This hotel was originally planned to house such folks as presidents, royals, ambassadors, high clergymen, and the like. Nowadays, if you have the money, you can stay there with rooms starting around $1,100 per night. “Royal personages” have included Madonna, Jacqueline Kennedy, Bruce Springsteen, Brad Pitt and other pop culture stars. Do you think the old hotel feels itself a bit declassee because of the change in clientele? It was from the front entrance of this elegant hotel that we boarded our horse-drawn carriages for a “horse’s eye” view of the city.
Along the way, we rode past the Teatro de Lope de Vega de Seville and the immense Spanish Square.
