Positive Reviews


Fantastic breakfast.

A mouth-watering breakfast awaited guests in the morning, and it did not disappoint. A dizzying array of choices could be found, including freshly squeezed juice, delectable pastries, a panini press for sandwiches, and some of th best banana bread guests had eaten.Top this off with an omelet station, and there may not be room for lunch. Guests also appreciated that early risers heading out were given something to eat, even if the buffet hadn't opened yet.


Exceptional staff.

Sometimes all you want is a friendly face to greet you at the end of a long journey, and Presidente definitely delivers on that front. Ready with maps to share places of interest, front desk staff were helpful and welcoming, according to guests. Those looking for outstanding service may not have to look any further.


Updated rooms.

Guests were pleasantly surprised to find their rooms recently renovated. Whether you choose a standard room, spa room, or suite, you will find contemporary decor with modern amenities. The refreshed rooms with minimal wear and tear really impressed guests.

Negative Reviews


A little hard to find.

Guests driving to the hotel discovered that is was somewhat tucked away from main streets, making it frustrating to locate. Those on foot were equally perplexed with the hotel's location, and found GPS to be critical in finding their accommodation. On the plus side, once guests navigated the maze of city streets, they were happy to find locked car parking.


Some street noise.

Even though the hotel is slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of Central Avenue, guests reported that they would have preferred a room on a higher floor to avoid outside noise.


Ask about windows.

A few visitors to Presidente found that their hotel room was without a window. While many rooms have city or mountain views, you might want avoid any surprises by inquiring.
