Decided to overnight in Morelia while attending Morelia en Boca (Food and Wine Festival) and happened onto Hotel Virrey de Mendoza. It's in a great location, adjacent to the city center. It is within walking distance to all the attractions. Upon arrival you are made to feel special from all the employees. The lobby is spectacular. It's a grand open... More

I've stayed at this historic hotel before and would happily recommend it again to anyone wanting to be in central Morelia across the street from the Plaza and one block from the Cathedral. Beautiful lobby with stained-glass ceiling and large rooms with comfortable beds and good bathrooms. The restaurant is good and a delicious authentic Mexican breakfast buffet is offered... More

It's sad to criticize this property, since it is in an absolutely wonderful historic building & has spectacular public spaces. Unfortunately, I would not return as a hotel guest, & would liimit my visits to the bar & restaurant, in order to enjoy the hotel's unmatched colonial atmosphere.

Just returned from a warm, sunny and wonderful vacation to Morelia/Patzcuaro and Uruapan. In Morelia we had the great pleasure to stay at the Hotel Virrey de Mendosa.

Staying in this hotel is to experience the charms of Colonial Mexico. It is beautifully appointed with wonderful antique furniture, portraits from another era, and a strained glass atrium ceiling in the lobby to die for. The rooms are spacious and generously furnished. The American breakfast which you can add to the room is worth every penny, and the dining... More

I stayed here for several days with friends in January, 2006. We were not disappointed! It has the feeling of days gone by, with a beautiful lobby and friendly staff. It is centrally located which is quite important. Great restaurants within walking distance.

Disastrous from start to finish. First, they got our reservations wrong. Booked only half the rooms. After a long stand-off, they tried to make it up by upgrading one of the rooms to the master suite. Well, the suite wasn't ready. It took a team of very surly staff a long time to get it ready. Meantime, the streets had... More
