Elegant GhostsThe roaring twenties came roaring back at me as I crossed the threshold of the Gran Hotel. Pasta tile floors, a grand split staircase, intricately carved wooden doors, lofty ceilings, crystal chandeliers, open airy spaces. I could hardly believe it was only 800 pesos (That's about 70 bucks US) a night.
Ghosts? Most certainly. I think I saw one sweep across the room just as I entered. I am almost sure she was dancing.
The site of movie sets, photo shoots, and the playground of the rich and famous, this beautifully refinished hotel will whisk you away into what feels like a Mexican Gone With The Wind. And as you close your eyes and drift off to sleep you may just catch a glimpse of a full and brightly colored skirt swirl by.
