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 arched space with a stained glass ceiling three floors above you. Truely stunning. 19th century furniture adorns the hotel which gives the property its charm and character. Only stayed one night, but wished I could have stayed longer.

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 as well as dining outside on the front portal facing the plaza and cathedral.

this is very nice hotel located right beside the city's cathedral. it has a very nice breakfast and is closeto everything. because it's in the city's center you will be hearing music till 2:00 am during the weekends, but i still think this is a very nice option...

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. Stayed here 4 prior times over 10+ years, & have witnessed the continued & unabated deterioration of the guest rooms. The rates listed at the check-in desk remain $200++ (USD), though we got a promotional rate of $130 (USD), & even that rate was double what the rooms should actually warrant. The wooden floors are so creaky that you can easily hear guests walking on them as you pass outside the doors, since they have never received any type of stablization. If you stay, be sure to get rooms on the 2nd floor, to avoid hearing every single step taken by guests above your room 24/7.Have visited every State in Mexico over 40+ years, & Morelia numerous times, & have had better rooms in hostals that charge $35. It is sad that the ownership of this hotel has simply chosen to ignore the "one time" crown jewel of Morelia hotels. Be sure to visit the public spaces however, & be impressed with the architectural magnificence of this property. This hotel sits next door to the theater which is under renovation, & on the opposite side of the theater there is a new hotel competitor, in an equally grand colonial building -- The Gran Hotel.The Hotel Los Juaninos, on the other side of The Cathedral is another good choic, if you want colonial ambience. It is on the upper floors of a colonial building, & on first look seems to be a very modern property, until you realize the hotel incorporated the old colonial structure.Both Los Juaninos & The Gran, have rates matching those of The Virrey. There are many less expensive, & very welcoming options in downtown Morelia, should you desire. The entire Staff at Virrey are professional, without exception, & many speak English. The lobby restrooms were recently renovated & upgraded in great style, so I hope this will begin to move through the shabby & rundown guest rooms. Great linens, in keeping with a great property --- but that is the only postive for these rooms. Bathroom fixtures are so terribly worn that they look dirty eventhough they are spotless. A sloppy paint job over the top of worn, chipped & cracked caulking only adds to the rundown appearance.

Room Tip: INSIST on top floor rooms. If you want quiet, take interior rooms, though they will be much darker. You will get LOTS of noise from 2 LOUD bars directly across the street from rooms facing the street, & clearly hear the music until 4:00AM on the nights they are open.
