Since this was the first time my girlfriend (now fiancé) would meet, I wanted to ensure that I selected a really nice hotel for us to be able to spend our first night together in. The Hotel Grano de Oro did not disappoint. I booked the Romantic Suite which had a King Bed, Jetted Tub & a City View. The room is on the third floor, so be prepared for a decent climb up some stairs. We didn't check in to the hotel until the evening around 8 pm. With check out at 11 am the following morning, we didn't get to spend too much time in the room outside of sleeping. After we got checked in & got refreshed from our flights, we headed downstairs for a dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The prices are on the higher end, but the food & service were great. We took some dessert back with us to the room to have a little later as the restaurant was closing. The room definitely provided the great romantic ambience that I was hoping for. It was definitely a memorable experience & I would not hesitate to visit this hotel again in the future.

We really loved staying at this hotel. It has an old world charm and the staff is very attentive. The restaurant alone is worth it. They have good taste in their artwork as well. This is the perfect place to stay also if you are flying in late or early from the airport. It is about 16 minutes away. Very convenient, and we parked for free right out front. I will stay there for sure next time I am in town.
