Granada Hotel and Bistro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 27, 2013

For SLO I don't know that you could get any better..?

Very Hip, NYC vibe. Hotel is boutique and the size of rooms are reflective of that, but as long as you know that going in you should be impressed. The quality and care put into the rooms is apparent. Linens, mattress, and eclectic decor are spot on.

Staff was VERY helpful in ever aspect, from giving directions to the nearest gym (which they provided a free pass for), to providing bikes and a map to all the local wineries.

All and all a very enjoyable experience!

If you go to the Bistro definitley get the cheese plate.

This is really a hidden gem. Wonderful service, restful and beautifully appointed rooms. All the little details are thought of, and the furnishings are well thought out and nicely designed. We didn't have a chance to try the restaurant, but it looked lovely. They also have a nice outdoor patio for guests only.

We came to SLO for my husbands birthday weekend and are so thrilled we found the Granada. The staff were all fabulous and it is obvious they love where they work. Our room was small but perfect in every way. The decor is beautiful, warm woods and marble bath and shower, great bed and linens. The upstairs outdoor patio was a great place to sit and read or enjoy a glass of wine. We had dinner Friday night at the Bristo on the cozy patio. The corn soup was amazing as was my chicken and my husbands paella dinner. The Sunday brunch Granada Eggs Benedict was one of the best things we ever ate. Can't wait to tell our friends and return!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Granada Hotel along with our entire wedding party for our wedding weekend, and simply can't say enough about our entire stay and experience. The quality, attention to detail, and uniqueness of each of the rooms was second to none, and our group even enjoyed popping into all of the rooms to see the various details. Easily one of our favorite parts of the hotel was the upstairs outdoor patio. Our group spent quite a bit of time out there each morning having coffee, reading the paper, and planning the day. The Bistro downstairs has great food (we especially enjoyed the brunch) and an even better wine list. Finally, we can't say enough about the service the Granada provided, specifically the team at the front desk. They were extremely helpful from the second we arrived and took care of our every need. They were even able to assist us in quickly securing a limo bus for an impromptu wine tasting trip on a Saturday, an hour or so before we wanted to depart. Again, I can't say enough about our experience...we loved it!

This is one of my all time favorite hotels; I loved the interior design with great details and cozy atmosphere. The bistro has a wonderful terras, staff is very friendly, it was all just perfect. When I first booked on line, the hotel seemed fully booked but luckily they could accomodate us when I send an email inquiry.

We have stayed at the Granada twice now... And love it! What a wonderful place. The rooms are small but the decor is top notch and amenities outstanding throughout the entire hotel (fireplace, steam shower, Juliette balcony -Suite #1). Every little corner of this place exudes quality and creativity. You absolutely must have drinks/apps on the bistro patio downstairs at night - fabulous outdoor sculpture & fire pit.

Room Tip: Ask for Suite #1if available. Not a place recommended with children or for those who prefer chain ho...

My wife and I are Virtuoso Travel Advisors and she wanted to surprise me on my birthday. She found this little gem in an article in the Ventura Star. When we arrived, we were greeted at the door and escorted up to our suite (#1) which we highly recommend! This suite has all the charm and amenities you need including a little balcony out overlooking the small quaint street. It is very obvious that the owners have put a lot of work and great taste into this little establishment. Charm and period class is evident everywhere! The little restaurant (dinner only) is a great choice, but we ventured out and found Novo, a very charming restaurant a few blocks away offering a choice outside dining area overlooking a small creek. The staff at the Granada couldn't be nicer and more efficient! Overall, a great choice in SLO if you are looking for a different and excellent experience!

Room Tip: We recommend Suite #1 - The largest room in the hotel.
