Since it's connected via skywalk to the el CID casttila it is really like being in the same hotel except you get to go " home" to the quiet and quaint ambiance of the Granada. The rooms are not all the same. The first night we were in the kingside bed as requested and I found that those rooms have NOT been updated! Next day we moved to a 2 bed studio which was completely redone and beautiful.
The staff are great and very helpful. It is a safe and reassuring environment. We stayed 14 nights and would do it again. The difference in price is not a factor. It is cheaper but I like it because it is not a high rise.
