Part of the luxury hotel strip along Paseo de la Reforma, a grand boulevard in the city’s gilded embassy zone, this 208-room high-rise is ideal for well-compensated business types, who power-lunch in the three upscale restaurants, work out in the gym and mainline CNN in plush rooms tastefully furnished in autumnal tones with dark wood accents and potted orchids. The spa, with its steam bath, sauna and glass atrium swimming pool, is a highlight.
In the Area
Capitalize on the Marquis’s proximity to Chapultepec Park, the city’s answer to Central Park, a vast 2100-acre green space teeming with cultural landmarks lining leafy walkways. Must-sees include the Modern Art Museum, housing a permanent collection that’s a who’s-who of Mexico’s greatest. Or sign up for a temporary pass with the new bike share program Ecobici, a surprisingly straightforward way to get around the traffic-clogged city and admire Reforma landmarks like the Christopher Columbus statue, Diana Fountain, and Independence Monument.
How to Get There
I recently stayed for a three day business trip. I was overwhelmed by the fabulous service and warm welcome I received. Every member of staff went above and beyond. They couldn't do enough for me. The final highlight on my last day was the superb efforts of Octavio flambeeing my mango dessert in tequila at the wonderful terrace bar. I hope I have to return here for business again in the future. It was a treat.
This hotel is very well located in Mexico City. Right on the wide tree lined Paseo de la Reforma and very close to bosques de Chapultepec. We loved being there on a Sunday when they close paseo de la reforma to traffic and it seems like all of Mexico comes out to walk run or bike the lovely boulevard. Back to the hotel. the room was comfortable and very clean. Every night they would leave us some fruit at turn down service. They have lovely L'occitane toiletries and the best hotel gym I have ever seen. They have several restaurants in the hotel and we had a brunch buffet at la cuchara de san Sebastian on Sunday on the outdoor terrace upstairs that was amazing. With typical Mexican food as well as continental fare. We also had breakfast at los Canarios downstairs and were very happy with the food.Diego, Roberto and Jose Luis treated us so well. We were also very happy with the concierge. The only reasons I do not give it five stars is that the exterior and the lobby are a bit dated with some unusual sculpture in the lobby area and that my room key kept getting de magnetized every day and it was a pain to have to keep going to the front desk. I would stay here again.
Absolutely great hotel, brilliant location - very close proximity to Chapultepec Park & very safe neighbourhood.
Incredible food at Los Canarios; special shout out to Marcos, Adan, Naranjo & Carlos N -- great service and lovely atmosphere. Solid 10/10 hotel and restaurant, absolutely recommend to all visiting Mexico City.
Located in the exclusive Reforma Avenue, this hotel exceeded my expectations. I have stayed in other hotels on Reforma, but none of them WOWed me as this one. From the moment I entered, its Art-deco architecture stood out from the rest of the modern buildings. As soon as I walked-in, a pleasant but subtle smell of natural lavender made my lobby waiting comfortable (the lobby sofa is soft and welcoming). Top notch cleaning room service, comfortable beds, world-class spa/pool and complementary fresh fruit, made my stay unforgettable. Even the smallest details made a difference. They left two water bottles in the bathroom every night, and I always took one to my night table. On the third night, the staff left one in the bathroom and the second one on my night table. Will stay here 100%
If you value service over room swankiness, this is the place. I was in a junior suite which was big but all a bit brown, which makes it all feel a bit dated. However it was very clean and all the staff were super attentive and eager to help.
Had a massage in the spa while killing time before my late flight and I have to say it was probably the best I've ever had.
Location is spot on; easy walk to La Ciudadela artisan market and the main museums etc.
I'm back in DF in October and will be surprised if I don't book back in.
