Hotel Maison Lafitte is conveniently located between the main plaza (the historic district) and Paseo de Montejo. We were able to easily walk to both. It's also across the street from Parque Santa Lucia where they have free traditional dancing on Thursday nights, and where they set up tables and chairs and live musicians and you can order drinks and food every night, as far as we could tell.
The free parking lot is small but we were always able to get a spot. The hotel has a business center with free computers/internet, a bar, a restaurant, 2 courtyards, a pool (cold), and a boutique.
Our room had two double beds, tv, a/c, toilet, shower, sink, closet with safe (but no key), iron, ironing board, and a minibar with drinks and snacks (for a fee).
The courtyards are beautiful with lush tropical vegitation and fountains. The free breakfast was the best free breakfast we had at any of the places we stayed. It was a buffet and had a good selection of fruit, cereal, granola, 3 hot dishes each day, pastries, juices, etc.
The clientele seemed to be upper middle class Mexicans, which suited us just fine. We enjoyed staying in a place where we weren't surrounded by other native English speakers. The staff was very friendly and always available.
