W Mexico City

Campos Eliseos 252, Mexico City, Quintana Roo, 11560, Mexico

The first W hotel in Latin America grooves with a recently refreshed look: bright colors, clever lighting, and a lobby that brings to mind a cool 1960s airport lounge. It manages to be informal and chic at the same time, with the staff clad in casual black rather than the usual stiff uniforms. Guest-room design is inspired by Mexican culture, including wall-size, fashion-magazine-style photos of models dressed as Aztec goddesses and lucha libre wrestlers, and infinity mirrors that reveal an art installation of fancifully carved, colorful, fantastical Oaxacan alebrije animal sculptures when LED lights are switched on. Modern conveniences are thoughtfully worked into the newly renovated rooms, which feature plenty of well-placed power outlets (including built-in adapters for European plugs) and a "jack pack" cleverly hidden within the spacious work desks. The Away Spa and Fitness Center has a huge pre-Hispanic temazcal (adobe-domed sweat lodge).
