Great location in GDL the rooms are huge and the view can't be beat. Their morning breakfast is immense with many offerings of local breakfast cuisine. The staff is not as friendly as they should be, somewhat stuck up which is the only reason I did not give 5 stars.

We checked in at 11. 45 pm the day after Xmas and upon check in decided to upgrade for a further 600 pesos to floor 35 and above so we got a better view of the city and access to the lounge for snacks, light breakfast and drinks which was worth the 600 pesos paid, that was the best part.The...

US citizen currently working abroad in Guadalajara. Stayed for a weekend at the hotel with my girlfriend. Everything appeared to be fine until check out at which point there appeared to be an $80+ USD charge from drinks ordered at the hotel bar from the night before. Surprised, I assured the employee that this was a mistake. About a day...

They have a very friendly staff, free wifi, a free minibar, very nice rooms including a comfortable bed and nice bathrooms. Pretty convenient for the fair grounds as well. It's not in the old part of the city so if you are looking for that, I would suggest somewhere else but if you are traveling to Guadalajara on business, I...

We spent thanksgiving 5 days at Rui palace. Lovely place, staff very friendly and cooperative. Four specialty restaurants - food best at early seating. Buffets also very good, breakfast outstanding. Only complaint was no turkey for thanksgiving. But we enjoyed Japanese dinner. Suggest ask for saki heated.

Nice tall hotel, beautifully decorated in modern style, with spacious, comfotable clean rooms. The breakfast bufet is one f the best I have ever seen. The gym room is a real disapointment for such a good hotel. And the TV in the room is a bit small, with no on demand movies or internet - weird for such a new...

This hotel is the best in Guadalajara because is unic, tendy, great price and service. Also the band that was there on Thursday night was one of the best I've hear in years. Everything in this Hotel is just above the rest and I cant think about anything bad about it.

This is probably the best hotel in Guadalajara. It is ultra-modern. The rooms are big and comfortable. It has a very nice bar near the lobby and the possibly best breakfast in the Western hemisphere. Well worth it and reasonably priced.

This is an overall great hotel,service is excellent and rooms are great. The pool is a great place to hang out on a hot day, then head out to town. Location is ok, quick taxi rides to anywhere in town, but nothing walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.
