“Very Classy & Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is definitely a great hotel for business purposes/travel. The staff is great and there are lovely amenities. The only down side to our stay was that it was a couple's trip and the only room they had available for us was a room with double beds, wish it would've been one King or at least two Queen size beds in our room.

The staff at the hotel is very friendly & helpful, the rooms are very spacious, and the breakfast buffet cannot be beat. I had a room on the 31st floor with gorgeous views. The location for me was out of the way for my work, but I don't think there is a better option. I wish there were more dining options in the hotel and I can't say I'd recommend the room service.

This is a wonderful place to stay in Guadalajara. Food, drinks, room service and housekeeping is fantastic. The rooms are large and exceptional clean! Great view from the hotel rooms out over the city. Would recommend to anyone in Guadalajara on business.

Nice new hotel in a great area in downtown, great shower, a couple of restaurants and breakfast included. Comfy bed, great service and a rain shower. Even a few English speaking TV channels and free wireless internet.

This is the perfect hotel for conventions or big groups, they are very efficient at the front desk, breakfast is good and very well assorted you can get almost everything. The Hotel is new and the rooms are on average of good size and very clean. The location is good but there are other hotels better located, its good for short stays but don't expect something special. If you are there during a convention the lobby might be transformed into a big disco...

A modern, clean facility, I was here for business and the hotel was wonderful. Large, open rooms with a clean, large bathoom facilities, the hotel met all my travel needs. It is located in a busy area, with cars coming and going, so there is a lot of activity at the front door. There are numerous stores and restaurants in the area, and I enjoyed walking the surrounding areas before dinner.

The inside of the hotel is modern, with several restaurants/bars as well as convention centers. We enjoyed a great dinner that was very reasonable priced, and the breakfast buffet was gigantic. The fresh fruit was delicious as were the other options. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel, and the staff was friendly and heolpful. Definitely stay again.

I go to Guadalajara twice a year and decided to give the RIU another visit after its original opening a couple of years ago. Their breakfast buffet is excellent - one of the best and a bit pricey for Guadalajara, but good. However, again I was dissapointed in the overal Hotel service and rooms. Although we had a lovely view - the attention to detail is very cheap, pool service is difficult to obtain unless you go directly to the bar for service. Spa services were nice - not great but nice. Steam room is available and also a nice aspect. The hotel is well located with good access and nearby rate exchange houses and stores. Reception was not as knowledable about things that are basic. Walls are very thin and everything is heard - load voices, fighting and if you like quiet ... youll need earplugs. Okay for business if you are out most of the day or maybe for families because of the pool if your expectancy is more on the location. The bar is very nice with live music. I would visit the bar and breakfast buffet - but won't stay there again.

Room Tip: On corner with no attaching doors or other neighbors. The higher the room - less concerns.
