Without a doubt, The St. Regis Mexico City resides in a favorable location. The 31-story tower has become a landmark on one of the capital’s main veins, Paseo de la Reforma. Close to Chapultepec Park, the trendy Roma and Condesa neighborhoods and upscale Polanco, the hotel makes it easy to wander on foot to a plethora of the city’s best offerings.
Here are five more reasons why the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star standout needs a place on your must-visit list.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of The St. Regis Mexico City, a contemporary skyscraper designed by late Argentine architect César Pelli and decked out by renowned design studio Yabu Pushelberg.
Even after a decade, nothing about the hotel feels dated. This is likely due to a room design that calls upon a muted palette of deep maroons and grays, plush carpets, leather headboards and velvet accessories that give off that classically luxurious feel.
Outside of the rooms, The St. Regis’ signature floral scent — Caroline’s Four Hundred — subtly perfumes the air as you move from the bright, open lounge to the low-lit King Cole Bar.
Multiple Dining Options
You could feasibly stay for a week and never get bored of the dining at The St. Regis Mexico City. Whether you fancy traditional family-style Mexican cuisine at Diana Restaurant, avocado pizza and sashimi at J＆G Grill or contemporary Spanish bites at Candela Romero, the sleek hotel has it covered.
Stepping the elegance up a notch, La Table Krug crafts an eight- to 11-course, champagne-paired meal for up to 12 guests in a chic and contemporary private dining room.
Or, in keeping with the traditions of The St. Regis, you also can enjoy an English-style afternoon tea every day, just like the brand’s founding patroness and socialite Caroline Astor.
In more delicious news, the Edo Kobayashi Group — owners of Mexico City’s fashionable Japanese eatery Rokai — has a restaurant set to open within The St. Regis building soon.
A Digital Meditation Butler
The St. Regis is world-renowned for its butler service. Not only do all of the brand’s hotels across the globe provide this personalized perk for every guest, but the Mexico City property also offers something rather unique in the form of a digital meditation butler.
Book this through Remède Spa and prepare to unwind in futuristic style. You will receive a Muse headband that measures your brainwaves to see just how stressed or relaxed you really are. Pick a goal, whether it be deep sleep or renewed energy, pop on the headphones and the meditation butler will do the rest.
As your stress level falls, the sounds that you hear become exponentially gentler until you achieve stillness — the antidote to the bustle of the city. This serene experience is also available as an in-room treatment to help you achieve more restful sleep.
Pampering and Panoramas
If you prefer more low-tech relaxation, Remède Spa should still be your port of call.
After a long day of exploring, a purifying facial and hot stone massage (an indulgence that culminates in a warm paraffin foot wrap) should do just the trick. Top it off with a pampering pedicure from the 15th-floor salon while you soak up those Mexico City views
The pool, which also overlooks the skyline, is simply stunning by day and perhaps even more impressive when the sun goes down and the city lights up. Enjoy a lap or two after dark or luxuriate in the warm Jacuzzi as you watch the world go by.
Treats for Tots
If you’re coming with the kids, The St. Regis Mexico City has you covered. Ask the butler for the in-room glamping experience and you will return to find an indoor camp site complete with a tent, bear and lamp. Comfortable mattresses and milk and cookies ensure your children will have an unforgettable night’s sleep.
Look out for other tasty treats. Popcorn and cotton candy machines pass through the hotel during weekends and a candy trolley rolls around introducing Mexican sweet (and sometimes spicy) confections. Other pint-sized perks include toy Bentleys and Teslas that let toddlers traverse the property’s grounds in style and free dining for children under eight to Diana Restaurant’s famous Sunday brunch.
