This was my second time traveling to Guadalajara to see Dr Lazaro Cardenas for plastic surgery. I decided again to stay at Dickinson Guest House as I had such a good experience last time. This time I chose to stay in the larger guest room which cost a bit more but includes an extended breakfast. Jim has upgraded his Internet speed since I was last there and it is LIGHTNING FAST! Wow! That really makes a difference when you bring your laptop with you on vacation. The king sized bed in my room had a new memory foam mattress which was very comfortable. The house is cleaner than a hospital and very comfortable. The first three days following my surgery were a bit difficult and Jim was there to assist and help me every bit of the way. I honestly do not know if I could of done it without his help. If you are planning to travel to Guadalajara for a medical vacation as I have. Trust me, you will need help the first three days following surgery. And Jim is the best experienced person when it comes to this. Jim also took me to see some sites and we the newest Palacio de Hierro, a beautiful high class shopping center. I look forward to coming back to stay at Dickinson guest house very soon. Thanks Jim!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Dickinson Guest House , within walking distance to the Guadalajara Expo Center is a cost effective hotel-alternative to the many new luxury hotels that abound in this well maintained area of the city. We are available as a whole house rental, which is popular for those coming from the North during the winter months-or we rent rooms out to corporate or business travelers that need to be close to the Exposition center and this business hub of the city. This large home in the Chapalita neighborhood of the city is well know by locals. It is not to be confused with Lake Chapala, another destination of about an hours' drive away. We also have a shortcut to the very enjoyable towns of Tlaquepaque and Tonala, home of many artisan shops that are just beyond the historical district, a short ride away. Our business services for the traveler that needs fast internet service will be surprised to experience speeds that are actually superior to even the finest hotels in this pricey area of Guadalajara. The fully equipped kitchen will be a place for those who enjoy cooking for a group or for themselves. It is also has plenty of storage space for beverages and snack foods for those who prefer eating out at the many great restaurants that surround us. Come and feel the difference of the personal touches and amenities offered, while enjoying your privacy that is very much part of your wanting a private home. There are several spaces in this large property to enjoy with your friends or colleagues while still enjoying your private bedroom. Now that the business meetings and conventions are closeby, this home has become a popular alternative for 6-8 single guests or 4-5 couples on a stop-over visit to other Western cities in Mexico. If you are travelling as a group, why pay the high prices of separate hotel rooms when you can have a private room in a house and still be with colleagues or family? If you are looking for a week-end in the city-coming from Puerto Vallarta, bring some friends and take advantage of all the space to enjoy while at home! An excellent choice to stay in Mexico's 2nd city, for 10 years now-and counting! ... more less
