Excellent location, lots of things to do from early morning to late night. If you want to experience history, this hotel, won't disappoint. The city of Morelia is a treasure trove of well-preserved 17th- and 18th-century buildings. The hotel is located in the historic center, a great location to explore all the museums, cultural spaces, exhibition centers, restaurants, and nightlife. There is something of interest in every corner within walking distance. The beds were comfortable, the room decor is charming, the bathroom was just OK to my taste, it needs to be updated. But overall, the atmosphere is beguiling. There might be a ghost (or two), which adds a certain allure. You can imagine people from the past in all sorts of elegant dresses mingling in the great ballroom, or going up and down the regal staircases. There are countless of creepy life-sized portraits, and decor. We had a continental breakfast in the small restaurant. It was full and we had to wait for about 10 mins to be seated. Food was good, you can also order à la carte from delicious mexican dishes. There was a pianist, playing soft music in the background. The hotel is keeping up with renovations/upkeep that you might encounter. Our room location was quiet. We chose to be on the second floor farther from the entrance (can be a bit loud due to the bars and the lively people dancing in the plaza). But if you want to experience the majestic fireworks and light-show at the cathedral-- and if you don't mind the music, then a room with a balcony overlooking the plaza will suit you just fine.
