Colonial and Historic Building, which was built in the 19th century. It is located three blocks away from the Metropolitan Cathedral. Under the management of Mr. Luis Morales Serrano became during several decades as the bullfighters' hotel, which for many people it still is.

This building is identified with a whole period of Guadalajara's history.

The Hotel offers the most modern and updated equipments and facilities combined with a classical colonial ambient and "climate". Everything focused for the comfort and enjoyment of all our distinguished guests, assuring and warranting that it will be a trip and a meeting back with the past of this great place.

It Might be mentioned as a curious aside that there are rumors and legends about tunnels that connect Hotel Morales to the Metropolitan Cathedral (about 1/2 mi. away). The date and reasons by which these underground passages were forgotten and cancelled remain unknown. Likewise, the use they were given is a mystery but their existence does give an enigmatic touch to Hotel Morales.

The Hotel Morales is classified as Artistic Heritage and Architectonical Jewel of the city of Guadalajara. It is also under protection of the INAH (National Anthropology and History Board of Mexico).

Very nice..

Although this trip was very short, most employees at the hotel were very nice and accommodating, w/the exception of one courtesy desk employee, although he was accommodating he was not very pleasant. Kudos to the bell boys.. Yes I would stay there again.

Beautiful Hotel but terible acoustics

Hotel is in a great location. Its beautiful and very confortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only downside we found was that even tho we were in the 3rd floor we could hear people talking and laughing in the lobby, the elevator humming as it went up & down,closing / opening of doors ect .... very glad that it all stopped at night

Absolutely Fabulous Hotel!

This is an absolutely fabulous hotel in one of Mexico's most beautiful and exciting cities! Located in the historical center, the location could not be better. You can walk to all the sights (and there are many), and great restaurants and shopping are everywhere. The hotel itself is a colonial beauty in excellent condition. The rooms are large and lovely and the beds and pillows are luxurious. Most of all, the staff was super friendly and helpful and committed to meeting our every need. Can't wait to go back!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Mercado Libertad is a short walk away and is an excellent place to eat breakfast (I would not recommend the hotel restaurant). If you like local color and excitement along with great food at rock bottom prices, you'll enjoy this experience. Mmmm... chilaquiles with eggs and fresh squeezed orange juice for less than a small latte at Starbucks!

Imperial Suite - Unsuitable for Royalty

1. some front desk personnel obnoxious - when we asked for bottled water, we were told to go and get it ourselves; 2. our "Imperial Suite" had leaking a/c - leaking commode - leaking refrigerator; and, whoever would expect our "Imperial Suite" to be covered with laminate flooring (hardly appropriate for the period of restoration); ceramic tile would have been the flooring of choice; large room (not suite) appeared sparsely filled with furnishings - much wasted floor space for amount of furnishings used; 3. for the $170.00 we paid per night for our 3-day stay was way over-priced and much more enjoyment could have been found in less expensive establishments; 4. the nicest employee was the housekeeper who was reponsible for our room (she deserves a raise in pay and/or promotion). Her smile said it all! 5. true, the decor in the common areas was very nice, however, one can't spend 24-hours roaming the halls and admiring the renovated surroundings.
