This building is identified with a whole period of Guadalajara's history. Thus, Hotel Morales is proud to affirm that bullfighting celebrities were guests here.

Outstanding figures of the Mexican politics and even The King of Soccer "Pele" stayed for the night. The Hotel Morales' Bar and the old barber's shop were the meeting places of the bullfighting milieu, where everything was merriment and comradeship.
