scottya, where did you end up staying in Madrid - or maybe you're here now. We look forward to hearing about not only that, but also your Barcelona and Granada experiences, lodgings, restaurants, opinions, etcetera. It's been too long since we've had first-person postings about these places here on the message board.
for Barcelona information, Transportation, Lodging, & much MUCH more!
