We found this recently renovated AC Mariott by accident after a late afternoon rental car delay in San Sebastián, where the Eurocar associate suggested Vitoria as an alternate stop. Easy access from a main road into town, hotel has underground parking adjacent (15€), although they're assigned a parking space, which for us meant two trips to the garage, always an adventure.
Hotel lobby AND room beautiful and euro-modern (bathroom especially), with streamlined design, new flat screen tv, reading lights, recharging outlets plentiful, and controls by the bed. Minibar reasonably priced. Breakfast buffet excellent value & terrific restaurant around the corner (Restaurant Mesa).
WHY ONLY 4 STAR RATING? Room rate very good value, however (1) Wi-fi cost 14€ ridiculous! Clearly primary market is conference (spacious conference & exercise facilities at -1 level), so especially annoying that wi-fi is free only in common areas and expensive in the room. Since room is 60€, this translates as 20% surcharge to use a service that's free even in 2 & 3-star hotels all over France and Spain. Just charge a little more for the room and don't nickel'n'dime guests. (2) The only ventilation in room was by opening door to a wire-screened patio. This could be something of a safety issue, since door didn't close properly & screening was insecure room to room or potentially from roof. We felt safe, but others might prefer a higher floor.
ps. Public art is stunning if you like more modern vibe.
