Sheraton María Isabel

Paseo de la Reforma 325, Mexico City, Quintana Roo, 06500, Mexico

The first international chain hotel in Mexico City still has an incomparable location, exemplary service, and even cachet, but its modern competition is beginning to eclipse it. Don Antenor Patiño, the Bolivian "Tin King," inaugurated this Mexico City classic in 1969, and named it after his granddaughter, socialite Isabel Goldsmith. The marble lobby has gleaming brass fixtures. The well-maintained guest rooms feature extra-comfy Posturepedic mattresses, goose-down (or hypoallergenic) pillows, and coffee makers, while the pricier Club rooms boast free bottled water (replenished daily) and access to the fitness center and Club lounge; rooms are currently undergoing a gradual renovation, due to be completed in late 2015. Penthouse suites in the 22-story tower are extra spacious and have butler service.
