Gran Hotel de la Ciudad de México

Av. 16 de Septiembre 82, at 5 de Febrero, Mexico City, Quintana Roo, 06000, Mexico

Ensconced in a former 19th-century department store, this hotel in the very center of the city has rooms furnished in an updated traditional style with floral bedspreads, stately brass-tack furnishings, and modern striped wall coverings. The distinctive belle epoque lobby—with a striking Parisian stained-glass dome from Jacque Graber's workshop, chandeliers, gilded birdcages, and 19th-century wrought-iron elevators—is worth a visit in its own right. The Terrace breakfast restaurant overlooks the Zócalo.
