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
Excellent service and cleaning. Good restaurants. The service on restaurant was amazing. I really recommend. Very safe area. In front of a mall plaza del sol. Good restaurants nearby. Excelente servicio. El desayuno en el restaurante Cafe Urbano estuvo genial. Los meseros muy atentos.
I have visited Guadalajara for business for 10+ years and literally follow an employee there named Roberto. He used to work at a Holiday Inn in the Centro Historico and moved to this location. The hotel is excellent but Roberto provides great service and is a definite keeper. Thanks
I had to call four times over a period of four days until the problem with air con in my room was fixed. Staff not concerned or apologetic. Waited hours to get laundry back only to be told they couldn’t send it because phone system is broken. Coffee system in the room leaked all over my things and onto the floor.
Room is big. Bed is comfortable.
Would be good if service and maintenance was improved.
Tidy hotel situated in the heart of Guadalajara. It has a stunning reception and glass elevators so you can appreciate the views as you go up to your room. Also to add the restaurant is phenomenal and inexpensive.
The hotel in general is average. However, it was renovated no long ago. The service we received was exeptional, we were very happy to be IHG Rewards Platinum members and InterContinental Ambassadors. We took advantage of all the benefits that come with the loyalty level, and we had a great stay. We utterly recommend the breakfast and to relax from 6-7 pm in the IC Club Hors d'oeuvres.
