This hotel has recently opened in Guadalajara, may be that's why is yet not among the top-ten and its no disappointing at all. The location couldnt be better, right in the heart of Guadalajara where 2 main streets meet (Lopez Mateos and Lazaro Cadenas) which let you go basicly everywhere in no time. First look from the ouside is simply WOW, a 40 floor tall building with stunning architecture. Service unbeatable from the moment you arrive, staff helpful and kind in every way looking to satisfy your every need.Valet parking available and is 65 pesos per day, you can also park your car by yourself by the price of 55 pesos per day,but saving you from going to the basement its definitely worth the extra 10 pesos. Lobby is big and modernly decorated and perfumed with Lily's scent which makes you feel as in a beach resort. Check in was fast, less than 5 min. I stayed at a senior suite at floor 33rd, views couldnt get any better. When you get an executive room or a suite you can use the crown level lounge where you can have (as much as you want) beer, red wine, softdrinks, juices, milk, coffee, tea, snacks, fruit, internet station, meeting room and relax in a very comfortable room with nice couches from 8 am to 8 pm. you will also get the highest rooms. My suite was beautiful, huge and beautifully decorated in lights purple colours. one and a half bathroom, a dining room with minibar which offers courtesy beers, softdrinks, water, juices and tea. if you want it to be replenished it will cost you, only first one is included. Great living room, two 50 in flat tv's and the quietest location ever. Main bedroom is simply great and at first bed looks so comfortable but was fooled having the worst sleep quality ever, mattress was so deformed, watery, impossible to rest on it and gaining a terrible lower back pain the first night, neck pain the second and relieved the third better sleeping on the floor instead. Excepting the mattress the suite was stunning. Main bathroom is enormous, has 2 sinks, great rain shower, a bath tube separated from shower, a bide and toilet separated as well from the rest of the bathroom, you cant ask for more space. They offer Lavarino Cosso amenities. Pool and gym are functionally, i did not use the spa so cant say anything about it. There is a nice pool bar with great service and the lobby bar offers live music on friday and saturdays turning it into a club crowded with locals. I did not eat at any of the restaurants at the hotel though they look great, breakfast buffete is included on the rate from 6:30 to 10:30 after that time it will cost you, i missed it everyday. There is a fusion cousine restaurant called Chardonay, pricey for what they offer but cant say if it was worth it. I really recommend this place for location, spectacular views, excellent service, huge rooms and pretty helpful staff (though they couldnt do anything about the mattress). If you happen to get a mattress as mine, dont forget some advil pills. and sleep on the floor better. I would first check the mattress before considering staying here again.
