Initially I was concerned about this hotel because I had made my booking when it was a Holiday Inn and then it changed ownership before I arrived. As it turned out I need not have worried, in fact I suspect the standards were higher than I would have expected from an H.I hotel. Little personal details like the cleaner knowing... More

My husband I stayed here for a few days in February. Staff were exceptionally helpful. The room was on the small side and the bed even smaller. Best reason to stay here is the view from the rooftop patio restaurant. We went every night!

I am very picky about hotels but this one was a winner. The service here was very good, with the hospitality starting via email before we even got there.

The location is wonderful. I love the Zocalo and this hotel is steps away. Lots of restaurant and public transportation nearby.

Stayed here over a 4 day weekend last month. I've always enjoyed the scene around the Zocalo, which was my main reason for choosing this hotel. I had a spotless and well-appointed suite with a comfortable King-sized bed and enormous bathroom (Roman tub included), and very reliable WiFi. The staff was very helpful and responsive. Enjoyed watching the daily flag... More

I didn't expect this of the Holiday Inn.... the room was very small and bathroom incredibly small, thankfully we are tiny people not too sure how the obese people would get on here.

This hotel was decent... not what I expected from a Holiday Inn (in a negative way). It was still clean and the rooftop restaurant is its claim to fame (DEFINITELY check it out) but the rooms were very small.
