Colonial and Historic Building, which was built in the 19th century. It is located three blocks away from the Metropolitan Cathedral. Under the management of Mr. Luis Morales Serrano became during several decades as the bullfighters' hotel, which for many people it still is.

This building is identified with a whole period of Guadalajara's history.

The Hotel offers the most modern and updated equipments and facilities combined with a classical colonial ambient and "climate". Everything focused for the comfort and enjoyment of all our distinguished guests, assuring and warranting that it will be a trip and a meeting back with the past of this great place.

It Might be mentioned as a curious aside that there are rumors and legends about tunnels that connect Hotel Morales to the Metropolitan Cathedral (about 1/2 mi. away). The date and reasons by which these underground passages were forgotten and cancelled remain unknown. Likewise, the use they were given is a mystery but their existence does give an enigmatic touch to Hotel Morales.

The Hotel Morales is classified as Artistic Heritage and Architectonical Jewel of the city of Guadalajara. It is also under protection of the INAH (National Anthropology and History Board of Mexico).

Colonial Downtown Experience

We have stayed at the Morales numerous times and continue to find it an excellent value. It is an attractively and respectfully renovated colonial-style property well located in centro. An easy walk to the cathedral, main squares, Degollado theater and Cabanas museum. Valet parking is included and there is a rooftop pool.

Best location, more than what you pay for!

Super classy with historic charm, staff was attentive and efficient. When we checked in our room our bathroom door was broken without hesitation they upgraded our room at no charge and moved all of our stuff for us. Extremely clean. The restaurant is good and not overpriced how you would expect from a hotel.

Nice Place, Great Location

A beautiful historic hotel. Good Restaurant. Front desk was not particularly friendly but the waiters were. The A/C could have been stronger but overall a very pleasant experience. I will stay there again.

The cafe in the holiday inn about 4 blocks away is a must. Good baguettes and coffee. I always go there a couple times when I'm in town.
