Lonely Planet review
The Plaza has the potential to be an illustrious frontrunner on the hotel scene, but rather like the photogenic Buicks that chug asthmatically around the streets outside, its elegant facade is only half the story. Erected in 1908, this hotel sports the restaurant Los Portales, tiled marble floors and a rather fancy lobby. But step upstairs to one of the 188 rooms and, more often than not, you’ll find damp bedding, windows that don’t open properly and curtains hanging off the railings. A cheaper hotel could get away with it, but this place has delusions of grandeur.
