Art Nouveau landmark steeped in Old World elegance and located right on Mexico City’s famous Zocalo
From the Fin de siècle illuminated Tiffany stained glass ceiling designed by French artisan Jacques Gruber to the Louis XV-style chandelier hanging in the entrance, this grande dame is pure Art Nouveau decadence. Travel in the turn-of-the-century iron cage elevators to one of 60 rooms bursting with old-school touches like striped wallpaper, ornately-carved headboards, and velvet-covered footstools. Not everything’s a time-warp though: there’s a well-equipped 24 hour gym and high speed WiFi. The 5th floor Terazza bar has commanding views over the Zocalo.
