Puebla: City of Angels
BY ANA LANCZYNER
Most would be surprised to learn that in Mexico we have our very own city of angels; Puebla obtained this angelical nickname due to the perfectly aligned historical downtown area which is said to be designed by angles. Located in the center of the country, Puebla is just a two-hour drive away from Mexico City and totally worth visiting. This city is bursting with a fusion of prehispanic heritage and colonial architecture that is palpable in every corner and savored in every dish. There is much to say about Puebla’s role in Mexican history but what you should know from the get go is that its historic district is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is where the real 5 de mayo battle happened, and the famous chocolate based savory sauce called mole was originated in this area.
Just like every major city in Mexico, Puebla also has a duality which allows visitors and locals to enjoy the rich historic treasures of the past alongside a modern city. Puebla in particular has recently had a series of serious infrastructure development with a world-class convention center, museums, and of course a hefty hotel selection to go with it. Our Grand Fiesta Americana Puebla Angelópolis located in the famous Angelopolis district is an example of the development this city has seen in the past decade. This modern yet very green district is home to some of the country’s best restaurants and shopping malls where visitors are sure to find much more than meets the eye. You may also decide on one Puebla Angelópolis, located at Plaza One in the Periférico-Ecológico. If you want to enjoy some of the best views of the city, Angelopolis is where most of the high-rise buildings are located. However, if you feel like taking panoramic views to the next level, you can also visit the famous cable car attraction in the Los Fuertes historic district and enjoy a wider view from there.
Surrounded by luxurious skyscrapers, the Grand Fiesta Americana appeals to the city’s most sophisticated crowd with its marble floors, contemporary spaces and unmatched location. There is much more to this property than just a leisurely stay – because even if you are in town for business, the rooms in this hotel embrace you with their soothing resort like feel. For those looking for a relaxing wind down after a long day, the Wellness Center located inside the property has a menu of massages and treatments that will have you revitalized in no time. If that doesn’t do the trick, you can always take a dip the elevated outdoor swimming pool that is embellished with a panoramic view of the city skyline and a majestic green wall.
At the Grand Fiesta Americana we are proud to share an exclusive Grand Club Lounge with our guests where you can sustain a small business meeting, hang out before or after meetings or simply stop by to shave a cup of coffee. WiFi is complementary throughout the entire hotel so you can feel free to set up in any of our indoor or outdoor spaces to catch up on emails or simply scroll. Days will run smooth and nights will taste better paired with the elegant cuisine of Barro Azul. The hotel restaurant is a celebration of ingredients that are traditionally found in the central region of the country. The careful menu was created by Cheff Iván Pérez which brings the opulent personality of Puebla to life. You may also visit the perfect spot, Sky Bar a vibrant space that offer panoramic views and a chic atmosphere.
