Honduras, Part 3-A stay at the Hilton Princess, San Pedro Sula
I have always liked the Hilton Princess San Pedro Sula hotel since I first saw hit. Seems like an oasis in the middle of a lot of the hustle-bustle of San Pedro Sula. Here’s a pic:
As I mentioned in my first blog, I had met the General Manager, Mr. Javier Ortega, on a previous trip to Honduras. I had eaten breakfast at the hotel and he was gracias enough to give me a tour of the city. I felt the least I could do was stay at his hotel the next time I came to San Pedro Sula. I always try to pay back the hospitality when I can.
I was going to be traveling by bus the next day, going 3 hours to the west to Copan Ruinas, and needed a good night’s rest. I booked a room on the concierge floor, which included complimentary beverages, snacks, a delicious breakfast, computer usage, etc. The people that work on the concierge floor are very friendly and accommodating. Here is a look at the special dining room on the floor:
The hotel front desk was very willing to help me with money exchange, directions, lining up a driver the first afternoon, and in general, just making sure I felt secure.
I think the best way I can show the hotel is through a series of photos. So, here goes.
All in all, I was very pleased with the Hilton Princess. All very polite and nice people that work there. I highly recommend it if you are going to be in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
Ok, enough of the hotel pics. Time to start seeing the city of San Pedro Sula. I had been warned before about walking the streets alone. Stay tuned…………….
