I stayed here for 2 weeks. The hotel is not high end but it wasn't substandard. Breakfast is included but it's always the same. After the first week we were over it. However if you are only staying a short while it's fine. The managers reception we skipped after the first time. There was so little food put out we felt bad taking any. Free soft drinks , juice and beer were fairly plentiful. There is free teas and coffee in the lobby and a shuttle to take you within 10K of the property. You can get to your destination but you may have to find your own way back. There is a McDonald's practically in the parking lot and a mall with everything you will need including movie theatre, food court , grocery, clothing, casino, money exchange, deli, drug store, bakery etc. We ate at Apple bee's or the food court when we went out mostly but I hear that there are very good restaurants in the immediate area. Some are across the very busy road. There is a huge Sears mall a short distance from this one. The shuttle will take you there but it cost 30$ to get back by Taxi (2 blocks) so you may want to do your best to get that driver back to pick you up. We tried to call the hotel but using a pay phone in Monterrey proved daunting so we gave up and took a taxi. As we were living there for 2 weeks we asked the maintenance man to bring us a fridge, also I needed tons of pillows as was there for Surgery. All of our requests were met in good time and with a smile. There are some English speaking managers at the front desk who proved to be invaluable to us as most do not speak our language. If you need something the drug store does not have, there is a very large drug store that delivers. Ask the front desk to negotiate this for you. About Monterrey, we were there Oct 29 to the middle of Nov 2012. Many places only accept Mexican currency. This is due to Mexico's efforts to stop the drug traffic. There is a money exchange place in the mall beside the hotel (2 min walk). They will give you up to 200$ daily in Mexican currency. Best to take Mexican money with you. Lastly we never tried the pool or saw anyone in the pool. It's kind of in the parking lot and although it's clean it does not feel private. Hope this helps. Next time we go I think I will try to upgrade to a suite with a kitchenette. Oh yes, this is not a tourist area. It is the business district. The mountains are lovely to look at but there is little to do there. Stay out of the Casino's. They have proved not to be safe for some :(
