      This is a truly original, almost museum-like hotel. Each floor was created by a different internationally-renowned architect, Jean Nouvel bagging the 12th and top floor. Basically, this is 12 hotels in one! The Silken Puerta America is the only hotel of its kind in the world and really should be tried at least once for a truly original experience, even 12 times to try all the different concepts! An upmarket establishment which is rather expensive and caters for a business clientele, located near the airport but away from the town centre.
