Lonely Planet review
The lobby is drop-dead gorgeous with a spectacular stained-glass atrium that gives the stained-glass windows of the cathedral a run for their money. Rooms have an aging grace with old, wood floors and high ceilings – ask for one 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 omelettes, 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.
