Hospes Palacio de los Patos, Design Hotel - Granada, Spain [Master Thread]

Hotel website. Cat 5.

https://www.marriott.com/hotels/trav...design-hotels/

"A 19th-century palace and a dramatic modern building form the two parts of Hospes Palacio de los Patos. An urban retreat, the palace retains original details, such as mosaics, trompe l'oeil ceilings, and a grand marble staircase; while the alabaster-clad building next door is a vision in white. From cuisine to landscaping, authenticity and originality were the guiding principles for creating a sensory experience that brings the rich cultural history of Granada into the future.ARCHITECTURE & DESIGNHospes Palacio de los Patios combines dramatic classical design with equally stunning modern architecture. The palace building, with its striking façade and wrought-iron balcony, features carefully renovated original elements. These are complemented beautifully by the modern structure, which is connected to the older building via an underground walkway and ingeniously covered with water tanks. Highly contemporary design features are accompanied by sleek and sophisticated alabaster-white interiors."

When I did a 'find new hotels' search today, it showed up. I did a search on this forum using the property name & didn't see a property thread, so decided to start one so FTers could post their experiences if they stayed. Looks like a lovely property.

Cheers.

It was okay, but I won't stay there again. There was an autocrat collection for half the price, but you know me

The hotel consists of the historical palacio, which has 10 rooms if I counted correctly. The main rooms are in a new building (~44 rooms?) which is very different from the palacio itself. I saw rooms in both buildings, but decided on the quirkier palacio. All rooms in the palacio are very different. Think Venice "Danieli" style key which you leave at the front desk. The rooms in the palacio look very nice, the toiletries are of good quality but the furniture feels a bit tacky/cheap. spg recognition was okay (some leeway with late checkout, but no breakfast, for example). Some staff members were nicer than others. There's a sauna/steam room area, but I didn't visit.

Edited to add: points/nights still haven't posted.

Lastly - the surrounding area is rather uninspiring and the palacio stands out with its entourage of rather .. aesthetically challenged buildings. It's not far from the miradors per se, but closer to shopping streets. A couple of weeks ago it had already gotten rather cold and rainy in Granada, so bring appropriate clothing Enjoy!

Was upgraded to next category up to Palacio Deluxe.

As for points, nope. I got an email from the property that said they will post it manually but nothing was posted. So had to email my ambassador to post my stay.
