The Riu is the tallest building in the city, located on the main cross town boulevard. It offers higher end one stop accommodations - restaraunt, bar, spa, gym, beauty shop/barber, pool etc. It has a bustling night life and conference/business facilities. Service, food quality, and security are all very good. For sightseeing tourists, the main drawback is it's isolation from...

The Hotel Rio was a wonderful hotel in Guadalajara. It's vistas that of the city are the best. Requested an upgraded room and was not disappointed. The suite was spacious and the design very modern and pleasing. Dined in the hotel for breakfast with my local friends and it was delicious. Very professional staff. Pool was gorgeous but I didn't...

Esteban at reception is incompetent in all matters. He will speak to you confidently as if he knows what he's talking about - but trust me, he doesn't. Communications with this hotel prior to arrival were a nightmare. They don't respond to emails. If you call, you are talking to people with limited English and who in any case have...

First, the breakfast is awesome -- it's way more than just breakfast -- there were full "dinner" items - hot entres (spare ribs one day), all breakfast foods you could think of, tons of fruit, cold cuts, cheese, cereals, pastries, soups, they even had a dessert section! The hotel is very modern in style and decoration. The shower was large...

Stayed at the Riu for four nights as part of a business trip and was very impressed with the customer service and the tremendous breakfast. Not only are their great Mexican classics like chilaquiles and sopas, but they also have a huge fruit bar and made to order omelets. The options are really endless and they have something that will...

This hotel is modern, has a pool, gym, spa, and restaurant, bar, and cafe. Service is friendly, valet parking, price is reasonable considering the quality. I love staying here and it is now my go-to hotel on my trips to GDL. I like the central location too. I can drive to GDL, park safely in their lot, and take Uber...

This was my first time to Guadalajara and this hotel was where the team was staying for the 4 days we were there. The hotel was in pristine shape, very modern, the room was awesome (both clean, room size, and view outside) and it had a very nice bar with live music during the week, and plenty or large screen...

Perfect place, perfect business setting, the service is not comparable to other Riu Hotels, but turns out, the service in this one is WAY BETTER than in other places in Guadalajara, (I need to emphasize this, service in Guadalajara is really bad) said this, the RIu excells in Guadalajara.
