The hotel is located at Avenue Oriente 6 No. 892 Col. Centro, near local attractions such as the Iron Palace and the Mier y Pesado Castle. Decorated in a contemporary style, the hotel conversion, overseen by Constructora Guraieb and Associates, generated more than 370 employment opportunities.
Holiday Inn hotels feature a residential atmosphere that is warm, trend forward and comfortable. Guest beds are made using crisp, white bedding with pillows that come in two comfort levels: "soft" and "firm." The residential design includes business-focused necessities such as an ergonomic workstation and data ports with the bathrooms including a multifunctional showerhead, as well as a signature shower curtain with curved rod, and Bath & Body Works bath products.
