lHG (InterContinental Hotels Group), one of the world’s largest hotel companies, and Grupo Presidente announce the opening of the Presidente InterContinental Santa Fe in Mexico City. The tallest building in the area, the Presidente InterContinental Santa Fe offers stunning views of the Santa Fe area, the Valley of Mexico and the Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl volcanoes.
