Concierge.com's insider take:

Opened in 2009 in a 775-foot-high tower shaped like a rounded triangle, the Eurostars hotel neighbors Sir Norman Foster's Lego-like Torre Caja Madrid and is all about the views. The 474-room property, which takes up 30 floors of the soaring building, is the capital's highest hotel. Located in the north of the city (on what was formerly Real Madrid's training ground but is now becoming a new financial district), Eurostars is just a five-minute taxi ride down La Castellana to the city center. The walnut furniture, leather-padded walls, and cool light fixtures in the contemporary guest rooms save the accommodations here from the charmless fate of many bland business hotels. Bathrooms are decked out in black marble and slate, with separate hydromassage showers and tubs. The small spa on the 29th floor includes the pool with the best views in town, and the 30th floor is another spot where you can take in the vista, at breakfast or come evening, at the innovative Basque/Asian restaurant (dishes include red mullet with wakame seaweed and sesame in dashi sauce). A ten-floor convention center is under construction on the northwest side of the hotel (to be completed in 2013), which will be good for business but bad for the outlook of any room below the 12th floor on that side. Opt for a city view—our favorite, anyway—and it won't be a problem.—Guy Fiorita
