The lobby is ornate with a posh, upscale restaurant dominating the central atrium. Polished hardwoods, brass, and marble complete the upscale look of this space. Believe it or not, Pancho Villa is said to have once rode his horse into this lobby!
The rooms are modern and very comfortable with every convenience you expect from an upscale corporate hotel, from cable TV and minibars to air-conditioning and exercise rooms.
The hotel has a very nice, but casual Old West-style bar called the 1800 Bar--drinks are a bit expensive for my tastes, though!
I like the central downtown location of this hotel, a mere block from the Macroplaza or the shops along Morelos. I like stepping out of the hotel and being in the tranquil Hidalgo Plaza, where shoeshine men sit at their small stands, reading the morning paper as they wait for clients.
Overall, a top-notch hotel that's a good choice for travelers who like a bit of luxury in their accommodation.
