We stayed in the spa wing which was 30 seconds walk under a covered walkway to the main hotel. The room was very large, clean, nicely designed with lovely views across the vineyard and snow capped mountains. Bathroom was really big and very clean too. The main hotel was stunning in its architecture and the staff were very helpful. The...

Our group of wine lovers were on a 10-day wine tasting trip in Spain´s Ribera del Duero and Rioja areas and we were fortunate to stay a couple of days at this magnificent property. The hotel's design by renowned architect Frank Ghery (he also designed the amazing Guggenheim museum in Bilbao) is stunning, very modern and despite its audacious design,...

I have wanted to stay at this property for a few years and it was on my bucket list. While it is very interesting, I didn't like that you had to go outside to get anywhere. We stayed in tthe spa wing and that was just the design of the building. Our suite was large and the main building rooms...

There are many positive things to say about Hotel Marques. The Geary design will not let you down. It is inspiring and awesome to see. The surrounding vineyards and the views of the church in Eleciego give the presence of this designed hotel an awesome feeling. The staff are incredible. Front desk professionals also serve as concierges, and are knowledgeable,...

We went on the English speaking tour, excellent well informed guide. The original winery was commissioned from a master of wine from Bordeaux, so French in style above ground, but makes the tour all on the one ground floor level. Fairly basic but plenty of information. A very minor hesitation on a higher grade, at the end of the tour...

Situated in the heart of the beautiful vineyards, the hotel is a stunning building. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, and the bedroom was perfect and very comfortable. Parking is easy, and the wine tour was fascinating. It was a very quiet time of year, so the main restaurant was closed and the bistro a bit lacking in atmosphere....

Very luxurious bedding. Big room. The spa was enjoyable, and I used it every day we were there, even if the jacuzzi could not get up to temperature. The place felt stiff, perhaps understaffed, and Frank Gehry's open spaces don't work as well as a hotel interior. The winery is nice, but, perhaps not as exciting of a destination as...

Dear Travelwithmycanon, Thank you very much for being our guest and for taking the time to post a review on TripAdvisor. I am very sorry to hear that the temperature of the Jacuzzi was not like you desired it. In regards to the interior design, which was, as you absolutely correctly mentioned was also selected by Frank Gehry, please note...

Absolutely one of the finest hotels I have ever had the privilege to stay in. My wife and I were in a rental car on our way from Madrid to San Sebastian. We were using Starwoods points to stay in five cities in Spain. A friend who works for the Starwoods organization had recommended we stay here for at least...

This is one of my favorite hotel experiences! Driving up to this hotel s magical. We were fortunately there during harvest time f the grapes. The village was busy with tractors hauling trailers of grapes. The vineyard was a flurry of activity and a celebratory energy. We toured the vineyard and were up close and personal with the wine making...

We had the pleasure of staying one night in this amazing hotel recently. It's very difficult to impress my hubby who stays in hotels regularly for his job but he was blown away. We are both lovers of architecture, and in particular Frank Gehry's work and this hotel is stupendous. The colours, the textures, the curves and angles all look...
