Monterrey is the third largest city in Mexico, and one of the main business centres in Latin America. For these reasons, the modern capital of the State of Nuevo Leon has an impressive hotel infrastructure, with multiple lodging options for cosmopolitan business people who come to close a deal or to take part in one of the many congresses taking place in its metropolitan area.
70 percent of the visitors coming to the "City of the Mountains" do it for business reasons; they stay at any of the more than 80 hotels of international class located in six zones: North (at 20 minutes from downtown), Airport (at 25 minutes from downtown), South (at 5 minutes from downtown), Fundidora (at 5 minutes from downtown), Del Valle (at 10 minutes from downtown) and Hotelera (in the Historic Centre).
The largest lodging offer is concentrated in the last zone; it offers about two thousand rooms and more than 80 meeting rooms with a 12 hundred people-capacity each. An additional attraction is its closeness to the centres of entertainment of Monterrey, where the best cafés, restaurants and nightclubs are located.
Another interesting business face that reveals the city is on its varied convention centres, which can accommodate up to 6000 people each. Located in strategic places within the metropolis, these centres have a modern infrastructure capable of satisfying the needs of the most demanding business people.
