MARQUIS LOS CABOS is part of the Marquis Hotels family, three generations have shared ideas and created an ambiance defined by its Mexican hospitality, where each Guest and Employee enjoys life, work, business & leisure. Above all, we have set a unique example in the Luxury industry.
Marquis Hotel is a “Home” away from home rather than a Hotel. We strive to give the best personalized service and attention to detail. For us everything is important, your emotions, your feelings, especially anything we can do to make your stay a more pleasant one. With that same philosophy, we talk with our Employees and through their passion for details, they enhance every Guest’s experience.
The Architecture and décor represent the destination where each hotel is located. Marquis Los Cabos features its lobby as the famous Arch of Los Cabos, Marquis Reforma feature the Aztec God statues as their ancestors and heart of Mexico City.
Marquis Hotels area a dream come true and we are very proud to share this with all of our Guests.
To sum up, I would like to explain how and why we chose Marquis as the brand name. Marquis represents the finest cut in a diamond. Very hard to achieve, but when you do, it lasts forever. Obviously now, there are several “Marquis” in the world, we do not really know who came first, what we do know is that we conceptualized the idea without knowing it existed and to us what matters is the meaning and the reason of the choice.
BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR AND LOS CABOS
Los Cabos is a municipality located at the tip of Baja California, Mexico. It encompasses the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, as well as the Resort Corridor that lies between the two. The area’s economy, like many resort areas in Mexico, was based on fishing but is now geared towards tourism, though sport fishing is one of the area’s main attractions.
The municipality had a population of over 160,000 inhabitants according to the 2005 census. It has an area of 3,451.51 km_(1,332.635 sq. mi.).
In 1730, Nicolás Tamaral, a Jesuit missionary, founded San José del Cabo’s Mission in an attempt to convert indigenous Pericú people and thus quell frequent uprisings. The nearby Río San José was useful to the Spanish as a source of fresh water for galleons traveling to and from the Philippines.
European contacts with the Pericú began in the 1530’s, first when Fortún Ximénez and mutineers from an expedition sent out by Hernán Cortés, the conqueror of central Mexico, reached La Paz, followed shortly afterwards by an expedition under Cortés himself. Sporadic encounters, sometimes friendly and sometimes hostile, likend the Pericú with a succession of European explorers, privateers, missionaries, Manila galleons, and pearl hunters throughout the sixteenth, seventeenth, and early eighteenth centuries.
The Jesuits established their first permanent mission in Baja California at Loreto in 1697, but it was more than two decades later that they felt prepared to move into the Cape Region. Missions serving the Pericú, at least in part, were established at La Paz (1720), Santiago (1724), and San José del Cabo (1730). By the time the Spanish crown expelled the Jesuits from Baja California in 1768, the Pericú seem to have been culturally extinct, although some of their genes may survive in local populations of mixed descent.
The Pericú are best known for their maritime orientation, harvesting fish, shellfish, and marine mammals from the waters of the southern Gulf of California. Terrestrial resources such as agave the fruit of cacti, small game, and deer were also important. Agriculture wars not practiced.
