- The transaction is expected to close at the beginning of 2018.
Additionally FibraHotel and Grupo Posadas have committed to invest about Ps.60 million each to renovate public areas without closing the hotel during 2017 and 2018. Together with the recent room renovation, this will represent an investment of over Ps.400 million in the hotel in the past few years. To fund this investment as well as other projects including its property pipeline and other general corporate purposes, FibraHotel called a CBFI holders assembly to take place on September 1 st 2017. The items in the agenda will focus on, among other things, the approval of: (i) an equity shelf program of up to Ps.10,000 million, of which, (ii) Ps.4,000 million plus an overallotment option will be the first issuance of the equity program, and (iii) the acquisition of the Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun hotel.
Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun hotel has 507 full-service rooms that were recently renovated. The hotel will be operated by Grupo Posadas and FibraHotel will sign a long-term lease agreement with fixed and variable rent components. The Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun is an iconic all-inclusive five star resort hotel in a prime location with over 200m of beach front in a land plot of over 40,000m2 in the zona hotelera region of Cancun in Mexico,

Who owns Posada?
The Fantasy: Mary Colter’s Vision – Mary Colter always began designing her buildings by creating a rich fantasy about their history. She envisioned La Posada as the grand hacienda of a wealthy Spanish landowner, whose family lived here for 120 years, occasionally expanding the hotel until it finally resembled the structure we see today.
This fantasy guided every aspect of her architectural design. Mary Elizabeth Jane ColterDon Alphonso de los Pajaros walked one last time among the peacocks. The market crash of 1929 had wiped him out. La Posada, his family home for 120 years, had been sold to the Santa Fe Railway. The childless Don Alphonso whispered goodbye to the birds and old trees, to the art and the furniture, and to the memories collected by four generations of his fabled forebears watching quietly from every corner of the hacienda.
“Keep watch for me,” he murmured. The estancia had been wrested from the wilderness before there were cattle, before the steam trains shattered the stillness of the high desert, by the stubborn will of Don Pajaro’s great, great grandparents. The first Don and Dona, Spanish Basques by way of Mexico, arrived in the early 1800s with a collection of books and exotic birds in elaborate, wrought iron follies.
- They set about building La Posada as an oasis in this strange land of dancing katsina spirits and Navajos on Spanish horses courtesy of Don’s Tovar and Onate generations before.
- The oldest part of the home—the central two floors—rose like a dream adrift in a sea of wild sage.
- The second Don Pajaro grew the herd to 20,000 head, watering greedily from the headwaters of the Little Colorado all the way to Grand Falls, and added the east wing (now the dining room and railway offices) as the ranch quarters.
Here the empire prospered: Furniture was made, ranch hands bunked down, and the huge ranch kitchens produced everything from tallow candles to hides for the market at Santa Fe and for trade to the Indians. To relieve the isolation, the family traveled and collected.
The third Don fell from his horse at the age of 43, leaving the Dona to reign, queen of the painted desert, for 30 years. It was she, finally too old to travel, who sold land to the Atlantic & Pacific on the condition that their shiny trains pass the front door of La Posada and bring the world to her, a parade of steel and steam, passengers marveling at the grand hacienda on their way to fortune in California.
The fourth Don Pajaro was a man of great culture born to fabulous wealth and a million-acre ranch. He added the west wing—33 guest rooms for his friends—and built gardens that were the envy of the Arizona Territory. By 1920, the hacienda looked as it does today—72,000 square feet of wonders from around the world.
- By 1930, it was all over; everything was sold, and it was not enough.
- The Harveys, who were contracted to run the hacienda as a new hotel, promised to maintain La Posada like a proud estate.
- The guest rooms would be rented.
- Travelers would dine beneath the Pajaro’s magnificent chandeliers, seated beside the Pajaro’s patron saints—planting, cooking, and building in their fragile and forgotten innocence.
The last Don bade quiet goodbye to his staff and beloved La Posada in the early dawn, walked out the door, with nothing but the ebony cane of the first Don and two parrots perched happily on his shoulders, and was never seen again. Every spring, a flock of turkey vultures arrives, Spanish grandees in black satin, and watchfully circles until winter.
- Guests still claim to see the Don at twilight, quietly strolling the gardens in the magnificent Arizona sunset.
- Amelia Earhart A pioneering aviator and inspirational figure, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and set many other records throughout her career.
- Her disappearance in 1937 during an attempt to circumnavigate the globe devastated admirers across the United States and around the world.
