We are usually Hilton fans but seeing that very few were on our route through Andalucia, we decided to give the AC Hotels by Marriot a try during our drive. This hotel was great from checkin to check out. Our gps found the hotel without a problem and we valet parked the car. Checkin was quick and friendly. We got a room on the 4th floor facing the Gran Via. Double windows muted any sounds from traffic although we did hear a demonstration on the street that afternoon through the window. They also open up which is nice. The room had some nice amenities, comfortable bed, robe and slippers. There plenty of electrical plugs for recharging our devices. We did get internet for free in the room. Not sure if that is normal or not. We are silver members through the Chase Visa card. Not sure if that helped. We missed the inclusive breakfast as a Holton Gold member so did not eat at the restaurant except for the free drink and tapas coupon provided at check in. This was a nice touch as we used this prior to venturing out in to the city. Plenty of eating options around the hotel. No ironing board, iron, coffee or room safe in the room. Missed those things as we usually use them at Hilton. Location is great for access to the city. Easy walk to the Cathedral. Short taxi ride to the mirador san lucas, about 5 euros. Also, we took a taxi to La Alhambra from town for about 5 euros. Checkout was pretty quick. Valet gave us directions to get out of the area as the Gran Via and other roads downtown are restricted to buses and taxis. Definately would recommend this hotel and would stay here again without question.
