I spent two nights here for work in early September 2012, and my overriding memory of the stay is having barely slept on either night - although this is a decent hotel with plenty of amenities and a stunning view of Toledo, if you get lucky with your room.
I was one of the unlucky ones. Half of the rooms - including mine, it transpired - face out on to the hotel car park. After such a beautiful ride up to the hotel (and there's no public transport anywhere up there, so grab a cab in town if you're otherwise on foot) it was a huge disappointment not to be facing the view, but they were full. Oh well.
Really, if you can, do try and get a room facing the view - it's every bit as stunning as it looks in pictures! Toledo's a beautiful old town as it is, and with the river and the gorge and the skyline, at sunset it will really take your breath away.
Anyway, that gripe aside, my room was comfortable, clean and spacious. Sadly, it was also terribly hot, the air con was awful, and the window latches didn't work properly. I was stuck in a sauna. Again, the hotel being full meant that I had to endure all this, without any sympathy from the (largely not particularly pleasant) staff whatsoever.
This was not in any way conducive to sleep, and nor were the parties and fireworks displays that were taking place over the hill on my side of the hotel. It turns out there's a number of nightclubs up there. Oh well.
After having not slept, the continental breakfast was decent enough, with lots of coffee to keep us weary car park-facers going. The pool was nice too, although it wasn't heated when we were there, which made it rather chilly.
Now, the good stuff. Did I mention the view? It's stunning. Really, truly jaw dropping. The evening catering was also decent. We ordered various mixed plates among the group, and everything was perfectly done, although not exactly plentiful, and a few of the more rotund members of our party went back to their rooms hungry. Oh well.
Ultimately, I slept about 3 hours each night I was here, all in, and that's a huge problem at a place like this. I was here for work, and I managed OK, but I imagine it would ruin the holiday entirely for a family or couple who were here to relax.
I'd still come back, though - in slightly cooler weather - for that view...
Ask for a room facing the view of Toledo!
