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.
How to Get There
With its clean room, great service and good food. morning you can enjoy buffet kind of breakfast. evening you can have good dinner. I would specially mention the quietness of the rooms. you do not hear door slamming, water noise when other guest are using restroom. I can recommend this hotel to all my friends.
Definitely this is the best hotel in the city A perfect mix betwenn work/rest. Perfect rest!!!!! There is no better pillows and bed anywhere!! all staff is really working hard to make us feel home. Absolutely nice facilities and great gym It will be my choice anytime I come back to San Luis
We have regularly visited Mexico's tourist spots of Cabos, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, etc.; however, the new Conrad San Luis Potosi prompted us to explore a new city, and we found it delightful.
From other Trip Advisor reviews, we knew the hotel prides itself on a high level of personal service. Nonetheless, we will thoroughly impressed from the moment we arrived to our departure.
Claudia, the Head Concierge, personally met us at the airport. She provided some insights into the city and offered suggestions on what to do. In addition to Claudia, we found the entire team anxious to please. Antonio, the Front Office Manager, went above and beyond to keep us smiling; he even provided many photographic memories of our stay. Fernando, the Exec Chef, kept us well fed, while Rebekkah and Antonio looked after us in the Sonoma restaurant. Overseeing the entire team is Jorge, the Cluster Manager. Not only did Jorge look after us at the Conrad, he continued to look after us when we moved next door to the Hilton where he also serves as General Manager - hence, the title of Cluster Manager.
We spent evenings enjoying a glass of wine in the Exec Lounge before moving to Sonoma for dinner. I often judge a restaurant by its risotto and Sonoma's version was outstanding. One word of caution: the food portions are big. Share a main dish; order the small portion if given the option.
We also spent several evenings in the Dry Martini Bar located in the hotel lobby. The bartenders (Carlos and a different Fernando) kept us well entertained and educated us on the many bar offerings. I took photos of most of their recommendations so that I can look for the bottles in the U.S.
We enjoyed our King Terrace Suite (one large single room) that had a small semi-circular terrace with views of the city. To explore the city, we took a private car contracted by the hotel. Another day, we simply asked for a taxi. While the former is more pricey, it is also much more convenient because taxis are not always readily available when we were ready to return to the hotel.
While the hotel does not have its own spa, the Front Desk does have a list of therapists who will bring a massage table to the room. Just confirm that the hotel actually calls the therapist that you have selected, instead of a different one that is more costly and provides a shorter treatment.
Not only were the hotel personnel polite and friendly, we found all the local people we encountered in the city to be equally friendly. We definitely plan to return soon to experience more of the excellent hospitality.
