Toledo looks great - certainly a daytrip destination even if we don't stay there. Right now, it's showing sold out during the Cup weekend as well. Airbnb options that do exist are expensive.

My backup plan for now will be Guadalajara. There's a Category 1 AC hotel there that had award rooms available with normal 24-hour cancel rules. So for 45,000 Marriott points I have 3 rooms for 2 nights in what I am sure is a very barebones hotel as a fallback. Close enough to just book a van (or two taxis) to MAD on Sunday morning.

I'm guessing (based on experience with other sporting events) that availability in Madrid will ebb and flow as the knockout stage gets underway and some fanbases start canceling their trips. Who knows, when the day comes I may even peek at ticket prices and see what it takes to get 1 or 2 somewhere in the building.
