“Quite nice, well located”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

I stayed here at least 10, maybe even 15 years ago, but it was good to be back. Superb location, can walk to all in Centro, they park your car, nice staff, very pretty. Rooms are nice and good sized with big bathrooms.

This must be tought to upkeep and you do see signs of that - feels a bit dusty or old fashioned, but clean. Brand new flat screen Sony televisions but they kept turning off as we watched. Not enough plugs in room (and none at desk) to charge 2 Blackberries and 1 I-Phone overnight so we had to unplug a lamp for a third plug. Otherwise, good.

Nice place, they do not allow non-guests/diners past their door into their patio. I would return.

The lobby of this hotel and the building itself are stunning; however, the hotel misrepresents its classifications of rooms on its website (a misrepresentation that also occurs on hotels.com). We decided, based upon the website pictures, to book a "royal" suite; however, when we arrived at the hotel, the room we were placed in (la pinta, I think), was not what we were expecting. When we talked to the concierge about it, he showed us another room that was available, but it was very similar to our room, except that it had 2 queen beds. We spent more money for a royal suite but ended up staying in one of the "delux" suites. Despite overpaying and our disappointment in the website misrepresentation of the rooms, the hotel was very romantic, and the concierge was extremely helpful. He was walking out the door to go home when we asked him about tours of the Sierra Gorda missions, and he stayed for a few hours beyond his shift to help us arrange a tour (the missions are a must see!).

Room Tip: It might be helpful to ask for a specific room, as each suite is named. I'm not sure how to fin...

This Hotel is full of beautiful rich history and architecture. Each room offers different themes, high ceilings, and classical Mexican furniture. This is a very old hotel with modern convenience, great customer service, centrally located within town. Don't stay here if you are looking for a modern place with all the convenience of a tier one chain hotel, stay here if you want to experience a classical hotel, boutique offerings and incredible architecture. I love this place, it s a great way to experience Queretaro Mexico.

This hotel was simply beautiful. From the fresh flowers and vines, to the incredible attention and help of the management and concierge staff, it was an incredible place to stay. The hotel is very close to a local square with things to do every night. It was also very close to shopping and banks. The bed was a little too hard for our taste. The room had 30' beam ceilings, and a walkout balcony. It had a rough-hewn 2inch thick wood door, with a chain and ancient padlock instead of a key card! :) WiFi only worked in the lobby area, but that was explained to us when we checked in. Overall we greatly enjoyed our stay, and wished we could have been there longer!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in the main building, as it seemed more secure.

this was our first experience in this hotel and we were there for two nights. The rooms are big with very high ceilings, with antique furniture. we were at the Casa Azul, which is the Casa Azul, not in the main building which is more beautiful. The Internet was a failure, with the exception of the lobby. The service needs to improve a lot in order to comply with the expectations that an old house that was converted in a boutique hotel may arise in the travelers.The property and the rooms, including the bathrooms are clean and spacious.
It is quite an experience to stay here and avoid the big chain hotels that are all the same. One of my children asked me: "why are we going to sleep in a museum?".
The rate is not expensive and you will get more than you spent there. Highly recommended, and it is located in the Historic Center of Queretaro.

My husband and I stayed overnight at Casa de la Marquesa for the third time this weekend. We still like the hotel very much; our room in the annex, Casa Azul, was lovely, bathroom great, and it was very quiet, -- a little surprising, as the room was right on the street. Wooden shutters kept the noise out, and the town quiets down nicely after 11 p.m.. Service in the restaurant was good (Caesar salads made tableside; excellent live pianist at Sat. breakfast time), & food great. My worry is about the infrastructure. Instructions on wi-fi didn't work. Reception staff seemed very harried & distracted, both at check in and departure. They were not sure how much we still owed them; took them quite a while to figure it out. They were not their former outgoing, welcoming selves. Restaurant staff seemed harried, as well. I discovered last week that the hotel is no longer listed as a Mexican Boutique Hotel on that website, so am wondering if there's some management shift going on. We'll try them again, as we love the hotel, and will hope this was just a very temporary blip.

Room Tip: If you want the main building, book your room carefully online. "Suites de lujo" are in t...
