The hotel is situated close to most the industrial areas of the city and 15 - 20 mins from the airport. The area around the hotel is not the most charming, but there are some reasonable restaurants within walking distance (e.g., Mexican and Argentine steak house options are very close). The breakfast as mentioned by others is extensive and good... More

This hotel is very nicely appointed, spacious rooms and great restaurants. The daily morning buffet was HUGE with excellent choices of foods. The restaurant on the main floor was outstanding! Great staff, not terribly English speaking friendly, but I made do.

Not often you can find a business hotel with the comfort of a Grand Tourism Hotel. the Hotel Riu of Guadalajara City, in my perspective, in more of 15 years traveling to that City, has been consolidated as the best option, and also now is my favorite. The comfort of its hundreds of rooms distributed in the more of 40... More

The Good: my Spanish is just ok so it was very comforting that almost all the employees spoke English. I stayed in 3910, nice big room, floor to ceiling windows that gives you a great view of the city and sunset over the mountains. The bar prices were reasonable, it is within walking distance to many restaurants. They arranged a... More

Hotel Riu Plaza has the distinction of being the tallest building in central Guadalajara. It is a tall monument to how the area has changed and grown over the past 10 years. The hotel staff - of which there were plenty available - made for an easy check-in and were happy to explain all of the hotel's facilities, restaurants and... More

I just spent four days in this hotel. I had long working hours, but it was nice to come back every night, very well located, beautiful rooms and good service. I didn't really like the enormous lobby with excesive and not to my taste decorations.

I stayed from July 13 to July 23, 2014. I have asked for the 32nd floor as it should be quieter. My stay was really amazing until the very last night (July 22). I was trying to get to sleep at around 10:10 PM and the guests on the same floor were so loud (laughing and screaming). I called the... More

I'm here for a business trip. The hotel is fantastic, with huge rooms (and bathroom). Very clean and comfortable. For Europeans the price is really attractive. The inside restaurant offers few choices but good food at right price.
