History and architecture
The Fairmont Acapulco Princess was designed in 1971 by William Rudolph and Leonides Guadarrama, as an ancient Aztec pyramid just a few meters away from The Fairmont Pierre Marques; in the summer of 1982 a third tower was added.
In 1998 Canadian Pacific Hotels purchased the Princess Hotels situated in Mexico, Arizona, Bermuda and Barbados; and during October 1999 the administrators of the company signed an agreement with Fairmont Hotels, creating the company Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.
The Fairmont Acapulco Princess hotel sits on over 161 acres (0.65 km2) of gardens with palms framing the view of the Sierra Madre in the Acapulco Diamante area. Built in the form of an ancient Aztec pyramid, the hotel contains 1,017 rooms.
The resort features four freshwater pools with waterfalls and one saltwater pool, all overlooking Revolcadero Beach; a golf course; and eight outdoor and two indoor tennis courts.
