This welcome addition to the San Luis Potosi hotel scene has an enviable spot in Lomas, an upscale, quiet neighborhood that’s within a short drive of the vibrant historic center (where most of the museums are) and the convention center. Business travelers will be drawn to the 24-hour room service and fitness center—plus there’s the Tequila Corner for some fun—while tourists looking for a comfortable base for sightseeing will be happy with the spacious rooms. The 6th-floor pool is ideal for cooling off after a day of pounding the pavements of the colonial quarter, and the Sonoma Restaurant & Wine bar does super-fresh food with a healthy, California-esque bent—a refreshing change from usual hotel offerings. A sunset cocktail poolside, post-swim and pre-dinner, is just what the doctor ordered.
In the Area
The historic center is a few miles to the east, and deserves at least one full day of exploration. Highlights here include the charming Museo Regional Potosino, part of a former Franciscan monastery that now displaying exhibits of artifacts from the area’s indigenous people, and the National Mask Museum, which has a haunting collection of masks from all over the country. The Museo Federico Silva is a cultural center and arts space with fascinating permanent and temporary exhibits. After a day of sightseeing in the historic district, dine at La Gran Vía, an elegant spot for gourmet Spanish food with some Mexican elements added in (ask to sample the Mexican wines). Closer to home is the Convention Center, less than 10 minutes by car, which is handy for business travelers. The hotel is on the edge of the sprawling Parque Tangamanga, the perfect place for a run or a walk—it has plenty for kids to do, too, including a small zoo, play areas, and bike rentals.
