When it comes to planning a family getaway, choosing a destination where everyone will have a good time is half the battle. But to ensure a totally successful trip, a suitable hotel is essential as well. You wouldn’t want your four-year-old running around in the hallways of a serious, business-oriented hotel, or your teenager sulking about how there’s nothing to do in a quiet, romantic inn, now would you? But don’t worry. There are plenty of Mexico City hotels that are more than willing to accommodate you, the kids and even your pet, if you feel like making this a whole-household vacation. The selection below includes hotels with convenient locations (Reforma, Centro Histórico, Polanco and Santa Fe) near lots of appealing sights, and most of all, with family-friendly services, including baby-sitters, kiddie clubs, good dining options and in-room entertainment. Read on for the best family-friendly hotels in Mexico City.
Sheraton María Isabel Hotel & Towers
Dominating Reforma and overlooking the Angel of Independence, this 755-room hotel offers super-comfortable beds, high-speed WiFi, plus 24-hour room service and even sleeper dog beds in case you decide to bring your pet along. Kids will love the outdoor pool and the tennis courts, and they’ll be well taken care of by the hotel babysitters if you choose to go have a night out on the town.
Camino Real Polanco
Hyatt Regency Mexico City
The whole family will appreciate this hotel’s convenient location in Polanco’s hotel district, close to tons of restaurants, museums and sights. But there’s plenty to love inside the hotel, too, from 24-hour room service and concierge to the dining options, which include Japanese specialties at Yoshimi to Latin cuisine at Rulfo.
Gran Hotel de la Ciudad de México
The 60 rooms and suites at this classic hotel boast antique furniture and décor, but they are equipped with all the modern amenities, such as 50-inch LCD TVs. WiFi, and rainfall showerheads. Located in the heart of the city’s historic downtown, it’s the perfect starting point for a family adventure.
Westin Santa Fe
Located in the never-boring Santa Fe neighborhood, this recently-opened hotel offers relaxation for the whole family in their lovely bedrooms, outfitted with their trademark Westin Heavenly beds (or Heavenly cribs, if you have a baby). Their Italian restaurant, Pinzimini, serves excellent pastas, but room service is available 24/7 if you’re too wiped after a fun-filled day.
