Fiesta Americana Mérida Review

This posh hotel echoes the grandeur of the mansions on Paseo Montejo, and its spacious lobby—with groupings of plush armchairs where guests often lounge—is filled with colonial accents and gleaming marble. Above is a 300-foot-high stained-glass roof. The tasteful and subdued guest rooms, inspired by late-19th-century design, have extras like balconies, bathtubs, hair dryers, and coffeemakers, but be prepared to pay surcharges on coffee, Wi-Fi, and bottled water. Some rooms face the street and have a little more noise, while others face a dull inner courtyard with the hotel pool, so be sure to specify which you'd prefer. Downstairs you'll find a department store, a couple of restaurants (including a Chili's), souvenir shops, and myriad other shops and services. Occasionally there are events at the hotel, including dinner shows and dances for children, so inquire whether anything is in the works at the front desk.
