The first luxury boutique hotel in Mexico was created in 1986 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, blending contemporary elegance and baroque art to create a timeless, quintessential Mexican hotel.
Today that property, Quinta Real Guadalajara, which lends its name to Quinta Real Hotels‘ ten hotel collection, has become part of the most distinguished group of hotels in Mexico.
Quinta Real Hotels breaks the barriers of the conventional hotel, featuring innovative architecture in each of its destinations, embracing both design and history throughout its properties and inviting guests to engage instead of remain simple visitors; to become interpreters of Mexico’s legacy, written every day. As an exclusive collection of jewels, each hotel and its design exists purposefully, carefully blending into their natural and historical landscapes and combining beautiful interior design, art and culture.
Quinta Real Hotels can be found in some of Mexico’s most important business centers, such as Guadalajara, Monterrey, Saltillo, Aguascalientes and Villahermosa, as well as in colonial capitals like Zacatecas, Oaxaca and Puebla and resort destinations like Huatulco and Acapulco.
The colonial roster begins at Quinta Real Oaxaca. With centuries of history coursing through its magnificent building—originally founded in the 16th century as the Santa Catalina de Siena Convent—Quinta Real Oaxaca has become part of the city’s beating heart, located only a few steps away from the famous Santo Domingo Church and other downtown cultural attractions. A member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts, as well as Historic Hotels Worldwide, is an emblematic icon of the region’s rich heritage and culture. Make sure to take a walk through the hotel, brimming with stories, and to relax beneath the old chapel, an ideal setting for celebrating both weddings and Mexico’s traditional Guelaguetza dance festival.
Quinta Real Zacatecas, one of the most singular hotels in the world, built into the grandstand of San Pedro’s beautifully restored 19th century bullring. Ingeniously preserving the character and beauty of the original structure, the restoration project received the International Architectural Award just after it was inaugurated in 1989.
Boasting 49 Suites set around the Patio—the portion of the bullring that has been converted into a beautiful colonial-style veranda finished with cobblestones, abundant flowers and a restaurant and bar—the hotel reflects the grandeur and hospitality of the city of Zacatecas itself, attracting the world’s travelers to both a different time and a different place.
In March of 2013, Quinta Real also added another property in the beautiful city of Puebla, a 16th Century historic setting that once served as both a jail and a monastery. A perfect blend of past and present, Quinta Real Puebla is located only a few steps away from the city’s magnificent historic center.
Quinta Real Hotels stands proudly by the values of hospitality, refinement and exclusivity with each its properties, proudly preserving the rich legacy and culture that Mexico is known for around the world. With exquisite gastronomy served in each restaurant and on each room service tray, the Quinta Real collection has also become social destinations, perfect for exclusive meetings or corporate events held in the hotels’ banquet rooms and beautiful gardens.
To embrace a Quinta Real experience is to simultaneously enter a world where luxury, beauty and history combine to redefine everything you thought you knew about hospitality and service.
