This hotel's location is very convenient, on a main street near the cathedral and close to a bus stop where you can get a bus to the Alhambra. We entered the hotel to find a tasteful, contemporary look and feel, not unexpected for an upscale Marriott hotel. The surprise was when we were taken to our room in the charming cloister of a monastery that is part of the hotel. The room was a quiet and relaxing oasis in a bustling area of Granada. It was spacious and well appointed. We peeked into a few rooms in the modern section of the hotel and we would not have enjoyed staying there nearly as much as in the cloister. We found the front desk staff at this hotel to be particularly helpful. Breakfast was included in our arrangement with the hotel and it was both ample and enjoyable. As others have already noted, we were offered unlimited free access to our minibar, which was a very nice touch that we have not experienced elsewhere. Others have complained about having to pay for Internet use and about the high cost of parking. As for access to the Internet, we had no problem getting reception in our room and as a Marriott Rewards member we were not charged for its use. As for the fee for using the garage, we found this hotel's charge to be similar to that of the other hotels at which we stayed during our vacation in Spain.
