I have stayed in the Virrey de Mendoza, Morelia 4 times prior to this visit and have always been satisfied. This time I reserved a room with two double beds as I was sharing the room with friends. The room that they gave us was an interior room, which is common in Mexico, and arrived to find that neither the ceiling fan nor the air conditioner were working. I was shown two different rooms and neither room had decent ventilation and in both cases did not have an air conditioner. As I arrived late I accepted the room that I had and was given a floor fan which really did nothing to improve the poor ventilation.
The Virrey has one of the most beautiful hotel locations in the city and overlooks the magnificent Zocalo or central square. The structure is spectacular and was at one time in history an opulent private mansion. One could not ask for a more perfect place to stay but it is extremely important to make sure you do not have an interior room.
The room we booked had a delicious breakfast included in the price which is well worth the extra money.
