Loving life at The Westin Palace Madrid

Loving life at The Westin Palace Madrid

So I decided last minute to add an extra night to our trip to Madrid and I am SO glad I did. Madrid is beautiful and grand and a great start or end to your trip to Spain. If you are crunched for time, you honestly could hit the highlights in two days. But because this was the end of our trip, I wanted to maximize Madrid sightseeing and make it as relaxing as possible. 3 days in Madrid was perfect.  We stayed at the Westin Palace Madrid and had a fantastic experience. Great location and awesome concierge (Thanks Ricardo!). I always spend a lot of time with the concierge wherever I go so I can usually tell pretty quickly if they know what they are talking about and this staff really did. Many hotel concierges recommend restaurants or excursions or places they’ve never been to….and just point you in the direction of where every other “tourist” goes. That irks me. Big time. This hotel has a perfect location about 3 minutes from El Prado and walkable to almost everything in the city. Ricardo recommended a local favorite and delicious restaurant close to hotel. He also helped me find a laundromat so I could wash Jack’s clothes.  3 weeks on the road with a baby you NEED a laundromat. The main lobby is exquisite and has many options for lounging and grabbing a drink. Jack made himself at home in the main lobby…

Because Spain’s 10pm dinner hour was not compatible with traveling with a baby, we maximized long Tapas – Sangria lunches and then after Jack went to bed, I spent some time in the Westin Palace’s lobby blogging and having a bite to eat and enjoying the live music (Spanish guitar) in the lobby.  Thank YOU! Really enjoyed my time in Madrid and the hotel was a huge part of it.
