In 1998, a remodeling was carried out to turn it into a Mexican Handicraft Center inspired by the Mayan castles. For the same reason the name was also changed, thus becoming Plaza Mayafair. The complex even had an area where Papantla Flyers celebrated their ancestral rituals at sunset and a theater in which a show of Mayan culture was represented.
In 2011, after the appearance of mega commercial complexes in the city, its transformation into a hotel began, based on the world of fashion and arts derived from its past. This is how Mayafair Design Hotel started on its second floor and, later, Arts Hotel All Inclusive and Spazio Boutique Hotel share recreational facilities.
The entrance sculpture was made in 1985 by Canfield, a renowned Mexican artist of giant sculptures, to represent the essence of the building: a merchant offering his products, in this case to a Mayan warrior. It is made of bronze and weighs 80 tons. Initially it was designed to be installed indoors, but due to its dimensions and the desire of the developers to show its majesty, the plans were modified and it was decided to install it in its current location.
The dome has been replaced 3 times by the effect of the sun, whose action there is no material to resist. Currently a Philippe Starck style curtain has been applied to reduce the average temperature of the square. The reason why the hurricanes respected the square was thanks to the barrel vault of the roof, which deflects the winds leaving the structure and its interior safe.
