Havana is having its 500th annversay on 2019 and the city is getting ready with a series of changes and renovations in buildings, squares and hotels.
Iberostar Grand Packard is part of this movement too and it’s already a new icon in Havana. They invite me to know this hotel first hand and I want to share with you the whole experience.
Iberostar Grand Packard, an icon in Havana
Located in Havana’s Paseo Del Prado and in between Capitolio and Malecón, Iberostar Grand Packard is very conveniently located.
The building was previously the Biscuit hotel and the company decided to keep one of the façades as decoration, creating a perfect balance between traditional and modern architecture.
The name Grand Packard comes from the classical Packard cars and they use this car brand’s font throughout the property. Plus, they keep in the parking one Packard Clipper dated from 1942. It’s the same car Al Capone used to travel with and there are only 5 left in the world.
The views from the rooms and the swimming pool are stunning. From there it’s possible to see malecón, Castillo del Morro, Paseo Del Prado and partially, the Capitolio.
Rooms & Suites
I was staying in a junior suite in the 9th floor, with perfect views to Havana’s sunsets.
