TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Westin Palace Madrid
This hotel is a superb 5 star that was booked by Uniworld Boutique Cruises. It is spacious with grand rooms and public areas. It was constructed in 1912, and still has many excellent features of that era. The dark laquered cabinetry and doors with brass fixtures and marble floors are especially striking. Buffet breakfasts are sumptuous and feature local products.

After breakfast we boarded our last bus for the 70 km south of Madrid tour of Toledo. The home of Don Quixote - Castile-La Mancha.
Approaching the hilltop city of Toledo you immediately recognize how ancient and historical the city touching the Tagus River was in the history of Spain. The people of Toledo who attend to the …
