Mexico City was the heart of the entire Aztec empire!
The current Zócalo is built where Montezuma's Palace was discovered 30 years ago.
You will discover the impressive remains of the Aztec City and the Great Temple and its museum, which sits on the northeast corner of the Zocalo. Next to the Aztec’s Great Temple are the 400-year-old Cathedral and the National Palace. While enjoying the walk you will visit historic buildings constructed hundreds of years ago in a European architectural style.
Many say that Mexico City itself is a living museum with over 2,000 historical buildings, most of them immediately surrounding the Zocalo. Today, Mexico City is the center of business, culture, and government for the country.
The Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Hotel has a rich history of its own, with a three-year building restoration supervised by the National Museum of Anthropology and History and the National Museum of Fine Arts.
For the restoration, a group of stonemasons, painters, and other artisans meticulously restored the building’s original elements including the unique façade, Talavera-tiled walls, ironwork, handrails, and moldings. Today you can best experience it all while using our modern glass elevators that travel past the magnificent stained-glass ceiling to a rooftop garden terrace – an oasis within downtown Mexico City.
We invite you to experience the history and culture of one of the world’s most majestic cities at the Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton.
