The "very good" is due to the location, which is great. However, much else about the hotel could use some improvement.
First, be prepared that it is very hard to get to the hotel if you're driving, and there is insufficient loading space to leave your car while you check in. You might get lost in old town trying to get back there to see if a spot has opened up. The hotel's renovations were nice, but seemed to be cheaply done in places. Specific things I would have expected were missing: there was no safe in the room, the closet was open, there was no alarm clock, the radio that was there didn't work. There were three small windows above the bed, and the shutters didn't close properly and one fell onto the bed when we tried to shut it (thankfully, we weren't in the bed at the time).
Don't expect the AC properties to be up to Marriott standards - they're well below. The pillows were not particularly good, neither was the mattress. Request a room off the smaller courtyard - if they have an event, the main courtyard stays loud well into the night, and can be heard through the walls.
Didn't eat any meals at the hotel - they don't offer free breakfast for platinum members, and it was much more expensive than what was available elsewhere.
