We spent eight nights in Madrid at our usual abode, The Hilton Barajas.  We've stayed at this property for so many years, it's "like coming home again."  It's great to see the same smiling faces of staff:  Tarek and Mica at the Front Desk; Oshraf in the main restaurant; and Tania in the Executive Lounge.  While there are other individuals we see each year, these are the people we interact with the most on each visit.  On this visit, our time varied between touring in Madrid and just relaxing at the hotel and enjoying its pool and fitness center.  It was incredibly hot in Madrid – varying from 35C to 40C (95F to 100F).  That is the main reason we took some days off from touring.  Also, we were a bit tired after our non-stop touring in Vienna.  On those days when we enjoyed “R & R” at The Hilton, there are no diaries and/or photographs.  Below are our diaries and  photographs from our days outside the hotel.  Click on the first folder to begin.
