We stayed here last March, on our way to (and from) the Copper Canyon. Beautiful place, decent price ($700 pesos/night) right on the zocolo in El Fuerte, good restaurant, good staff. except the manager had zero personality. Seemed like a family member, stuck here managing this hotel, he looked totally bored the entire time. But, he did arrange the taxi to the rail head for the train. Read my review on the Copper Canyon in attractions to save yourself some money, and have a great experience.
