Hotels in Mexico City
Mexico City hotels range from the luxurious to the ultra-modern–and everything in between. Business travelers usually head to Santa Fe, a corporate neighborhood in the city’s western side, while those looking to explore the city prefer the areas of Polanco, Cuauhtémoc, Roma or Condesa.
For nearly 50 years, Camino Real Polanco has been one of the best hotels in Mexico City, in great part because of its stunning construction, the work of renowned Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta. The colorful, spacious hotel features three swimming pools, 23 event rooms, several gardens, plus excellent dining options, including Morimoto and Bice Bistro. In the heart of the city’s Centro Histórico is Downtown Mexico, housed inside a renovated 17th-century colonial building. A rooftop bar, a pool terrace, and state-of-the-art amenities like flat screen TVs and iPod docks in every room bring the hotel to the present. Four Seasons Mexico City is a quiet, sophisticated hideout in the city’s main avenue, Paseo de la Reforma. The classically elegant hotel boasts a courtyard, rooms with marble bathrooms and high-speed Internet access, as well as a swimming pool and a spa–perfect for relaxing after a long day of walking around the city.
The city’s most elegantly modern hotel occupies the first 15 floors of a Cesar Pelli–designed building on Paseo de la Reforma. Rooms are large and plush (Yabu Pushelberg again), but the real showstopper is the panoramic view from the spa and fitness center.
Located on a quiet tree-lined street just one block from Chapultepec Park, the Camino Real Polanco Mexico has a contemporary façade with a pink sculptural wall by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta.
The Presidente InterContinental feels like a small city unto itself in the heart of the ever-chic Polanco district. Located just a short walk from the National Anthropology Museum and Chapultepec Park, “El Presidente” looms 42 stories high with its modern glass-and-concrete structure.
This 35-room sanctuary in the heart of Polanco is marked by rich Yabu Pushelberg–designed interiors and thoughtful touches—a full-length three-way mirror; coffee that arrives minutes after your wake-up call.
JW Marriott Hotel Mexico City is located in the upscale Polanco neighborhood, within a 15-minute walk of the financial district, Auditorio Nacional (National Auditorium), and Avenida Presidente Masaryk. The 26-story hotel is divided into two towers, one steel and glass, the other concrete.
The area's top hotel has 28 stylish—and affordable—tented suites and a Japanese onsen–inspired spa, complete with bamboo furniture, burning incense, and serene fountains. Don't miss the 90-minute Shaman Healing session, which includes an energy-balancing massage.
Magenta sofas and textured wall patterns add a playful touch to the 62 sleek, white rooms.
A trendy, artist-filled neighborhood in Mexico City now has a hip hotel to match. Surrounded by restaurants, bars, art galleries, and leafy tree-lined streets, Condesa DF is one of the most happening places in town.
Hotel Habita spurned a renaissance in modern boutique hotels when it opened in the Polanco district in 2000. Even today, Habita’s eerie cube shape and opaque glass walls fascinates the designed-minded international traveler.
Lumina Luxury Suites in Mexico City’s vibrant Polanco district is the ideal boutique hotel for travelers seeking privacy and location. Each of the 12 suites is individually designed, but all interiors have mid-century furnishings and artwork.
A 26-story property in the Polanco neighborhood, W Hotel blends a stylish nightclub vibe with resort-like comforts. Each of the 237 rooms has bright-red walls, contemporary white furniture, and bathrooms with silk hammocks suspended over large, round soaking tubs.
Only a world-class hotel like the Four Seasons could make Mexico City, a hectic metropolis of 21 million, feel relaxing.
An elevator ride up 28 floors lands you in a cool lobby of monochromatic granite, high above the haze blanketing Mexico City.
