The Westin is a great hotel in a superb Madrid location - within walking distance to the Prada, Thyssen, Plaza Major, the Royal Palace and great restaurants and shopping. You'll get the same Westin quality you get in the U.S. The heavenly bed, clean rooms, and polite staff. It does host a lot of weddings - I thought this was fun but I could see how others might be annoyed. I plan to stay at the Westin whenever I am in Madrid. Also, American friends - the Spanish enjoy lunch from 2 - 4 pm and dinner from 10 pm on. My suggestion is that you eat a good breakfast, a big lunch at 2 pm and buy a sandwich from a local shop for dinner. This will make it easier for you but if you want to enjoy Madrid then get on the local food schedule - it's tough but fun. Walking everywhere will help you avoid the extra weight from sleeping on a full stomach. Ladies definitely you'll want to shop for clothes and shoes - inexpensive but amazing quality. Drink the Cava - it's much better in Spain than in the U.S.