Albert Einstein Albert Einstein had a passion for inquiry that eventually led him to develop the special and general theories of relativity. He won the Nobel Prize for physics for his explanation of the photoelectric effect. Einstein is generally considered the most influential physicist of the 20th century.
- Betty Grable Betty Grable started as a chorus-line dancer, honing her eventually famous legs, before moving onto the musical film.
- She later became a popular pin-up girl during World War II. The U.S.
- Treasury Department in 1946 and 1947 listed her as the highest-salaried American woman; she earned more than $3 million during her career.
Franklin D. Roosevelt Franklin D. Roosevelt became the 32nd U.S. president in 1933, and was the only president to be elected four times. Roosevelt led the United States through the Great Depression and World War II, and greatly expanded the powers of the federal government through a series of programs and reforms known as the New Deal.
John Wayne John Wayne is one of the most popular film actors of the 20th century. Wayne’s career took off in 1939, with John Ford’s Stagecoach making him an instant star. He went on to star in 142 pictures. An Academy Award-winner for True Grit in 1969, Wayne was among the top box office draws for three decades.
Q: What do all these movie stars and politicians have in common? A: They have all visited La Posada. During its heyday in the 1930s, the hotel was a favorite destination of the Hollywood jet set. Albert Einstein Alice Faye Amelia Earhart Anne Morrow Lindbergh Betty Grable Bob Hope Carole Lombard Charles Lindbergh Clark Gable Diane Keaton Dorothy Lamour Douglas Fairbanks Ed Ruscha Gary Cooper Gene Autry Governor Jane Hull Governor Janet Napolitano Grant Withers “Hopalong” Cassidy Howard Hughes Hugh Downs James Cagney James Turrell Jane Russell Jimmy Doolittle Jimmy Stewart John Huston John Wayne Lauren Hutton Lionel Barrymore Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter Mary Pickford Pola Negri President Franklin Roosevelt President Harry Truman Representative Isabella Greenway Representative J.D.
Hayworth Robert Young Roddy McDowell Sam Maloof Senator Barry Goldwater Senator John Kerry Shirley Temple The Crown Prince of Japan The Earl of Sutherland Tom Ford Victor Mature Wallace Berry Wiley Post Will Rogers La Posada embodies the visions of both Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter, the hotel’s renowned architect, and Allan Affeldt, its current owner.
But the story really begins with Fred Harvey, who “civilized the west” by introducing linen, silverware, china, crystal, and impeccable service to railroad travel. (He was so legendary that MGM made a movie called The Harvey Girls starring Judy Garland.) Harvey developed and ran all the hotels and restaurants of the Santa Fe Railway, eventually controlling a hospitality empire that spanned the continent.
- In the 1920s, Harvey decided to build a major hotel in the center of northern Arizona.
- La Posada”—the Resting Place—was to be the finest in the Southwest.
- Construction costs alone exceeded $1 million in 1929.
- Total budget with grounds and furnishings was rumored at $2 million (about $40 million in today’s dollars).
They chose Winslow, then (as now) the Arizona headquarters for the Santa Fe Railway. Winslow was ideally situated for a resort hotel since everything to see and do in northern Arizona is a comfortable day’s drive. They asked Colter to design the new hotel.
Colter worked for the Fred Harvey Company from 1905 until her retirement in the 1950s. Although famous for her magnificent buildings at the Grand Canyon, she considered La Posada her masterpiece. Here she was able to design or select everything from the structures to the landscape, furniture, maids’ costumes, and dinner china.
Many people consider this the most important and most beautiful building in the Southwest. After Its Heyday: La Posada’s Fate La Posada opened May 15, 1930, just after the stock market crash of 1929, and remained open for just 27 years. In 1957, the hotel closed to the public.
The museum-quality furnishings were auctioned off in 1959. In the early 1960s, much of the building was gutted and transformed into offices for the Santa Fe Railway. Several times over the ensuing 40 years, the building was nearly demolished, as recently as 1994 when the railway announced its plans to move out for good.
Saving a National Treasure The National Trust for Historic Preservation found out about La Posada’s peril and added it to their endangered list — where it came to the attention of Allan Affeldt. But La Posada was never for sale. Allan Affeldt purchased it from the Santa Fe Railway after learning that the property was in danger.
He visited the hotel in 1994 and decided to help local preservationists save it. This daunting task entailed negotiating for 3 years with the railroad and resolving various legal, environmental, and financial obstacles. He established La Posada LLC to take on the enormous risk and complexity of the estimated $12 million restoration.
