Dear Mr. Hunt. My father, Antonio Fernandez Prieto, was the original owner of the Gran Hotel since 1938 until The Instituto Nacional de Turismo took over. I do not know a-) if you want additional Information - I will answer any questions you may have.
also b-) I wanted to know if it would be possible to get high resolution files of the photos you have in your website. They would be very much appreciated. They would be used to show my family.
Thank you for having taken the time to do this. It was quite a great feeling to see the hotel once again. - Incidentally, My father also had the Hotel Colon in Camaguey and the Sevilla in Ciego de Avila.
He also had other ones in Havana, including the Lincoln Hotel. Are you operating from Europe? - Please let me know - Thank you again, Mario F. Fernandez
