I typically stay in the tried and true hotel chains when I travel because there is always a comfortable amount of consistency, thus reducing the potential for a bad stay. However, when travelling out of the USA, I typically choose using two criteria...first, does it have a good rating on tripadvisor, and second, does it meet my budget.
I picked a winner when I decided to stay here. From the moment I walked through the entrance, I was feeling like I had moved up in the world. Fresh flowers were abundant in the lobby. The desk staff was tremendous and bi-lingual (and they were gracious enough to allow me to practice my Spanish...without laughing). After completing the check in process, an bell-boy travelled with me to my room. Upon entry he showed me how to control the AC (great AC by the way) and the television. The bed was comfortable, the room was spotlessly clean, and the room was quiet.
The hotel is located near the waterfront (close to the port...the beaches are a little further) and the Malecon. There are plenty of restaurants nearby (including those attached to the hotel) with most offering live music (typically marimba). There was plenty of fresh guava, fresh pineapple, and fresh coconut to satiate my fruit desires (all with sides of lemon and chili).
If you're wanting a great place to stay while visiting Veracruz, this hotel should be high on your list. The quality was fantastic, the service wonderful, and the price amazingly reasonable.
