We stayed at the Intercontinental Presidente Merida during a conference we attended. The hotel has the feel of a once-great property that now languishes a bit in the 80s. The front entrance is undistinguished. The lobby is a nice size but rather outdated in appearance. Our room was on the first level as far from the elevator as possible. Thus we used the stairs to get back and forth from the lobby, even though we often had to walk through meeting groups and coffee set-ups. The room was of a decent size and had some lovely old-world elements in the moldings. The decor and overall feeling was dated though. There was a nice-sized closet and an easily workable in-room safe. The room AC worked great. The bathroom was of a good size but did not come with washcloths. We called for them but they never arrived. The following day we called again and someone brought them up. The days following this we got one new one each day although there were two of us in the room. The staff was business-like, so that was not a problem. The excercise room is small and the AC goes off when the room is empty. So, upon arriving in the room if it is unoccupied, it is very hot. We had a wonderful and very inexpensive dinner in the large restaurant, which was occupied by just one other diner at the time. It made it a bit depressing. The hotel is adjacent to the Hyatt and to the Fiesta Americana, both of which seemed more upscale although quite a bit more hectic. I doubt we would stay here again when we return to Merica, unless the price and circumstances warranted it.
