Glamour, elegance, style and, above all, a strong commitment to the history, are some of the features that characterize the Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico.
Built between 1895 and 1899, it was opened on September 2, 2009, by President Porfirio Diaz, as a market center that is distinguished by being the first department store in the country. In 1959, the market center closed and in 1968 became the Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico, which later closed in 2002 to be remodeled and so was reopened in 2005.
Regardless of its 60 luxurious rooms and 11 meeting rooms for performing all kinds of social facilities, the hotel itself is a haven for history and art.
