The place is beautiful, it's a large hotel in a historical building with a central garden with swimming pool, in the center of Durango. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. However, the service is extremely slow and unreliable, at both the reception and breakfast.

This was our first trip to Mexico outside of a resort. The friend we were visiting recommended this hotel and we were very pleased. Service was excellent, grounds were spotless, and the food in the restaurants was excellent. Since we were tourists on this visit, the location was perfect...walking distance to everything in the city center.

Lovely hotel with impeccable service. The food was excellent in all the restaurants, and the staff was more than accommodating in helping with our language barrier. Very safe, very elegant hotel. The bar in the lobby is fabulous with excellent drinks and entertainment in the evenings. The courtyard around the pool is beautiful with lush gardens. Top notch!!

This was our first, of what will be many, visits to Durango, Mexico. The hotel was very nice and I imagine it is the best in town. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Fresh bottled water was supplied every day, as well as coffee service. We will definitely be back on our next visit. Excellent location too.

Built in the 70's, the"El Gobernador" is still Durangos' grand hotel. Very centrally located, with easy access to the growing number of museums and attractions that the last two State and Local governments have worked hard to put in place. The city's center has come alive as a result of the renovations performed on colonial palaces, buildings, streets and squares....
