“The Location Makes This Hotel Worth a Visit”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Drove into Leon with no reservation at rush hour and saw this hotel. Tired from a long drive we decided to check it out even though it was an American chain hotel. Have to say the location cannot be beat as it faces onto the Historic Central Square. It is unfortunate that the renovation of this old building was completed at the time when the old facade must have been felt to be out of date. It is the only building facing the square that looks out of place architecturally but that being said it was wonderful to look out on the central square and enjoy the street scene.

Our room had a balcony but no chairs or outdoor furniture on the balcony which would have been very appreciated. The room was basic and lacking in art on the walls and the bathroom needed an update but it was clean. Beds were comfortable but for some reason the hotel does not leave a controller for the Air Conditioner in the Room and so if you need to change the temperature you have to call the front desk... As a result in the middle of the night, rather than wait for someone to come we opened the balcony door as the room was too cold... terribly inconvenient and a waste of energy.

Staff where helpful and welcoming. But the best thing was the view from the room of the square and being able to leave the car in the parking lot (valet parking in included in the room price) and walk the historic downtown of Leon.

Room Tip: Recommend a room facing the central plaza

Probably the best location for a hotel in Leon. The staff was great, the rooms were clean and housekeeping did a wonderful job. I booked my room for a week and paid $31 dollars and was more then happy with my room. The only complaint I have was the WiFi was horrible

Hotel is a historic building right at the centre plaza with all the beautiful cathedrals around and lots of shoping and restaurants.Rooms in a wright wing of the hotel are outdated (i was at 4th floor) and need major renowation.No AC just a fan,windows are old and its imposible to close it and bed is old to.TV probably from 80th and almost no internet in a room.Then i exchange this room for another one on 3rd floor left wing and its much better rooms,renowated and with AC.By the way the staff of the hotel are exellent and always willing to help.Thanks to all of them.

I stayed here two nights the hotel staff were very friendly and competent.
The onsite restaurant is very convienient and open (as of this writing) until 11:00pm
The food was not superb but was tasty and after alot of driving in very hot weather and a busy
schedule in Leon Mexico the ice cold corona beer with dinner was extremely satisfying !!!
The Beds were a bit hard(slept like a rock anyway) and hot water in my sink was not functional and if you want a nice view rent one of the rooms facing towards the plaza the other rooms face a not very well kept outside section of the building. Other than these observations the place was great !!!!

Room Tip: Rent a room facing the plaza if you want a nice view !!!

Stayed here2 nights for the view of the awesome Plaza Principal. Unfortunately there is a karaoke bar on the plaza that entertained us until 3am on the second night. The view was worth the negatives. The hotel is ideally located for exploring Leon Centro. It is time the hotel replaces the towels - very thread bare.

Room Tip: Had room 635. Room 634 would be a slightly better view. Four rooms across the front are 34 to 37...

Stayed here two nights on a business trip. This was my second stay and I'll use the hotel again. The rooms are not huge, but they are clean and adequate. The beds are hard, but the AC works as does the cable TV. The hotel is super convenient to the historic city center, literally just walk out the door into the plaza. The staff was super friendly and helpful. While this is certainly not a 5 star hotel, it just works. And the price was right, too.
