Devastation at the Hotel Where My Parents Spent Their Honeymoon In Acapulco

This was the lobby of the Princess Hotel in Acapulco. Note the exposed infrastructure at upper right. 
My guess is that the hotel will have to be rebuilt. The Princess has always been the pride of Acapulco. In 1951, my Dad didn't have that much money but he was absolutely determined to do well by his new bride.

I do not know if the building at upper right was bent by the storm.

We now have photos of what the ground-level damage looks like. Frankly, it looks much like the destruction from a strong tornado than a hurricane. Think of Hurricane Andrew in Homestead only a slightly stronger storm.
