Be a guest at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Monterrey to discover a city where cutting-edge public spaces coexist with centuries-old architecture against a timeless mountain backdrop.
The city's urban parks and pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods are dotted with inexpensive museums, restaurants and nightlife choices. Our Monterrey hotels are close to the Macroplaza, a large urban square filled with strolling pedestrians and captivating sculptures. Locals play in 350-acre Fundidora Park, a former industrial site transformed into a sprawling urban park. Pop into the science and industry museum at Galería del Acero nearby. Admission is free on Thursdays at the centrally located Museum of Mexican History, built on the site where the city was founded in the 16th century. High atop Bishopric Hill, the collection at the Bishopric Museum spans the historic evolution of the region, with artifacts from 1000 b.c., oil paintings from the colonial period and 19th-century military uniforms. After you leave the museum, take in the panoramic views of the city below from the scenic overlook.
From our hotels in Monterrey, you can walk or take a taxi to Barrio Antiguo (Old Town), rich with colonial atmosphere and packed with affordable eateries specializing in grilled cabrito (kid goat). Explore the cobblestone streets of the old town, where street vendors dish out savory tacos and late-night clubs serve locally brewed beer. At night, step out from one of our Monterrey hotels to stroll the lighted greenways along Paseo Santa Lucia, a manmade canal.
