The Westin Palace has a long history. Opened in 1911 as a hotel after having served as the palace of the Dupe de Lerma, it is Madrid’s second luxury hotel. Its rival is the Hotel Ritz, which sits across it from the Plaza de Neptuno. After the Ritz banned performers and celebrities in the early 20th century, Westin Palace became the choice hotel for celebrities. Mata Hari lived here during WWI and it’s said that her ghost still occupies the corridors. Hemingway, Dali and Lorca frequented the cocktail bar. Perhaps this hotel is not as exclusive and snooty as the Ritz, but it is still extravagant.
