Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico

The art nouveau Gran Hotel occupies a central location overlooking Mexico City's historic Zocalo. There are 60 rooms and a rooftop terrace with views of the Government Palace and Mexico City's Cathedral.

President Porfirio Diaz opened the building as a trading centre in 1899 and the impressive Tiffany stained glass atrium ceiling for which the hotel is famous was added in 1908. The building became a hotel in 1968 when Mexico hosted the Olympics.
