Mexico City, Mexico
The Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City
What it is
A brand new 58 story tower in the financial district, with 153 sleek guest rooms, an Eastern Mediterranean restaurant, a heated indoor pool and a spa inspired by ancient Aztec traditions.
What it isn't
Lacking a view. Since guest quarters are tucked on floors 36 to 47, you can request a panorama over the ginormous 1,695 acre Chapultepec Park (for comparison, New York’s Central Park is a mere 843 acres).
What we think
Rising from Mexico City like a proverbial Phoenix, this newly opened paen to luxury has everything you could want in an urban resort—and then some. Take the serene guest rooms themselves, each fitted with a private terrace or balcony, plus marble-lined bathrooms (complete with deep soaking tubs and two sinks) and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the cityscape. Upgrade to a suite for roomier digs, starting at 689 square feet for a Junior Suite (compared to an already expansive 410 square feet for a starter Deluxe King Terrace). We recommend booking on the Club Level for insider treats like five culinary tastings a day; a selection of tipples from the in-house sommelier; two garments pressed gratis per day; and a devoted Club Concierge ready to help pamper you.
You're here because
Honestly, you practically require an indoor heated pool on vacay, and theirs is one of the prettiest in town. Bonus: a high-tech fitness center to help you work off your multiple plates of al pastor tacos.
Ensconced in your leather-wrapped booth in their Mediterranean boite, lofted high over the city, your hummus is so perfect you could swear you’re back in Istanbul...if not for the prime view of Mexico City’s skyline from the floor to ceiling windows in front of you.