Allan and his wife Tina Mion moved in April 1, 1997. Daniel Lutzick became the third partner and General Manager. Although none of the partners is a hotelier by training, they have accomplished what once seemed impossible—transforming a forgotten but magical place into a living museum.
- Allan oversees the overall rehabilitation—design, architecture, financing, and planning.
- Tina, a renowned artist, paints in her studio upstairs; her art is now an integral part of La Posada experience.
- Dan, a sculptor, maintains day-to-day operations of the hotel as general manager and coordinates exhibits and events.
The president of the Winslow Arts Trust, he operates Snowdrift Art Space down the street at 108 West 2nd.

How old is Fiesta Americana?
For a resort nearing its 40th year in operation, the Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta is looking good. It was evident from the moment I checked in and gazed upward at the lobby’s piece de resistance: a soaring palapa thatched roof (the second largest in Puerto Vallarta, I was told), which has been a trademark of the resort since its opening in 1980.
- Angel Sanchez, the resort’s social media manager, told me during a property tour that the palapa was painstakingly rebuilt about four years ago.
- Apparently Gaston Azcarraga Tamayo, founder of parent company Grupo Posadas, is a big fan, and thus there was practically no chance that the rebuilt roof would use an alternative material that would be easier to install and maintain.
That roof came to encapsulate my feelings about the Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta, a property that has stayed true to its roots. After all, those looking for a more contemporary vibe in Puerto Vallarta certainly have options: for example, Grupo Posadas’ very own, adults-only Grand Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta, which opened in 2015 about a half-hour drive south.
- Still, the 291-room Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta is not some stuck-in-time relic.
- Along with general repairs and upkeep, the property continually rolls out upgrades to offer guests the expected modern amenities.
- For example, the property started life as a European Plan property before switching to an all-inclusive model in 2013, and today, guests have access to five a la carte restaurants.
I had dinner at the Italian venue, L’Isola, on my first night, sampling grilled shrimp wrapped in prosciutto. The next night I dined at Tiantang, which serves Thai, Indian and Chinese dishes as well as sushi. I opted for shrimp pad thai and a spicy tuna roll.
Breakfast was at the recently renovated Chulavista, an international/Mexican buffet venue, perfect for those guests who might want pozole along with pancakes or a side of chilaquiles with their corn flakes (I’m among them). A lunch highlight was the beachfront La Cevicheria, which in addition to its namesake ceviches serves grilled items and Mexican seafood classics.
I ordered Baja-style shrimp tacos and, as a suite guest, was entitled to seating closest to the beach. (This might not be ideal for those who’d rather avoid sales pitches from the souvenir vendors walking past, though most of them weren’t especially pushy.) The living room of one of the resort’s presidential suites, which can accommodate up to six guests. Photo Credit: TW Photo by Eric Moya Of course, I could have opted for 24-hour room service in my presidential suite, measuring nearly 2,600 square feet and featuring two bathrooms; a living room with widescreen TV; a bedroom with an exceptionally comfortable, king-size bed (and another widescreen TV); and enough balcony space to rival many standard guestrooms.
The suite can be furnished with rollaway beds to accommodate up to six guests. It was a lot of space for one guest, but I did try to make the most of it, having lunch one afternoon at the eight-seat alfresco dining table offering views of old Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas. At night, the suite’s heavy, engraved wood doors and thick stucco walls no doubt helped to keep noise to a minimum; in fact, I can’t recall hearing much of anything save for the crashing waves nine stories below.
Similarly serene is the Nakawe Spa, where I enjoyed an hourlong deep-tissue massage. Facilities include seven treatment rooms (including a couples room with private hot tub), a sauna and a relaxation pool. The relaxation pool at the Nakawe Spa at the Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta. In my suite and elsewhere on property, I was pleasantly surprised by the robust WiFi. According to Sanchez, it was upgraded this year to accommodate the demands of video streaming and smart TVs.
(During my hosted weekend stay, I was able to download huge photos and log on to the servers at Travel Weekly to edit some articles — I hope your clients are considerably less productive, but I imagine Netflix will work fine.) Another nod to the modern vacationer is the rooftop Sonne Club, where guests can enjoy specialty cocktails and other refreshments while taking in bay views from the infinity pool or one of nine cabanas, which are equipped with daybeds, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and minibars.
