The intimate layout and bespoke service provide the ultimate sanctuary from urban chaos—despite being in one of the busiest sections of the city and in one of the tallest towers. A compilation of work by world-renowned architects, interior designers, and artists, the hotel is a stunning representation of modern elegance. The well-appointed rooms all have superb views of the city, personal butler service, and double-paned windows which eliminate almost all external noise. A cocktail on the palm-tree-lined terrace of the King Cole Bar is a great way to wrap up a business meeting or relax after a day of sightseeing.
The included St. Regis Butler Service can also be contacted via text while you're out and about, for spontaneous help with transportation, food and drink suggestions, or just to have coffee, Champagne, or a hot bath waiting in your room when you return from a busy day.
Room sizes start at 538 sq. ft., topping out at the 3000-square foot St. Regis Suite. No expense is spared, from the plush sofas and armchairs, to laser-cut silver window screens to Pratesi bed linens.
Marble and glass give the bathrooms the feel of a luxury spa, with rainfall showers, double sinks, and separate bathtubs. Amenities from Remède complete the experience.
Walking into the building feels like walking into an office tower, but take the elevator to the 3rd floor reception area, where the St. Regis luxury begins. Alternately, arrive via rooftop heliport.
The indoor pool has a panoramic 15th floor view of the city. It's beautiful, but not quite big enough for laps. It's flanked by two whirlpools of different temperatures.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Acrophobics beware: The infinity pool butts right up to the windows, giving an almost "drop off" effect.
The Reméde Spa is one the city's most luxurious. Attendants provide juice and tea in relaxation lounges, and serene locker rooms have sauna and steam rooms. Dozens of spa treatments are offered, as well as yoga, pilates, and individualized private training sessions.
Work out with the newest equipment facing floor-to-ceiling views. There are separate areas for cardio, strength, and core training, and a yoga and pilates studio. Personal training is available as well.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Mexico City's high altitude makes cardio training difficult for most. Trainers here can help suggest an altitude-friendly regimen.
Diana Restaurant serves high-end modern Mexican adjacent to the King Cole Bar—allow time for an aperitif there. J&G Grill—from famed chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten—serves international steak and seafood specialties with some Mexican touches. Candela Romero is a low-key Spanish restaurant and tapas lounge.
The bar at Candela Romero is open until 3:00am, after all other hotel—and neighborhood—bar options have closed.
The recently renovated King Cole Bar in the 3rd floor lobby area features a commanding mural from surrealist painter Pablo Weisz Carrington and terrace views of the Diana Fountain. The King Cole Bar at New York's St. Regis claims to have invented the Bloody Mary in 1934, and there's a signature version here: the "Sangrita Maria," with mezcal and pasilla chile. La Table Krug is a exclusive private room that hosts maximum 12 people for an 11-course French tasting menu designed to pair with the namesake Champagne. Tuesdays to Saturdays the space becomes a late-night, reservation-only speakeasy.
The hotel is walkable to Chapultepec Park, and the Zona Rosa, Juárez, Roma, Condesa, and Cuauhtémoc neighborhoods. The best way to get around in Mexico City is Uber or other similar ride-share services, though the subway is clean and convenient; the hotel is near the Insurgentes and Sevilla stops.
Located in the nearby Four Seasons, Il Becco (7-minute walk) serves some of the city's most refined Italian cuisine. Maison Kayser (4-minute walk) is a branch of the Parisian boulangerie.
Le Tachinomi Desu (7-minute walk) is a hip, hidden natural-wine bar modeled after the "standing bars" of Japan. Xaman (14-minute walk) is an underground speakeasy specializing in prehispanic-themed cocktails.
