In the area where the hotel was built, which in its construction includes an old façade that was conserved (most of it by Cárcel Street and another by Prado), once stood the old hotel Biscuit, inaugurated in 1911 and that in 1931 acquired the name of Packard, alluding to the American brand of automobiles.
The opening of this emblematic building coincides with the preparations for the 500th Anniversary of the founding of Havana, and the 25 years of presence in Cuba of Iberostar Hotels & Resorts. (With information from Prensa Latina).
