Album: Camino Real Hotel

the Camino Real Ciudad de Mexico Hotel where we stayed was designed by the Mexican Architect Ricardo Legorreta and opened to the public on July 25, 1968; the exterior, including the courtyard, and the public rooms are beautiful as sculpture and architecture, and the spaces are amazingly both grand and comfortable; we had some problems with the accomodations, but that story may be for another post
