Built at the behest of the king in 1912, the luxurious Palace was the place to stay for decades afterward. The sheen has never really worn off, thanks to its location just off the Paseo del Prado and to its grandeur, apparent in the marble-floored lobby and the rotunda room with its massive stained-glass cupola. Top hat–clad doormen stand dramatically at the front entrance to welcome guests. The 467 rooms and suites (junior, executive, and royal) provide luxury points for every palate, though rates can zoom up to $1,200 a night (or $7,000 for the top-floor royal suite). One annoyance: lower-priced rooms are levied a hefty hourly charge for Internet service, free in pricier rooms.

Room to Book:

Neoclassical executive suites (ending in "23" or "36" up to the sixth floor) have views of the Neptune fountain in the Plaza Cánovas del Castillo.

Insider Tip:

This is the best place in town for mid-afternoon tea service or Bloody Mary cocktails during Sunday brunch. For both dining experiences you’ll be seated beneath the lobby’s stained-glass cupola and serenaded by opera singers. Arrive ready for great people-watching.
