My name is Hotel, Gran Hotel. The Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico totally deserves the James Bond reference: it’s an outstanding property, probably one of the most remarkable hotels you can find in Mexico City. And, actually, two 007 movies were shot here: the first in 1989, starring Timothy Dalton on ‘Licence to Kill’; and the other one quite recently… Daniel Craig is on board and the opening scene follows him in the Day of the Dead Parade up to el Zocalo, and while he enters Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico. Yes, you got it, we’re talking about ‘Spectre’. Indeed this is an interesting piece of information, but we assure you there are plenty more reasons to stay here. The location is privileged: you’re right at the heart of Centro Histórico, Mexico City historical centre. Now, when we say the heart, this is not metaphoric: you’ll be less than 6 minutes away from superior landmarks such as the Cathedral, Technotitlan Ceremonial Center, Templo Mayor and the Presidential Palace (if you’re a fan of Diego Rivera do not miss this spot). What this also means is you can see those from your room or while enjoying your Sunday brunch at the terrace that overlooks el Zocalo. The icing on the cake is the hotel itself. Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico is a rarity, an incredible example of well preserved art nouveau in the Americas, with its beautiful 1908 Tiffany-style ceiling amongst many other charming details. Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico: we dare to call it one of the best hotels in Mexico City.

One of the best places to stay at in Mexico City is Reforma, the district renowned for the monumental avenue that baptized it, but also well distinguished as an important business hub. And in Reforma the St. Regis Mexico City is by far one of the best hotels in Mexico City. The St. Regis Mexico City sits pleasantly in the iconic Torre de la Libertad, ridiculously close from two of the most important landmarks in town: 5 minutes away from El Ángel de la Libertad (The Angel) and a few 10 minutes more from Chapultepec Castle and Park. But if you will love to be as central as this, you’ll fall in a complete “coup de foudre" for the St. Regis Mexico City. All in all, the style is pure elegance and classy comfort, either if you choose a room or a suite for your stay or pamper yourself to the edge by booking the magnificent Presidential Suite. What about the sights, you may ask. My, my, we couldn’t call them less than panoramas or panoramic, because the skyline is at your eyes’ reach in its widest perspective… you only have to choose the angle or decide if you wish to have a different one every single day. To arrive in style at this fabulous Mexico City hotel (why not?), make arrangements to land at its exclusive helipad.

When a hotel calls itself Grand Fiesta Americana Chapultepec there must be a strong reason for it. Indeed, there is. The Grand Fiesta Americana Chapultepec is like a huge open window towards Chapultepec Park, one of Mexico City’s must-sees. More commonly called ‘El Bosque de Chapultepec’, is considered the most important city ‘lung’. In fact it is one of the largest city parks in the Western Hemisphere, 686 hectares (1.695 acres) of lush vegetation that ensure Mexico City oxygen’s constant renewal. But the well deserved fame comes also from the dwelling of other important landmarks: Chapultepec Castle, Modern Art Museum, Anthropology Museum and Auditorio Nacional. What this means is that all these will be just a few minutes away from the hotel. What this also says about it is that the sights you can expect are breathtaking. The Grand Fiesta Americana Chapultepec is a classic five star hotel, most probably one of the top hotels in Mexico City.
