I stayed here for 4 days for a business trip. The hotel is located across the road from the Tampico airport, but noise was never an issue, even facing the airport. Free courtesy bus to and from the airport, waits for every incoming flight. If you're departing on the early morning Continental flight to Houston, get down to the lobby early (bus fills up fast)!
The hotel looks and feels like it was picked up in the US and plunked down in Tampico. Bed was comfortable, but the bed covering was lumpy (not a big deal). Bathroom was fine. Bottled water provided in the room. The thermostat did not seem to make that much of a difference in the room temperature. Fortunately, it was not cold enough that time of year to be a concern.
Free Internet (wired and wireless) in the rooms, but the connection was "muy lento" (very slow) either way. Good TV, plenty of English-speaking channels.
Gym was small but adequate (one ellipitcal, one treadmill, one weight machine, no free weights). Breakfast was free & good (hot and cold). My one complaint is that the juice machine has a water line into the back of it, meaning the juice is made with water. Although the hotel says its water is safe to drink, I never take a chance. It would be nice to have fresh juice or at least something out of a container.
Three restaurants within a 5-minute walk. Dolce Vita (Italian) is adjacent to the hotel (good food, nice atmosphere and bar). El Asador (steaks) is excellent. Also a taco place two doors down (didn't try, but looks fun). Room service available from Dolce Vita, IHOP, and Applebees. Nothing else nearby. Sam's Club is a 10-minute walk away (bring your card!), and a Walmart about a 15-minute walk away (but didn't go).
No safe in the rooms, but never felt that security was an issue. In summary, a very good choice of hotel, if all you need is a hotel. Same look, feel, and service as in the US; doesn't feel like Mexico (but I wish it did!).
