Denyse Tontz stars in Grand Hotel as Alicia Mendoza, the business grad daughter of hotel head Santiago Mendoza (Demián Bichir). Roselyn Sanchez co-stars as Alicia’s stern stepmom Gigi (Roselyn Sanchez), with Eva Longoria (who also executive produces) featured in flashback as Alicia’s late mom Beatriz.
Along with Grand Hotel’s intricate family dynamics comes its shares or surprises. “There is definitely no shortage of plot twists,” said Tontz. “A lot of these characters you think are going to start off a certain way and then you find yourself completely changing your opinion of them halfway through the season or even right at the end. Without giving too much away, nobody is really who they appear to be.”
