Travelers have more options with a growing selection of mid-range hotels
Benefits of mid-price hotels can include attractive prices and amenities such as free breakfast, free in-room WiFi, loyalty programs with major hoteliers and the security of brand recognition.
Aloft Cancun is a new option that opened this year in the Hotel Zone close to Playa Marlin Beach, multiple shopping centers and the Cancun Center convention facility. This 177-room hotel is part of Starwood’s W-inspired Aloft Brand, and features a hip, social atmosphere for prices as low as $89 per night.
A bit off the main strip of the Hotel Zone is the Holiday Inn Express Cancun Zona Hotelera, located in a quiet residential neighborhood with proximity to the Pok-ta-Pok golf course. The hotel is not on the beach, but does have a swimming pool, and room rates start at $87 per night.
