Hilton Guadalajara,
Mexico - Hotel Review

Conforming to Standards
Never Overdone, Never Underdone…Always Just Right

In the world of hospitality, where hotels tend to follow the trends of the moment, consistency is a commodity that's often overlooked. Offering the best value for services on the market today, Hilton hotels are nothing if not consistent. Wherever the country, whatever the city in which the property is located, guests will always find thoughtful accommodations with the latest technology, select dining options, facilities geared toward leisure and business and gracious service.

The Hilton group acquired its modern outpost in Mexico’s second largest city in 1998. Its range of comprehensive business amenities is understandable, given the hotel’s location within the business complex of the Guadalajara World Trade Center and just across the street from the state-of-the-art Guadalajara Convention Center. (A bridge that will connect the hotel directly to the center is in the offing.) We stayed on one of two Club Level floors, in a contemporary guest room that featured excellent views of the basin silhouetted by distant mountains. One of our executive privileges was a one-hour massage special for only $20.

In additional to their own Los Vitrales dining room, under the direction of a noteworthy chef who focuses on high-end Mexican specialties, the hotel counts a Santa Fe-style steakhouse and a wine bar called Vinifera among its dining venues. Not designed for swimming so much as it is for lounging beside and sunning is a small pool. The spa and fitness center is nicely outfitted with a gym, steam room, massage area and salon. Situated in a safe area of the city, the hotel will always be a sure bet as far as your travel choices.
