Great design

Architecture aficionados should book at least one night at Camino Real in Polanco. The hotel, built for the 1968 Olympics, was designed by the late architect Ricardo Legorreta, who was renowned for his Mexican modernist style. In the Camino Real, that style is expressed through a reverent nod to Mexico's past, with part of the hotel's exterior evoking a pre-Hispanic pyramid. There are similar symbolic details throughout the hotel and its landscaping, including the caldera-shaped fountain at the hotel's entrance, which was designed by Isamu Noguchi. Inside, guests find museum-quality art by famous painters and sculptors and an array of amenities and services, including fitness and business centers; restaurants, cafés, and bars; and a pool. Located on the periphery of the upscale Polanco neighborhood, it's a short walk to top boutiques and restaurants, including several of the city's best (Pujol, Quintonil, and Biko), as well as to Bosque de Chapultepec, a massive urban park where you'll find a number of museums and attractions.
