Fodor's Expert Review Marquis Reforma Hotel & Spa

Paseo de la Reforma 465, Mexico City, Quintana Roo, 06500, Mexico See on Map Fodor's Choice

This plush, privately owned member of the Leading Hotels of the World is on the edge of the Zona Rosa and just blocks from Chapultepec Park. Its Art Nouveau facade combines pink stone and curved glass, and the lobby is filled with an eclectic sculpture collection selected by the owners. Rooms and suites are spacious, with a recently renovated look that tempers the dominant Art Deco theme with modern elements.

room

Mahogany wood furniture, carpeting, and gentle lamp lighting give rooms a homey feel. The well-priced "executive" rooms are the size of most hotels' suites.

Ask for a higher-floor room facing Reforma—they have fantastic views.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Area is very safe, with Condesa, Roma, Zona Rosa, and Juárez all within walking distance.

Restaurants

Rokai (10-minute walk) is one of the city's best Japanese restaurants; make a reservation, as it's very small. Grab tacos de carnitas from the outdoor taco stand at Los Panchos (8-minute walk). Dine on traditional Mexican fare ringed by chirping caged birds at Casa Bell (7-minute walk).

Bars

Fiebre de Malta (9-minute walk) is one of the best places to explore Mexico's craft beer scene, with good food as well. Salon Ríos (6-minute walk) is a new cantina with an old-school vibe.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Luxury at a fair price, with a world-class spa.
