Copper Canyon: Posada del Hidalgo

Posada del Hidalgo

This hotel occupies a converted colonial mansion overlooking the town of el Fuerte, close to the station on the Copper Canyon railway. The original residence, which cost a fortune to construct using redwood pines brought down from Canada, was built over a period of 10 years by an influential mayor and grandee.

The elegant, arched property is set within a beautiful flowery garden dotted with fruit trees and hosting a swimming pool.  Guest accommodation  -  there are 70 simple rooms  decorated differentially with pastel and ochre colours, some with  wrought iron bedsteads and others with beamed ceilings – is built in five separate buildings each with its own patio.

The old part of the hotel - La Casa Vieja - was supposedly built on the site where El Zorro was born (interested guests can request to stay in the Zorro Room) and there is a statue of him in the grounds. There is also a restaurant serving regional cuisine.
