I will definitely return to this hotel. The Pro's are the location, the helpful and friendly staff, and the price. The view from my window was of a wonderful city scape, with the welcoming noises of Mexico starting around 9 and continuing through about 11. Easily could cross one of the 3 bridges into the Romantic District for restaurants and shops, and access to the beach. After I made my reservations, they upgraded me to a room with a kitchenette and sent a car to the airport to pick me up since I was staying more than 5 nights. A nice touch. Also, I think I was there the tail end of busy season.
The downside were the mattresses - I had a horrible time on the one of two queen beds my first night. My entire body hurt and I was up half the night. So, the second night (and for the remainder of my visit) I slept in the second queen bed, and it was a bit better. I laid out all the pillows and ended up sleeping on top of those for a few nights. So, check the mattresses before accepting a room. It may be that other rooms have softer ones.
Otherwise, staff was so wonderful and helpful. They offer complementary coffee/tea and cookies in the morning, which I never partook. I will return here, but will check the mattresses before accepting the room.
