The Top 5 Hotels in Chihuahua, Mexico
During my press trip to the city of Chihuahua this year, I checked out a variety of the best hotels in this fascinating city, which is located in northern Mexico.
The city is an enticingly inexpensive place to stay, if you know where to look. Some limited-service hotel chains in brand-new buildings might charge well over $100 a night, but some full-service, upscale brands can surprisingly be had for less money. And there’s definitely enough to do in this Mexican city to make it worth at least a two- or three-night stay, perhaps before or after a Copper Canyon vacation.

Best Mid-Price Hotel with Style in an Upscale Neighborhood: Ramada Encore Chihuahua
Located in an upscale, business-oriented neighborhood called Juventud, the Radisson Encore Chihuahua hotel is set in a modern building. In keeping with Ramada’s Encore brand, the mood is rather hip, with a fresh ambiance and stylish furnishings in the lobby — but a mid-priced positioning (somewhat like Starwood’s Aloft brand).

Part of the InterContinental Hotels Group, the Staybridge Suites Chihuahua is located within walking distance to the Fashion Mall.
