Hotel Hesperia, Madrid

Editor's Pick
57 Paseo de la Castellana
Tel: 34 91 210 8800's insider take:

The Hesperia's lobby is beautiful, done up in shades of warm orange with clean lattice work, lots of greenery, and wide-open spaces. You could sit for hours in the lobby lounge, just reading a book and soaking up the sunlight. Opt for a junior suite or a deluxe double rather than the entry-level rooms, which, though well-appointed and tastefully furnished, are surprisingly cramped. The Hesperia understands that extensive Scotch whiskey lists aren't just for grandfathers anymore, and its friendly, nonpompous bar offers the best selection in the city. Equally impressive is the basement restaurant, the famed Santceloni. This hotel is located in the quiet Salamanca neighborhood and you'll need to take a taxi or metro most places, but the metro stop is right across the street.
