This plush, privately owned member of the Leading Hotels of the World is within walking distance of the Zona Rosa. Its striking art nouveau facade combines pink stone and curved glass. The lobby is filled with an eclectic sculpture collection selected by the owners. Rooms and suites are spacious, but dated. A floor-by-floor refresh is underway that will take guest quarters away from art deco and toward midcentury modern. The pool and gym are in glass-enclosed atriums that
make you feel as if you're outdoors. The most elegant and updated of spaces is the spa, which has an extensive menu of massages, facials, and body/beauty treatments.

I stayed over Christmas last year, though the City was more quiet in general the staff made a good effort to bring up the holiday feel and were genuinely nice and helpful. Concierge very diligent in helping us find restaurants, book trips..etc.. Room was very luxourious if slightly small side, but it could be cozy. The location is not the best, although within easy reach of everything, you have to take a cab to almost all the attractions. However
hotels in the Zona Rosa (where all the night life, shops and restaurants are) are a bit trashy and a lower caliber than the Marquis and four seasons. So if you want the hotel stay to be an enjoyment in itself, then I highly recommend this place (not the hotel food though!) But if you want to be close to the action, stay in the Zona Rosa.

The hotel is really quite attractive and very busy during the week with many businesspeople milling about the banquet rooms. Staff were pleasant and accomodating. The room was tastefully decorated but the bed was a bit too firm for me. Thankfully the rooms are very quiet. The terry bathrobe was a definite plus!

The best feature of this hotel is it's exceptional staff. The concierge service attended to our every need and made our vacation absoutely seamless. Its location is convenient for walking to the sites in Chapultepec Park and the Zona Rosa. There is a metro stop about 6 blocks away for travel around the city. We got a weekend rate that was cheaper than what is listed here.
