Elegantly elatable caged air

The Gran Hotel Cuidad de Mexico was once a department store. With its finely wrought  Elevador, the second in the city, and its Tiffany stained glass ceiling,  it is quintessentially fancy Victoriana. The feeling of an overly large boudoir gains some traction with those red velvet sofas in the Lobby.  The floral filigree metal detail and pretty ceiling must have incited some serious spending as the 20th century set off for somewhere lofty.
