QDJ is in a decent area about 4 blocks from the heart of Tlaquepaque - close to great dining (for non-vegetarians) and good shopping and some interesting history. The hotel is small and clean.
Our room (#16) was spotless, but could use some serious updating; the lounge furniture was not comfortable, but the bed was great; the bathroom was small and outdated - and there is ample space to enlarge it and make it first rate! Hopefully, this will be included in planned "service and infrastructure upgrades".
The restaurant had limited choices for vegetarians, but the food was good. Bar has some interesting holdings on the shelves - take time to peruse before you order your same old, same old.
Outside lounge and pool area is nice, with comfortable lounges. Clientele is varied: wayfarers, families, business folk, destination stoppers all come here, but probably not puffed-up expense account guys. Maybe it's the friendly, helpful staff that makes this combination work. The staff is excellent - front desk, dining room, bar, rooms, kitchen and grounds.
Definitely a place I will keep on my return-to list.
