Yes, I saw solid, good reviews before I booked the hotel, but the real reason for booking was that it is 42 stories in a city that seems to max out at around 12 stories. We drove into Guadalaraja, with a spotty map, but when we asked anyone (truly anyone) they knew the hotel and the streets to get there (my own version of contingency planning). We were as far away as Tonala and got very clear directions right to the hotel...amazing.
On top of that, the front desk service from Pedro was outstanding. The room wasn't quite ready so he brought us to the lounge and concierge to unwind for a short time before coming back to deliver our key.
The room was spacious with a king bed, a sitting area, plenty of room to walk around, a large bathroom and two floor to ceiling windows overlooking the city.
When I return to Guadalajara next year, I'll definitely be booking the Riu. Oh, and secured hotel parking...about $5 a day.
