Mérida, Yucatán — With a US$15 million investment, the Misión group will open two more hotels in the city, including one on Paseo Montejo, confirmed Roberto Zapata Llábres, chairman of the board and managing director of the chain.

The new hotels are due to be inaugurated next year. The chair already operates a 110-room hotel on Calle 59 in the Centro, near Parque Mejorada.

The Paseo Montejo locale will have 120 rooms and will match the colonial style of the area, Zapata Llábres said.

The second hotel, which will be in the Historic Center , will offer express service and have 80 rooms.

A story in Sipse today did not share any more details, including specific sites. Misión once ran the pink hotel at 60 and 57, which has been undergoing an extensive renovation. The tower has been reported to be a future Holiday Inn Express, and the base was to be an unnamed boutique hotel.

The vice-president of tourism for the local chapter of the chamber of commerce, hailed the announcement as a vote for the city’s dynamic presence, particularly with the new convention center that is rising in the hotel zone.

This adds to the 12 new hotels and 1,600 additional hotel rooms already announced to be under way or in the pipeline. Most will be near the still-unfinished International Convention Center on Calle 62 between avenidas Colón and Cupules, but the Altabrisa area, the Prolongación of the Paseo de Montejo and the Periférico are also in the sightlines of investors.

A Sheraton and a Hotel Xixim will rise near the new convention center, according to unofficial reports from CETUR. Architectural renderings depicting a flashy Paseo 60, with one or more hotels behind the Hyatt Regency, have also been floated. It is not known how speculative that project is.


TripAdvisor lists 103 hotels, not counting guesthouses and specialty lodging, in Mérida.