Access to the Sonne Club is complimentary for guests of the eighth and ninth floors, while other guests can pay about $10 for admission. The Sonne Club was part of a recent round of renovations, but the work continues. According to a Fiesta Americana representative, the property recently completed refurbs to rooms on the seventh and eighth floors, and renovations of ninth-floor guestrooms are underway; lobby renovations will follow soon thereafter.
- It’s all business as usual for this property, where continual improvements are key to keeping up with Puerto Vallarta’s evolving hotel scene.
- Sanchez told me that about a third of the resort’s clientele are return guests, some of whom stay there two or three times a year.
- That sort of loyalty leads me to believe that whatever hospitality trends make their way to Puerto Vallarta, there will always be a place for the Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta, thanks to its solid foundation — and the palapa overhead.
The Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta is a quick drive from the airport (my ride took less than 10 minutes in Friday night traffic) and about two miles from downtown Puerto Vallarta (cab rides averaged about $6). Standard rooms start at $180 per night; presidential suites start at $450 per night.

Who created Posadas?
History of Las Posadas – Now a widely-celebrated tradition throughout Latin America, there is evidence that Las Posadas originated in colonial Mexico. The Augustinian friars of San Agustin de Acolman, near Mexico City, are believed to have organized the first posadas.
In 1586, Friar Diego de Soria, the Augustinian prior, obtained a papal bull from Pope Sixtus V to celebrate what was called ‘Misas de Aguinaldo’ or ‘Christmas bonus masses’ between December 16 and 24. The tradition seems to be one of many examples of how the Catholic religion in Mexico was adapted to make it easier for the indigenous people to understand and blend with their earlier beliefs.
The Aztecs had a tradition of honoring their god Huitzilopochtli at the same time of year, coinciding with the winter solstice. The Posada celebrations were originally held in the church but the custom spread. Later it was celebrated in haciendas, and then in family homes, gradually taking the form of the celebration as it is now practiced by the time of the 19th century.
- Now, neighborhood committees often organize the posadas and a different family will offer to host the celebration each night.
- The other people in the neighborhood bring food, candy, and piñatas so that the costs of the party don’t fall only on the host family.
- Adults, including musicians, follow the procession, which visits selected homes and asks for lodging for Joseph and Mary.
Traditionally, the procession is always refused lodging, though the hosts often provide refreshments. At each stop, passages of scripture are read and Christmas carols are sung. Mass is held each day after the procession and, after the service, children break open piñatas filled with candy, toys, and occasionally money.
What is Posada famous for?
José Guadalupe Posada, (born Feb.2, 1851, Aguascalientes, Mex.—died Jan.20, 1913, Mexico City), printmaker whose works, often expressionistic in content and style, were influential in the development of 20th-century graphic art, As a child, Posada worked as a farm labourer and in a pottery factory.
- He taught school for a short time and then began to draw, inspired largely by posters for the Rea Circus.
- Gradually he was attracted to printmaking,
- He became a kind of pictorial journalist with the publication of thousands of broadside illustrations and popular book and song covers.
- He is perhaps best known for his animated skeletons ( calaveras ).
Most of his works were engraved or etched in relief on type metal, A museum dedicated to his work is located in Aguascalientes. This article was most recently revised and updated by Kathleen Kuiper,
Is a Posada religious?
Las Posadas, (Spanish: “The Inns”) religious festival celebrated in Mexico and some parts of the United States between December 16 and 24. Las Posadas commemorates the journey that Joseph and Mary made from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of a safe refuge where Mary could give birth to the baby Jesus,
- When they were unable to find lodging in Bethlehem, Joseph and Mary were forced to seek shelter in a stable, where the Christ Child was born.
- Las Posadas is celebrated in cities and towns across Mexico.
- Each evening during the festival, a small child dressed as an angel leads a procession through the streets of the town.
The procession is primarily made up of children dressed in silver and gold robes carrying lit candles and images of Mary and Joseph riding a donkey. Adults, including musicians, follow the procession, which visits selected homes and asks for lodging for Joseph and Mary.
- Traditionally, the procession is always refused lodging, though the hosts often provide refreshments.
- At each stop, passages of scripture are read and Christmas carols are sung.
- Mass is held each day after the procession, and, at the conclusion of the service, children break open piñatas filled with candy, toys, and, occasionally, money.
The piñatas are usually crafted in the form of a star, which is said to have guided the three wise men of biblical tradition to the newborn Jesus. The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica This article was most recently revised and updated by Adam Augustyn,
