Grand Fiesta Americana Oaxaca

Contemporary Mexican design

Oaxaca de Juárez earned a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List for serving as a beacon of cultural heritage in Southern Mexico with an array of traditions, artisan crafts, natural wonders and ancestral history. The 144-room Grand Fiesta Americana Oaxaca sits in the city’s center, just steps away from all the main attractions.

The urban getaway embraces the nature of the colonial city and its unique history through contemporary Mexican architecture fused with tradition. The spaces celebrate the hotel’s locale through local wood, stone, clay pottery, upholstery and regional crafts, including a hanging alebrije (colorful Mexican folk art sculptures) installation at the entrance.

The hotel’s horizontal design features interior patios that allow for natural lighting in all areas. The design offers a modern reinterpretation of an ancient landscape with the latest amenities for added comfort. La Distral restaurant and Agave Lounge further interpret regionality through cuisine and libations, respectively. Nabane Spa utilizes the therapeutic properties of ancient therapies in its unique wellness menu.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • An array of indoor gardens offers seamless indoor-outdoor living, allowing you to enjoy a nature oasis in the city's center. The central courtyard is a nod to the nearby Jardín Etnobotánico, featuring endemic species from Oaxaca, cacti from Tonalá and a wall teeming with greenery from Teotitlán del Valle.
  • La Distral is an excellent example of local Oaxacan cuisine. It highlights regional specialties in a space decorated with carved wood figures. Mexican chef Gerardo Rivera, a member of the Mexican delegation of L'Académie Culinaire de France, directs the culinary experience.

The offerings include well-known attractions and lesser-known destinations, including the fascinating Centro de las Artes de San Agustin (the first ecological arts center in Latin America), 30 minutes from the city proper.
