Holiday Inn Zócalo Review

This hotel couldn't have a better location—on the Zócalo and close to a gaggle of museums, restaurants, and historic buildings. You'd expect nothing less than to be in the heart of the colonial city, given that one wing of the building was once the home of Hernán Cortés. Rooms have wooden floors, wrought-iron or chunky wooden headboards, crisp white spreads, touches of red upholstery. Flat-screen TVs and pillow menus are nice touches, too. There's some atmosphere to the terrace restaurant, which has slate floors, old-fashioned wrought-iron tables, and an amazing view of the Catedral Metropolitana and Palacio Nacional.

    Great Location!

    Based on a 2004 stay: This was a clean and perfectly comfortable, if not highly luxurious, place to stay. We had a jr. suite, which included a big jacuzzi, and featured a tall, skinny window that looked directly out on the Zocalo. The window perch made for fascinating people watching, from the comfort of our hotel room. While it's essentially a mid-level, plain-vanilla, modern hotel (inside a historic building), there were nice touches like Talavera items decorating the rooms and halls. Nice rooftop bar/restaurant as well. Hope to stay there again soon!
