The Habana Hilton was built in 1958 when Cuba was a tropical playground for the West. At the time it was Latin America's tallest and largest hotel. Apart from the numerous guest rooms and suites, the complex contained an elegant casino, six restaurants and bars, rooftop bar, huge ballroom, convention facilities, an exclusive shopping arcade and outdoor pool and cabanas. The couturier, Anna was based at the hotel to produce eye-catching wardrobes for well-heeled tourists. The Habana Hilton traded until 1960 when Fidel Castro nationalised the property and renamed the hotel.
