Spanish Colonial retreat set in manicured gardens in a town famous for its healing waters
Rife with columns, arches, and colonnaded walkways, this 85-room retreat exudes Old World refinement with a distinctly European flavor. Set among manicured gardens (dotted with classical statues, natch), the hotel leaves no Colonial-era motif unturned, from the splendid frescos painted on the walls of the restaurant and bar to the beamed ceilings in the breakfast room. The Los Murales restaurant–which also has an alfresco terrace dining area–dishes up a menu with both traditional Mexican and international flavors.
In the Area
If you happen to be in town in November, don’t miss the San Marcos National Fair, a weeklong festival celebrated since 1828 (although its agricultural origins date back even further) that galvanizes the town around various activities ranging from bullfights to the sampling of street foods. Take the waters at one of several hot springs around the area, ranging from basic thermal baths to complexes holding everything from restaurants to discos. Get your chocolate fix at
