Lonely Planet review
The lobby is drop-dead gorgeous with a spectacular stained-glass atrium, and the rooms have an aging grace with old, wood floors and high ceilings – ask for a room with plenty of windows, as some can be dark. The restaurant does Morelia’s swankiest Sunday brunch (mains average M$100), complete with made-to-order omelets, platters of fresh tropical fruits and a dessert table with a flowing chocolate fountain.
Our independent authors have visited Virrey De Mendoza and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Morelia.
