Hotel Demetria, Guadalajara
“There is a saying that if you can make a business successful in Guadalajara, you can make it successful anywhere,” says Hotel Demetria owner and architect, Iván Cordero of his hometown. Sandwiched between two historic houses—Luis Barragán’s Casa Franco and Pedro Castellanos Casa Quiñones—Hotel Demetria, Cordero’s first building, is part of his larger effort to preserve Guadalajara’s architectural history and instill a sense of “social conscience in tourists and locals.”
