A glittering all-glass megahotel in downtown Guadalajara, the Intercontinental Presidente is a business traveler favorite with spacious, modern guestrooms, an all-day restaurant and go-to tequila bar. The towering lobby makes a grand first impression, with internal elevators cruising between guest floor balconies and modular, cigar-colored sofas adding a cozy contrast to the marble check-in desks. In guestrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows frame timeless views of the cityscape and Sierra Madre mountains, but the interior style is wholly modern, with striped fabric headboards on the King, Queen and Double beds, floating bed side tables, and a simple monochrome palette set off by tangy pops of turquoise and orange. All have flatscreen TVs, coffee makers and spacious all-white bathrooms with standalone or over-tub showers. Downstairs, Frutas & Flores restaurant is the hotel’s all-day spot for Mexican and international fare, including a hot-and-cold breakfast buffet, while the Tequila Collection bar is an after-hours destination for sampling some of the 150+ premium tequilas, as well as frequent live music nights. Any over indulgence can be remedied in the small gym (or nearby at a full-service fitness center) or at the outdoor swimming pool, which has views across Guadalajara.
In the Area
Hop a cab to the Old City in the morning before the crowds arrive and explore the landmark Cathedral, Government Palace, Plaza de Armas and the Regional Museum, which is housed in an 18th-century seminary. Fans of sacred architecture shouldn’t miss the churches of Santa Monica and San Agustin. For a local neighborhood vibe, head to the nearby town of Tlaquepaque, known for its open-air markets (good for Mexican crafts and keepsakes), small restaurants and great tequila bars, including favorite El Adobe. For dinner, head to bustling Avenida Lopez Cotilla for a raft of indoor/outdoor cafes, bars and dance clubs.
How to Get There
Stayed here for a week on a business trip. The hotel lobby is beautiful and offers two restaurants on-site and a small gift shop. Check in service was very polite and helpful, my room was huge with a king bed and oversized bathroom of windows looking out onto a large balcony with great city views. The room was clean and very quiet, bed was firm but comfortable. The door locks were a little strange, seemed as though all of them had been reworked at some point and didn't quite match up but they worked for me. I had access to the lounge for a complimentary breakfast each morning and tapas and drinks in the evening. Wait staff were very kind and helpful. Easy walk across a pedestrian bridge to the shopping center across the street with many shops to enjoy plus food and a grocery store. Other restaurants are nearby, within safe walking distance. I would stay here again if given the opportunity.
Rooms are good, the staff are very kind and helpful. Special thanks to Mr. Andres, He always remember your preferences and he is very friendly.
The hotel has 3 excellent restaurant, well choice when you are tired and you don't want to go out.
I enjoy the services of the hotel since June and I'm very satisfied.
Firstly I would like to thank the excellent service provided by all the staff in general of this hotel. I have been enjoying the services of this hotel since 2 years and always counting on a high degree of excellence in all services. A special mention the excellent service of Mr. Andres (continental club) always providing a differentiated service to us from abroad, making our long stays in Guadalajara always pleasant. Congrats for his excellent service in high quality standards and total satisfaction for the hotel guests. Big thank you and regards for all staff members
This is the second time our family has “lived” at this hotel. I really like this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They are so nice to our 2 small children. We live here for weeks at a time so having a friendly staff is always nice.
The breakfast buffet with a cook to order station are delicious.
Most of services are impact in Intercontinentale Guadalajara.
Staying in this place was a chalenge.
- Water service issues in shower. 10 minutes to get warm water and after it swing between cold and warm in mater of seconds
- Walls are paper thin and you can hear conversations next room
- Noise from streets get to your room because of no sound proof glass
- Door key (cards) are made with magnet and place with or near your smart device will de magnetize them.
- Hotel is covered with carpet that is so hold people with allergies will be at their best in this place
- Floors are uneven and nothing have been renovated since this place exist.
- Unsafe area with transgenders that are ready to rob you if you are outside once sun goes down.
- Walking around is an adventure that can cause you your life. Car drivers are ready to run you over to gain a meter space.
- Complete area as so many garbages and plastic waist that you can see, smell and bread.
- Security of Intercontinentale will make you feel unwelcome and unwilling to help
- pool is on 12th floor and room from 14th floor will complain on any noise that will come up(with reason, again windows room are not sound proof.)
