Must be 18+ yrs old to stay at the property due to the on-site casino. Hotel heck-in is at a specific spot in the casino.

I've stayed here within the past month. As others have said, it's a great location and very convenient to all the activities in Madrid. I was upgraded to the Circulo Suite which is very large. The breakfast was a continental breakfast with fruit, meat, cheese, and pastries. They also offered an egg dish. On my last visit to Madrid I stayed at Palacio del retiro and liked it as well. For what it's worth, the Palacio had a better breakfast but my upgrade at Circulo was better.

it is attached to a casino but I didn't see any impact from that other than reminders that this is an adults-only property.

Thanks for the update, booked at the Palace for now, will relook at the other Marriott properties.

Had a great stay here last week.

- very good breakfast with excellent pastries. Small selection but high quality
- upgraded to a junior suite which had a very nice jetted tub

Would definitely stay here again.

It is good to hear that they improved the breakfast experience. When I was there about two months ago the breakfast spread was not worth its price and the staff behaviour during the breakfast was not on the same level as the hotel (very slow service, do not speak english, ...).

My experience in July was similar to yours. The breakfast was definitely subpar for a high-end Spanish Hotel. The fruit selection was fairly Limited ... I think mixed fruit in a bowl. But, I agree the croissant was good!
