A good hotel in the smarter "hotel zone" end of town, near the Hyatt, Holiday Inn and Fiesta Americana. It's a short walk to the classy Paseo de Montejo and about 20 minute walk into the old historic centre of Merida.
The is valet parking so arrival is easy and the staff at check in were efficient and friendly. The room we had overlooked the main street but there is double glazing and little noise. It was spacious and well equipped in a standard business hotel kind of way. The aircon was a bit noisy but fortunately we did not need it at night and for some reason the hot water in the shower disappeared for one evening of our stay. Otherwise it was comfortable enough.
There is a small bar in the lobby but it's not very atmospheric although one evening there was a guitarist there playing live music to an audience of one, which went up to three when we arrived.
Like many hotels in Mexico the restaurant really serves a brunch rather than just breakfast but there is a wide range of food available on the buffet from breakfast cereals right up to full Mexican monty. Eggs can be cooked freshly to order and there is plenty of fresh fruit. The coffee is of the rather insipid variety so often found in the US, but there is plenty of it.
The restaurant is open in the evenings but it is very brightly lit and lacks atmosphere so it's fine if you want a quick bite but it's not really a dinner place. However Merida has plenty of good restaurants that are just a short cab ride away.
Overall we were pleased with our choice for the few days we spent in Merida.
