If you are looking for the finest Guanajuato Hotels, there are two world class hotels described below and are well worth checking out further by using our web site links below each property. The Villa Maria Cristina is our favorite and stacks up against any boutique hotel world-wide. Quinta de las Acacias is also a luxury boutique hotel.
VILLA MARIA CRISTINA Fine taste pervades the hotel throughout, with impeccable attention to detail, offering the cozy and stylish atmosphere of an aristocratic home. Its 13 spacious suites with wooden floors and marble bathrooms, are decorated with French furniture and take full advantage of the architectural style, with large windows allowing for natural light, creating an atmosphere of elegant intimacy. The warm, terracotta-colored walls, floors inlaid with mosaics and hallways punctuated by plants, create pleasant public areas and a sense of space.
The terrace, with its king-size jacuzzi beneath a pergola, is the ideal space for al fresco dining, afternoon tea or an evening cocktail, when the light thrown by the wrought-iron lamps and the water features create a romantic ambiance.
The hotel also serves as the ideal location for a special occasion or event, from conferences and meetings to weddings and celebrations. The hotel's spa, with a Roman-style sunken pool, whirlpool, Swiss showers and treatment rooms, is an oasis in which to be pampered just a short walk from your suite.
The restaurant, occupying an elegant salon on the first floor, serves an ever-changing menu of exquisite dishes of Mexican and international inspiration, perfectly complemented by fine wines from all over the world from the hotel's extensive cellar. The first-class, friendly service from the staff will cater to your every whim and make you feel at home, away from home, while private limousine service from the local airport or Mexico City means your luxury experience begins even before you reach the hotel.

It has been a hotel for more than 100 years and it has received and hosted famous and noteworthy people like Don Porfirio Díaz in 1903, to inaugurate the Theater Juárez. In 1987 Raúl Castillo Venegas took on the project of restoring it to his image of what the building was like in his infancy.
