The Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City has opened along the city’s iconic Paseo de Reforma.
Located in a stunning, 58-storey building, the hotel has 153 rooms and suites, and more than 4,300 square feet of meeting and event space with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Chapultepec Park.
“We are thrilled to bring The Ritz-Carlton brand to Mexico City, exemplifying our commitment to delivering unparalleled experiences and creating meaningful memories in the world’s most exciting markets,” said Donna McNamara, vice-president and global brand leader, The Ritz-Carlton.
“The Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City will act as a literal and figurative gateway along the Paseo de Reforma, welcoming and encouraging guests to learn about the colorful history, dynamic present and bright future of Mexico City,” said Luis Lopez, the property’s general manager.
The hotel’s interiors were designed by Chapi Chapo Design. Paying homage to famed Mexican artists like Frida Kahlo, Gunther Gerzso and Leonora Carrington, metals, mirrors and glass are used to reflect the exterior into the interior, creating a surrealist experience by playing with perspective and distorting the surrounding, traditional architecture. A neutral colour palette invokes a sense of calm, while shades of smokey ash, deep blues, and metallic fibers are woven in throughout the hotel as a nod to Mexican storytelling and folklore.
Carefully curated amenities at the hotel include The Ritz-Carlton Club® Lounge with an exclusive Club Concierge, a heated indoor swimming pool, a large fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment, and a signature Ritz-Carlton Spa with six luxurious treatment rooms, steam rooms, saunas, and a timeless capsule room.
The property’s signature restaurant, Samos, is located on the 38th floor of the property. Chef Jonathan Felix brings his vast luxury experience and expertise in Mexican, Italian, French, Peruvian and Argentinian cuisines to the menu, which includes epicurean experiences such as Nido, a dessert of mango and passionfruit mousse encased in white chocolate and cradled in a spun sugar nest.
