The majestic Grand Hotel Costa Rica has joined the Choice International and Real Hotels & Resorts chain. Located in San Jose, near to some of the most popular Costa Rica tourist attractions, such as monuments, theatres and museums, the architecture and faÃ§ade of this classical building is notable between the hotels in San Jose. This traditional and well-known place has changed its name to “Grand Hotel Costa Rica an Ascend Collection Hotel”.
With this international business Alliance, the hotel renovates its image and become the first hotel of this chain in Latin America. This the only establishment in its kind declared as a Historical – Architectural landmark by the Costa Rican Government. To start with changes the exterior facade has being painted, besides some other renovations inside the building.
Since 1930, this hotel has been the favorite place to have a quiet moment into the heart of the Capital city for thousands of visitors who prefer to stay some days in the city, and to enjoy different guided tours through San Jose.
The cultural square in downtown San Jose, where this elegant hotel is located, is also one of the most visited places because here is the National Theatre in one corner, and the Pre- Columbian Gold Museum in the other one, two important Costa Rica attractions visited by thousands of travelers each year, whose travel vacations packages normally include photography tours through the city.
This historical hotel has different high quality services to visitors who come to rest and enjoy their vacations. But also it has all facilities for business meetings, conferences, conventions, and similar events if it is required.
Ascend Collection is a franchise which forms part of Choice Hotels and Real Hotels and Resorts, owners of the “Hotel Intercontinental”, one of the most important Costa Rica hotels. Both the Choice and Real chains have more than six thousand of establishments around the world. This is a foreign mark for boutique style, historic, and unique hotels.
To keep the required, high quality standards, the renovated hotel invested more than $1 million in infrastructure, rooms, and furniture. This change was made effective from last December 15th.
