Our Base: The Fairmont Acapulco Princess

fairmont

The Acapulco International Center, site of Tianguis Turistico 33, is located about 25 minutes away from where we stayed for our coverage of the Mexico tradeshow. The thought of tedious shuttles and expensive cab rides gave us pause, but once we saw our hotel, we exhaled.

The Fairmont Acapulco Princess has been described as Acapulco’s best hotel, and after five minutes in our Partial Oceanfront View Room, we saw why. Our room, #1441, cost about $170 a night and is about three times the size of an average hotel room, with a kitchen area and living area with two couches. The balcony wraps around the room and offers a great view of Revolcadero Beach. After shuttling back and forth from the hotel to downtown Acapulco, the difference between the Fairmont Acapulco Princess’ location and the rest of this destination became clear. Downtown felt more American with the likes of McDonalds, Planet Hollywood and Hard Rock Café. When we got back to the property, it felt like another part of town. The hotel is quiet and secluded and is perfect for couples and business travelers looking to get away from the chaos of downtown. The Fairmont Acapulco Princess was definitely a pleasant surprise and we recommend it to agents booking clients who want an authentic Mexico feel when visiting Acapulco.
