With an elegant white façade, colonial-style details inside and amenities that include a spa and pool, the eco-friendly InterContinental Presidente Puebla welcomes business and leisure travelers alike. The 200 guestrooms come in a number of configurations, but all have white linens, work desks, flat-screen TVs and marble bathrooms. The suites are well worth the upgrade, as they feature a separate dining and sitting area with olive-green sofas. The hotel’s lobby, adorned with columns and chandeliers, makes a dramatic setting for meetings or a drink, while the restaurant, La Cocina de los Angeles, incorporates local foodie traditions with international fare. Work off all the carbs at the on-site fitness center, open 24 hours a day.
In the Area
The area around Puebla is known for its dramatic scenery. Some guestrooms even have views of the Popocateptl volcano, which is surrounded by national park lands. (If conditions permit, see it up close on a challenging daylong hike.) The postcard-perfect village of Cholula, a former Aztec settlement known for its churches and archaeological sites, is well worth a daytrip as well. In Puebla itself, try specialities like molé poblano at local joints like Cemitas y Tortas Evelin or the more formal La Casona de la China Poblana.
How to Get There
I have traveled to Puebla very frequently over the last five years for business and have stayed at many of the hotels in the area. The Intercontinental Presidente is by far the best in my opinion. The hotel is very beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The staff is always very welcoming and accommodating before, during and even after all of my stays. The hotel offers two fantastic restaurants that will never disappoint also the breakfast buffet is very stocked with gourmet and local foods ever day ! It is also important to note that the presidente is located within a short, safe walking distance of many high end restaurants on Juarez Av. The lobby bar lounge is amazing and well stocked. It’s also always staffed with very friendly, talented and welcoming people that I have always appreciated while being away from home for long periods. The hotel also offers a very beautiful courtyard with a pool and balcony rooms overlooking it for a relaxing evening. The facility offers a very equipped gym with modern equipment as well as a fantastic laundry service. I truly believe that if you need to stay in Puebla for business or pleasure this hotel will not disappoint !
It is a great hotel located in the Modern Puebla. The rooms are spacious and the staff is friendly! The concierge team was amazing as they planned out an experience to Atlixco! Certainly a hotel that cannot be missed when visiting Puebla
Hotel met and exceeded all my expectations. I had rented a meeting room for 8 people and the setting was just wonderfully decorated, all goodies for coffee break were very pleasant. Everyone in my meeting felt very relaxed.
Thank you hotel staff, thumbs up well earned!!!
I stayed with my husband at the Presidente Intercontinental Puebla for 4 nights. The breakfast buffet is by far one of the best buffets I’ve had! It was $15 USD and worth every penny and more! I wish they had something like this in Dallas to enjoy it more often. We actually had a room in the executive floor (3rd floor) and they had Hors d'oeuvres from 6pm to 10pm daily included at no extra charge. These were top quality Hors d'oeuvres, in my opinion. That chef is truly talented! They have a selection of drinks and the best hot tea!! I was looking forward to this every evening! The pool is ok. My husband really enjoyed it. They had great espresso coffee in the room and bed was super comfortable. It was quiet and the service was superb. I loved hearing all the birds in the interior garden each morning. I would definitely want to stay here if we return to Puebla!
The hotel is very nice, the breakfast buffet is amazing and the hors d'oeuvre in the evening are very good. You get free beer, wine, any soda, tea, coffee with the hors d'oeuvre from 18-22, if you stay in the 3rd floor. We booked w/o breakfast and got our room upgraded when buying the breakfast.
