Hotel Camino Real – Mexico City

 

If you like architecture and great design the hotel “Camino Real” is one of the coolest places to stay in México City.

 

Strategically located in the exclusive financial and commercial zone of Polanco and very close to the Bosque de Chapultepec and from the Rufino Tamayo, Anthropology and History, and Modern Art Museums, and from Chapultepec Castle, a few steps away from beautiful and traditional  Paseo de la Reforma avenue, Camino Real Polanco México is a refuge from the city´s busy life.

 

Built in an attractive architectonic style, and imagined as a hotel-museum by Architect Ricardo Legorreta, the Camino Real Polanco México Hotel opened to the public on July 25, 1968, combining modern architectural profiles with obvious pre-Hispanic pyramid reminiscences. It has been the headquarters for two soccer world cups and for the Olympic Games, as well as for more than 210 official visits from presidents and members of the monarchy from around the world.

It's amazing when you see something so modern that has been around for more than 40 years!

Ivan, however did you handle coming to BC and all of our grey light? These shots are stunning, and of course, ultra modern and playful...I so love hospitality design anyway, but the light struck me as so clean in these pics.

Best,
Michelle

Very nice. I love the vibrant colours. Often hotels lack personality because they lack colour trying to appeal to too many people. But I think a pink and yellow cow will make almost anyone smile!

Ivan,

Pure, clear and bright full of light. The people make a space come alive through their presence while there and their invisible finger prints left when they have left the space.

No matter where you've gone to you always leave a part of you behind. Beautiful snaps.
