See bullfighters in the Neoclassical-style public rooms of the elegant Hotel Wellington. Ensconced in the stately Salamanca neighborhood just steps from historic El Retiro Park, this five-star member of the Preferred Hotel Group is a cherished overnight stop for Madrid visitors who have come to shop. The city’s toniest galleries and boutiques surround the landmark granite building and a steady parade of beautiful people frequently flows inside the hotel for its irresistible homemade cakes. People watching is best accomplished over cocktails at the Bar Ingles or at the outdoor pool.
