Fiesta Americana Viaducto Aeropuerto
Located in the Ixtacalco area of Mexico City, Fiesta Americana Viaducto Aeropuerto is situated in an ideal area with easy access to the Foro Sol stadium, Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez race track and the Palacio de Bellas Artes, the cultural center of the city. The five-star hotel has 260 guest rooms, a restaurant, private parking, a fitness center and a bar.
The hotel utilizes resource-efficient design features and technologies to reduce its environmental impact and save on operating costs. External shading devices, LED lighting and an energy-efficient air conditioning system reduce the building’s energy use, while low-flow showerheads, dual flush water closets and water-efficient faucets reduce the building’s water use.
The hotel is a member of the Fiesta Americana hotel chain, owned by FibraHotel. Fiesta Americana Viaducto Aeropuerto is one of 86 hotels owned by FibraHotel, a Mexican company that develops, acquires, owns and operates hotels across Mexico. The company is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its hotels using resource-saving practices that also help improve operational expenditures. FibraHotel’s Fiesta Satélite hotel and AC by Marriott Veracruz have also received EDGE certification.
Fiesta Americana Viaducto Aeropuerto has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
