Pretty sure this is the tallest building in Guadalajara , that's a good thing as we drove in from Puerto Vallarta with no GPS, beautiful contemporary building with contemporary suit style rooms, lounge has a nice buzz about it an there are some great local restaurant's within walking distance. Lots of historical sights to see in Gualdalajara and some amazing...

I stayed here 3 nights on business in January. I thought the room, bed, bathroom etc was very comfortable. The check-in was friendly and painless and the breakfast buffet was very extensive, try the "green juice". My 3 night stay cost less than $300 so I thought that was a ridiculously price. The location was a bit far for the...

I came to the hotel from the airport on Saturday the 7th of February early in the morning (0300) and was informed that the hotel was fully booked ( hard to believe since it is a huge hotel) however, the only room that was available was the penthouse. I was told that it would be a total of $1700 mexican...

I stay at the Riu when in Guadalajara on business. The property is up-to-date with modern decor and good business amenities - wifi and a suitable desk. The location is convenient (for a city of six million people) for business shuttle travel, and there are a number of good restaurants within walking distance. If you're tired and feel like staying...

I travel frequently to Guadalajara on business and have stayed at the Riu during my trips during the past year. Hotel is very clean and modern. Rooms are well laid out and appointed. Breakfast offers a huge buffet of American and Mexican food. Omelets available on request are are prepared to perfection. Hotel offers two bars...one by the pool area...

When visiting Guadalajara, we have stayed at the Westin, Riu, NH, Fiesta Americana Grand and Presidente Intercontinental, so our favorite from all is RIU. It's a really nice hotel with nice room views. The staff is friendly. If you decide to include a breakfast fee in your reservation, as a note, breakfast is served from 6:30a.m. - 10:30a.m. which we...

Great location in GDL the rooms are huge and the view can't be beat. Their morning breakfast is immense with many offerings of local breakfast cuisine. The staff is not as friendly as they should be, somewhat stuck up which is the only reason I did not give 5 stars.

We checked in at 11. 45 pm the day after Xmas and upon check in decided to upgrade for a further 600 pesos to floor 35 and above so we got a better view of the city and access to the lounge for snacks, light breakfast and drinks which was worth the 600 pesos paid, that was the best part.The...

US citizen currently working abroad in Guadalajara. Stayed for a weekend at the hotel with my girlfriend. Everything appeared to be fine until check out at which point there appeared to be an $80+ USD charge from drinks ordered at the hotel bar from the night before. Surprised, I assured the employee that this was a mistake. About a day...

They have a very friendly staff, free wifi, a free minibar, very nice rooms including a comfortable bed and nice bathrooms. Pretty convenient for the fair grounds as well. It's not in the old part of the city so if you are looking for that, I would suggest somewhere else but if you are traveling to Guadalajara on business, I...
