Mérida is known as the cultural capital of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. It is a beautiful, well maintained city and its colonial heart with busy streets and cosy plazas takes you back in time. The city is conveniently located between Campeche and Cancun and many highlights of the region, such as the Maya ruins of Uxmal and Chitzén Itza, are located nearby. Mérida itself offers a wealth of museums, beautiful colonial buildings and some of the best food in the region.
Right in the centre of this bustling city, one can discover the Hyatt Regency Mérida hotel. The five star hotel is located in the business district and is a good starting point for a stay in the region. Most of city’s biggest assets, such as the city cathedral, are located within walking distance.
Hyatt Regency Mérida is housed in a modern, large building which is easily recognizable from the outside. On the property you will also discover two tennis courts and an outdoor swimming pool. The design of the hotel is a mix between modern communal spaces, such as the Amuza restaurant or the Cielito Lindo Lobby Bar, and more traditional, colonial areas, such as the Peregrina Bistro restaurant and (some of) the rooms.
The hotel boasts 289 spacious rooms and suites. The design is somewhat classical and serene, fitting into the colonial atmosphere of the city. All of the rooms overlook the city and they are divided into the categories standard, regency club and suites. The club rooms feature a separate sitting area, work desk with high-speed Internet, separate bathroom and a king bed. Exclusive Regency Club amenities include breakfast, evening cocktails and snacks, turndown service and private lounge access. The presidential suite is one of Mérida’s most impressive rooms and is no less than 232 square meters big.
The hotel clearly is business-oriented but a solid choice for a leisure stay as well. For business travellers, the very spacious flexible space for meetings/events and the club room with sitting area and work desks are important advantages. For leisure travellers, the outdoor pool, the fitness area and the two lit tennis courts are great assets. The two restaurants and cosy bar appeal to both groups. At the Peregrina Bistro, one can enjoy local and international cuisine. At the Amuza restaurant, the chefs serve creative Latin American dishes. For drinks or great cocktails, head to The lobby lounge, Cielito Lindo, or the poolside (snack) bar.
Hyatt Regency Mérida is a good choice for travellers visiting Mérida for business or leisure purposes. The property offers many facilities and services for a memorable experience in the Yucatan region of Mexico. All of the spacious guestrooms and suites overlook the city and the outdoor pool, the fitness centre, the two great restaurants and the different bars will complete your stay in colonial Mérida. .
