The rooms have been updated with comforable beds and beautiful marble bathrooms. We booked a deluxe room but it was basically a standard room with no view. No pool. Breakfast was not included and is very expensive unless it is included in your package. We ate meals at restaurants outside the hotel. The Westin is a good choice on arrival to recover from jet lag, a safe, comfortable, reliable place to sleep and good place from which to venture out to more affordable, personable and interesting venues.

Service and hotel not quite up to a 5 Star standard

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, expensive breakfast
I booked this trip last minute and figured the Westing was a safe bet for a great hotel. It is very well located but I don't believe its reasonable to pay 20 Euro per day per person for breakfast that equates to about $30 US. Nor do I believe we should be paying another $20 Euro or more per day for internet service. Its a nice hotel but come on with the outrageous extra fees. The Sunday Brunch was 73 Euros each for some food and opera. For those that the money is inconsequential I guess they wouldn't complain but I felt the services were overpriced and the staff wasn't up to par.

Good Choice

We are worldwide travelers and we have been to a lot of five-star hotels, and this hotel was well located, tastefully decorated, a good buffet breakfast was included in the price, and we felt like we got our money's worth. They required our two children to stay in a separate room; which connected and worked out just fine;. The only drawback was the street noise at night, even on the fifth floor...we were even on the street opposite the Paseo del Prado. The Thyssen and the Prado are just opposite the hotel. The Westin Heavenly Bed is awesome!

The best Hotel in Madrid

I was here for 4 days on a short business trip with my daughter. From the reception to the concierge, everything was perfect. The neighborhood is the best in the city. You are within walking distance to everything. We were treated like we were important. The buffet was fabulous and the setting couldn't be more beautiful. The beds are so comfortable, the bathrooms are spacious. I would never stay anywhere else in Madrid. (if you are a SPG they will typically upgrade your room)

This place can't get the BASICS right: - Internet access is sporadic; down one minute, up the next. - The shower is similarly sporadic; scalding hot to luke warm, no matter what setting you put it on. - One room service respondent wasn't familiar with the existence of items on the menu (like blueberry pancakes). It's thievery that they would even charge 1/5th of what they currently do for these rooms. Room service items are insanely overpriced; as in at least twice of what is normally exaggerated. Plus the hotel is extremely dated; as in nothing updated for decades (read carpet, furniture, TV set, lamps, telephone).

Pure elegance

Everything about this hotel (except price, of course) was perfect. the public areas are unbelievably beautiful, the rooms are spacious and well-appointed, housekeeping is attentive and the service is sublime.\n\nRegarding location, the Palace is in the most interesting part of town, across from the Prado and near the other major museums, the "downtown" part of Madrid is an easy walk away, the city's parks are an easy walk in the other direction, and the hotel borders on the old part of the city, which include the best restaurants, shops and clubs. \n\nDuring our stay the hotel hosted a visiting American NBA team who were playing one evening on their tour entitled NBA Europe. Despite the potential for disruption typically caused by the press, PR types, and sports groupies who are always present at such spectacles, the hotel staff was able to control the entourage and maintain a serene sense of calm the entire time.\n\nI would strongly recommend the Westin Palace to any business or tourist visitor to Madrid, and would definitely stay again.
