The Auto Hotel Ritz has been near the Costera Alemán at its mid-bay location for nearly 60 years. It was last modernized in 2002. Not to be confused with the Ritz Acapulco, which is just a hundred yards away towards the beach, the Auto Hotel Ritz provides comfortable accommodations at budget prices. Being close to the main shopping areas, to Acapulco’s favorite beaches, and also to the traditional area of Acapulco, the Auto Hotel Ritz serves both the interests of tourists and business travelers. Its 81 rooms on 6 floors are modern and comfortable. The beach is only 200 yards away, and the hotel provides its guests with a beach club there. The Auto Hotel Ritz is across a side street from the Gran Plaza shopping mall, and just a block from Acapulco’s Parque Papagayo.
