I enjoyed the stay at the hotel as it served my needs for what I was sent out to do. I was however, disappointed in the workout room as the facility did not have any weightlifting equipment to meet my needs. Maybe a membership with an outside gym would help.

We chose this hotel when we traveled to Ciudad Victoria for a family emergency. It was a very quick trip, we just stayed one night and the main reason to choose this hotel over the variety of hotels that the city has was the indoor pool since we traveled with 2 girls (1 and 4 years old). We were disappointed... More

I am staing in the hotel longer than expcted, but this gives me the opportunity to see more aspects of the hotel and its services.

After a hard drive from Veracruz this was a welcome stop. The bed was wonderful, the towels were fat and fluffy, the shower was hot and had lots of pressure. We didn't have time for the pool but it looked great. They had a full breakfast in the morning. Secure underground parking included, all at a great price of $88.... More

“If you tresure the sunlight, ask for a room facing outside, in my opinion on the oposing side of the main entrance most to the left and top would be the best rooms.”
