BlogAmigos, I picked this jewel of a hotel because of its history and grandeur. Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico, is very special. Not because it's the priciest ( it isn't), but because it is wonderfully located, small and personalised. AND - this is important - it is right on the magnificent square, in front of the Presidential Palace. The Revolution rages on in Meh-ico ( as locals call it), as protestors camp out in the square and raise slogans all day and half the night.
These images show the hotel in all its splendour. Please note the magnificent Tiffany-style roof ( believed to be the largest such in the world), and the ancient Art Deco elevator ( which works)! The massive chandelier at the entrance dazzles all those who walk in.... and I sure am glad we did!!
