Ritz-Carlton hotel has joined the glittering Mexico City skyline with its newest hotel complex, standing 58-stories high. The luxury glass tower property contains the Ritz-Carlton hotel and a selection of signature residential apartments.
The Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City is the first Ritz-Carlton property to open in the Latin American capital, and it hasn’t held back on design or guest offerings. Situated on the vibrant Paseo de Reforma, the hotel is only 4.8km from Mexico City’s historical centre and offers access to the Chapultepec Park, Angel de la Independencia, the Cuauhtémoc monument and the many boutiques and designer stores found in the Polanco, Condesa and Roma neighbourhoods.
The hotel will assist guests with their sightseeing around the city, offering private tours of the Anthropology Museum and a number of Mexico City’s other cultural sites.
The hotel’s architecture and design features are what really make the Mexico City property stand out. Drawing on the city’s association with surrealist art movements and being the birthplace of renowned Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, the hotel chooses to celebrate the city’s artistic past in its decor and design.
Throughout the hotel, you will find reflective materials that mirror the exterior to the interior to create a unique surrealist experience with the addition of metallic fibres and a collection of traditional artworks referencing Mexican storytelling and folklore.
The guest rooms and suites are also thoughtfully designed with a calming neutral colour palette focusing on smokey ash and deep blue shades. Each room features a floor-to-ceiling window, offering breathtaking views over the capital and Chapultepec Park.
The rooms all feature spacious marble bathrooms with a luxuriously deep bathtub, while the suites also feature separate dining and living rooms. Most of the guest rooms also have access to their own sun-drenched private terrace.
Dining occurs at the hotel’s Samos restaurant, serving up Eastern Mediterranean cuisine made with local ingredients and Mexican flavour influences. The bar plays with Mexico’s history of spirits, mixing up a selection of handcrafted mezcal cocktails. Ritz-Carlton Club members can also enjoy the exclusive Club Level that features five daily culinary tastings and sommelier-selected wines.
The hotel spa also draws on local ingredients, using botanicals inspired by the traditional healing practices of the local Aztec culture in all of their treatments. Guests can enjoy an indoor pool, fitness centre, spa and sauna to relax after their day of sightseeing, with business and meeting rooms available as well.
The signature residences are located on the upper floors of the property, with residents having access to the hotel’s facilities, along with high-speed elevators, in-residence dining, an automated parking area with a valet and a heliport.
