Loro de Oro Inn: Located at Constitución #622, just a half block from the
Plazuela Machado in the central part of downtown, this gorgeous Inn has the
charm of old Mexico and all the modern conveniences. The three story main
building was built in January 2004. This Colonial style Inn is much more inti-
mate and personal than a hotel. It has a breathtaking tropical courtyard with
swimming pool, lounge chairs, barbecue, and dining area. There are two large
Luxury Bungalow suites that the owner offers for rent on a "different" long-term
basis. You pay $1,495 U.S. and receive one week of your choice for five years, and
do not pay a maintenance charge. I don't see how you can get a better deal than
$300 U.S. per week in such luxury in El Centro area! Jr. Studios rent for $35 U.S.
per night or $20 U.S. per night by the month. Deluxe studios rent for $45 U.S.
per night or $27 U.S. per night by the month. The Luxury Bungalow suites rent
for $85 U.S. per night or $1500 U.S. per month. Tony Feuer, the owner men-
tioned that "since this is Mexico, prices are negotiable." For further information
