Hotel's Favorite
4.0 of 5 bubbles
I've stayed at this hotel twice this year and have been pleased with the hotel overall. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The breakfast buffet was also satisfying. The price is somewhat high during the weekdays I assume for business travellers and they add $10.00 for an additional guest than 1, maybe this is normal but I have not noticed this before.

The staff is friendly but could use some training in hospitality. I assume they do not speak English but am not sure as I am fluent in Spanish.

I am staying there again on December 31st with my family.

Very nice, clean, safe hotel located in a good area close to the US Embassy. We arrived very late at night, and the gentleman at the front desk even called my phone to make sure everything was ok and that we would still be checking in. I apologized for coming so late and he said it was no problem at all, he would wait for us. When we arrived, he promptly checked us in after a quick temperature check to enter the building as required by law currently in El Salvador due to the Covid-19 situation. Our room was spotless and the bed was so comfortable we did not want to get up the next morning! The room on the seventh floor was very quiet and had lovely views of the city. My wife unfortunately came down with a sinus infection while we were on our trip (not Covid!) and the staff went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable, even bringing us some cups of hot water so we could make tea. The room had plenty of clean towels, toiletries, excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water in the shower, etc. The hotel is also well-lit and has 24 hour security to ensure your safety. Highly recommend to all!

Typical HI quality and great Salvadoran service. Clean, comfortable and great location. The price point is a little high but probably typical for the area. Hotel feels safe and has some good restaurants and malls nearby. The IHG price was higher even for a member, found cheaper rate from a third party site.

Sadly, This hotel did not meet our expectations. It looks fairly new and maybe not quite ready. Location is difficult to get to it and can be confusing with heavy traffic.Most of the staff are very attentive but needs to improve. Room was clean but had no towels till we asked. Room design is a bit add.no small refrigerator in room ,which is essential in El Salvador to keep cool drinks. we stayed only two nights, which I was glad we did not booked any more.Pool is small. bar did not know drinks. we ended walking away as did not even had the drink that were being advertised.
Positive: Breakfast buffet was very good and across street there is many restaurants. Views to Volcano are beautiful .

King bed is great was cleaned every day if you wanted had free parking close to mayor malls/shopping centers. Next to the US embassy all round good experience for me we did not get Hasseled at all nice bar and restaurant inside as well. Room had a small safe that came in handy to store our passports and other valuables. The hotels seems to be keep clean at all times. They had a really nice Christmas tree that gaves us a nice chearlful atmosphere. Any ways we stayed for a total of 12 days and we enjoyed the time there.

Stayed at the hotel for one night as part of a short family trip to El Salvador. The hotel facilities are very clean and nice and the staff were very attentive and courteous. Rooms were large and comfortable. The beds were firm and the pillow options were very good (tow pillow types are available, soft and medium) making it perfect for a good night sleep.

One special observation that I would like to point out is that during our stay, we left one of our iphone chargers in the room and the hotel staff had the decency of storing it in the lost and found for us to pickup. This is not a regular practice in many hotels and it is something that needs to be pointed out.

Se quedó aquí mientras mi hijo compitió en el campeonato de Arquero Juventud Pan Am y Masters durante una semana. North American Holiday Inns podría aprender de esta ubicación. El personal era amable y atento. Muchos hablaban inglés, pero aquellos que no eran muy pacientes y amables. Ellos usarían felizmente aplicaciones de traducción para comunicarse con nosotros. Todo estaba impecable. La recepción fue útil y un servicio de conducción se ubicó en la puerta principal. El tráfico es una locura. El desayuno buffet es más como uno encontrado en un complejo. Las tortillas y papusas están disponibles. Definitivamente se quedaría aquí de nuevo. Sólo hay un problema, no hay nevera en la habitación.

Stayed here while my son competed on the at the Pan Am Youth and Masters archery championships for a week. North American Holiday Inns could learn from this location. The staff were all friendly and attentive. Many spoke English, but those that did not were very patient and kind. They would happily use translations apps to communicate with us. Everything was spotless. The front desk was helpful and a driving service was located at the front door. Traffic is crazy here. The breakfast buffet is more like one found at a resort. Fresh made omelets and papusas are available. Would definitely stay here again. Only one issue, no refrigerator in the room.

The hotel is in a great locationand has good amenities. So note that there's quite a bit of traffic on this area. The rooms were spacious but, there was no refrigerator to keep drinks cool. This, however, wasn't an obstacle to keep me from working. The staff was very friendly and help us with our needs, including arranging transportation.
