Puebla Travel Guide
The cathedral of Puebla, Mexico.
The very near future for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is rosy indeed. The group already has 18 luxury properties in 11 countries, with another 11 under development, including this latest one—Rosewood Puebla Mexico, opening in 2016.
The downtown area of Puebla was designated a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1987, because of it’s plentitude of historical sites such as Cholula, which is the site of the world’s largest pyramid. Puebla is also famous for its plentitude of churches (over 365) and for creating one of Mexico’s national dishes, mole poblano.
Here’s what’s in store for the Rosewood Puebla, which will be located near Zocalo, the city’s main square.
The latest in a string of achingly trendy Mexican hotels, La Purificadora is the Habita group's first property in Puebla, near Monterrey. The syndicate's other properties have opened in what are arguably more jet set locations, like Cancun and Mexico City, but that isn't stopping them from bringing trendy design and a party-focused scene to Northern Mexico.
With an open-air lobby, glassed-in pool and rooftop bar, the place stays busy, with music pumping until late, reviewer Tara Fitzgerald reports. Despite the noise, the hit-or-miss service, "patchy" WiFi and shoddy room construction, she declares the Purificadora worth a stay:
[It's] a cool alternative for design-savvy travelers who aren't sticklers for service.
Guess its great location in the heart of town--and at the convention center--makes up for all the miscues.
