I would choose El Escorial because of the large amount of artwork in the palace complex.

Depends on the season. If I were there in May I'd go to Aranjuez because that's strawberry season there. I like all three though. Check out the links and see what interests you most.

Its really up to you, your tastes, and as well season as pointed above. All are easy to reach using public transport so this is not a deciding factor.
