Plane Spotting Mexico City

Camino Reale Hotel
Is located next to the terminal building at Mexico City. The hotel has it’s own swimming pool and fitness centre and is considered high quality. The hotels Steakhouse is expensive but serves top quality steaks, cheaper food can be found in the many food outlets located in the terminal, only a short walk away.
Location: *** Perfect location. The hotel is connected to the terminal building by pedestrian bridge.
Spotting: *** Excellent. The picture below is from the 8th floor room number 8150 which overlooks the airfield. This was almost ideal except for a gantry/tower which was slightly blocking the view of the Mil ramp, so suggest probably a lower number like 8140 might avoid this. Views of the threshold, the landing traffic and across to the south side maintenance areas were good and most residents could be read off easily with pole and x 50 bins.
Photos: ** Shots are possible, however the fact that the windows are tinted and most of the day you are into sun makes high standard shots difficult.
Value: ** Good value, rooms can be booked from £70 a night off peak times.
Book:
