The Westin Valencia, Valencia $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Housed in a 1917 wool factory designed in the Modernista style (a Catalan take on Art Nouveau), the Westin's first Valencian outpost sits right near the Jardínes del Turia (a walk across the futuristic Puente de Calatrava brings you through the gardens to the city's historic center). We love the fabulously preserved exterior and verdant courtyard garden, and the Art Deco touches in the rooms, but the long carpeted corridors, soft background music, and bland shopping vitrines remind us it's just a chain. But those trademark Westin Heavenly Beds are indeed good, and there's also a spa, a gym, five meeting rooms, and a ballroom that holds 400—so it's no surprise that this is a popular choice for conferences and business travelers.
