Romantic enough for a honeymoon or anniversary celebration is La Casa Rosada (tel. 504/651-4324, www.lacasarosada.com , US$145 s/d), catering to luxury-lovers with tasteful wood and rattan furnishings, and amenities such as showers that boast a steam function (complete with stools to sit on), as well as music speakers, a pillow menu, and artwork by renowned Honduran artists such as Pito Perez. Rooms 3 and 5 have windows on the doors for peek-a-boo views of the hills when unshuttered. Rates include breakfast (usually served in the small courtyard) and a courtesy drink 6–7 p.m. each day.
While there isn’t a restaurant, the hotel can arrange for food to be brought in for lunch or dinner. One room on the ground floor has been accommodated for wheelchair access. Room 1 is slightly smaller and has the bathroom outside (although just two steps outside of the room, and behind a wall, so not within view of anyone else); it costs US$87 per night.
The best-known hotel in downtown Copán Ruinas  is Hotel Marina Copán (tel. 504/651-4070 or 504/651-4071, www.hotelmarinacopan.com , US$93 s, US$104 d). The 50 rooms in the attractive, one-level, colonial-style building feature dark-wood furniture and paneling, and a few have terraces and peaceful gardens out back—well worth requesting. Among the hotel amenities are a swimming pool, a sauna and gym, a bar, and a good restaurant. Hotel service is very good, although the rooms themselves are on the simple side given the price.
