Mexico City's commanding high-rise

152 Rooms / 37 Suites

Apart from the stunning city views this modern hotel tower offers, the one thing that sets The St. Regis Mexico City apart from other places you might stay in the Federal District is the service.

Tired from a long flight? Veuve Clicquot champagne service greets you at check-in. Need a jacket pressed or your shoes shined? The St. Regis signature butler service, which performs all the tasks of a personal assistant, is available to guests of the hotel, whether you’re in a standard deluxe room, or the signature St. Regis suite. Even during the shortest of stays, the staff will learn and remember your name, offering a personalized greeting anytime you walk by the front desk.

Guest rooms are spacious and sumptuous, with floor-to-ceiling windows and clean, soothing green tones accented by bright pops of deep purple. All of the creature comforts you could need are available: a super comfy bed with soft, high-thread-count sheets; flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi and touch button control of the lighting; and a fabulous bathroom boasting pale green marble floors, in-mirror television, Remède toiletries, a sunken tub and one of the most fantastic rainfall showers you’ll ever experience.

On the 15th floor, whether you’re getting a pedicure in the beautiful Remède Spa salon, getting in a cardio workout on a treadmill, swimming in the indoor pool or lazing about in the Jacuzzi, the floor-to-ceiling views are simply breathtaking.

Dining is also an experience. Stop for a drink in the swanky King Cole Bar for a Sangrita María, the hotel’s signature Bloody Mary, or book a private tasting menu at Chef's Table by Krug, coming in May of 2015. The salmon sashimi and crispy rice cakes at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s J&G Grill are not to be missed, and don’t leave without experiencing the magnificent Sunday brunch at Restaurant Diana, widely regarded as the best in the city.

The Neighborhood

Rising high above the Paseo de la Reforma, The St. Regis Mexico City is well-located in the Plaza of Diana the Huntress, where it overlooks the landmark Fountain of Diana. The tree-lined Paseo de la Reforma is centrally located near neighboring zones such as Condesa, Polanco, Zona Rosa and Colonia Roma. The Centro Histórico, where you’ll find the largest concentration of historical buildings, museums and architectural sights, is approximately 15 minutes away by car, and the airport is a 30- to 45-minute drive away. Just a five-minute walk away, Chapultepec Park beckons, where guests can visit the historic Chapultepec Castle, world-renowned National Museum of Anthropology, Museum of Modern Art and the city’s largest zoo, the Chapultepec Zoo. Also within walking distance is the iconic Angel of Independence Monument. On Sundays, the city closes down the Paseo de la Reforma to accommodate joggers and bikers, who will flood the street with colorful workout gear.

The Design Style

From the outside, the 31-story The St. Regis Mexico City is sleek and modern, with a dark blue-mirrored façade that makes its mark as one of the tallest buildings in Mexico City. The new construction, which debuted in 2009, is the work of famed architect Cesar Pelli of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. The design inside is an extension of this modern, contemporary theme, the vision of design team Yabu Pushelberg. On the lobby floor, pale blue-gray velveteen couches dot the wide space, which is framed by the floor-to-ceiling windows. The color scheme reflects the pale blues of the outside skies, bringing the outside world in. Arresting stone sculptures serve as the focal point for the lobby, a strikingly bold touch to the otherwise soft coloring. Elsewhere in the hotel, you get a sense of understated luxury, with everything feeling pristine and modern, from the white marbled entry level with its fresh floral sculptures, to the dark chocolate brown landings on each of the guest floors, to the relaxing green and deep purple palette employed in the guest room décor.

The Rooms

The St. Regis Mexico City’s 189 guest rooms are elegant and luxurious, with a color scheme of light greens and deep purples, a plush velvet-covered couch in the sitting area and a dark wood writing desk. All rooms are equipped with 42-inch flat-screen television sets, in-room safe, ample closet space, and a one-touch call system that will summon the floor’s butler for everything from coffee and tea service, to packing and unpacking. Green marble floors complement glass mosaic etchings in the bathrooms, where rainfall showers with spa-strength water pressure and deep, sunken bathtubs provide the ultimate relaxation at the end of a busy day in the city. In-mirror television screens make it easy to watch the news or the latest television shows while getting ready at the sink and vanity area. Plush robes are available in each room as well.

The signature hotel suites include the Astor and the St. Regis, which offer private entrances for celebrities and high-profile individuals requesting privacy, and spacious accommodations that include living area, extra bedroom suite, dining area, office and kitchenette.

The Food

The St. Regis Mexico City offers several dining options to suit the needs of its guests. At Restaurant Diana, the hotel’s signature restaurant, guests can experience contemporary Mexican flavors at the hands of executive chef Sylvain Desbois for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When weather permits, Restaurant Diana offers alfresco dining on the terrace overlooking the Fountain of Diana, with excellent cityscapes. On Sundays, indulge in the establishment’s over-the-top brunch, which boasts a ceviche bar, sushi bar, raw bar, prime rib station and savory desserts. Another option is J&G Grill, a Jean-Georges Vongerichten concept. In the gorgeous bar area, lit by low-hanging modern golden chandeliers, guests can enjoy signature cocktails and a tapas-like bar menu. The restaurant offers light fare of fun appetizers, perfect for sharing, like its amazingly delicious avocado pizza, or its salmon sashimi with crispy rice and chipotle mayonnaise, which can be followed by a more substantial entrée of soy-glazed braised short ribs with apple-jalapeno purée. On the hotel's ground floor, Candela Romero from Andalusian chef Alejandro Sánchez focuses on Spanish cuisine with a contemporary twist; the stylish dining space includes a lounge area and terrace overlooking Paseo de la Reforma. Finally, for an after-dinner drink, the King Cole Bar offers a place to retire for a Bloody Mary, digestif or classic whiskey on the rocks, with a bar menu of Mexican-style tapas.
