Marriott International has debuted its luxury Ritz-Carlton brand in Mexico City.
The Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City is located in a 58-storey glass building by Taller G along the Paseo de Reforma, offering uninterrupted views of the Chapultepec Park.
The hotel occupies floors 36 to 47 and has 153 rooms and suites, with interiors designed by Chapi Chapo Design to “serve as a looking glass into Mexico City’s dynamic past, present and future”. The property pays homage to the city’s influence on the surrealist art movement, including works by Mexican artists such as Frida Kahlo, Gunther Gerzso and Leonora Carrington.
Additionally, metals, mirrors and glass have been used to reflect the exterior into the interior, providing a surrealist experience through the distortion of perspective. Meanwhile, a neutral colour palette is combined with shades of smokey ash, deep blues and metallic fibres.
The hotel also features a club lounge with a concierge, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant on the 38th floor, a heated indoor swimming pool, a large fitness centre, and a spa with six treatment rooms, steam rooms, saunas and a ‘timeless capsule room’.
Plus, it offers approximately 400 sqm of meetings and events space with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Chapultepec Park.
Donna McNamara, Vice President and Global Brand Leader at The Ritz-Carlton, commented:
“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.
“Whether enjoying a hotel tour with a local historian to be immersed into the Mexican rituals and celebrations that inspired the hotel design, or allowing our Ladies and Gentlemen to curate a day of exploration in the city, we are excited to provide both guests and locals with a unique lens on this incredible destination.”
Meanwhile, Marriott is set to bring its luxury Ritz-Carlton brand to Ningbo in China’s eastern Zhejiang province in 2025.
