Overview

Mega-high-rise hotel with a spa and seven bars and restaurants in Mexico City’s swanky Polanco district

The Lowdown

With its tower soaring above upmarket Polanco and its seven bars and restaurants, the InterContinental offers all the comforts savvy modern travelers have come to expect. Many of the 600-plus guestrooms have been recently renovated and are contemporary in style, with sleek furnishings and marble bathrooms. Foodies are spoiled for choice: There’s an upscale Mexican eatery and a restaurant serving Cantonese cuisine, as well as locations of the Palm steakhouse and Au Pied du Cochon, a French brasserie. A spa, fitness center and business center round out the amenity list.

In the Area

Polanco, filled with upscale condos and many international companies’ local headquarters, is a great jumping-off point for both business and leisure travelers. The hotel is within walking distance of the National Museum of Anthropology and good shopping districts, and it’s also well positioned for exploring the city’s historic center. Take in some history at Angel of Independence Square and then, come evening, amble the streets of La Condesa, which are filled with exceptional restaurants and atmospheric bars.

Great value.

Stayed here for 4 nights for business. It is located in Polanco which is safe, charming and enjoyable. The dining in the hotel was top notch and very reasonably priced. Staff was all very friendly and helpful. The room is a little small and the bathroom is cramped. But the views were lovely and there is a good
Minibar and work area. Would definitely stay here again

Outstanding Hotel
Reviewed 2 days ago

This is definitely one of my favorite hotels in the IC group. There is an excellent selection of restaurants and the service is outstanding. Close distance to the castle of Chapultepec and many other important historical sites. The hotel lounge is wonderful, and there is a great 6-8 pm selection of various beverages. The rooms are comfortable and well maintained. Look forward to returning back soon.

Wonderful hotel in a great location
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Excellent, clean hotel. Comfortable beds in decent sized rooms. Club lounge serves a great, varied hot breakfast and there are snacks and drinks in the evening included as well. Gym is a decent size with plenty of equipment.

Could do more for Spire Elite guests but this is a standard IHG issue.

Worst Intercontinental ever
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I have had the good fortune to stay in 30+ Intercontinental Hotels around the world. This is without a doubt the worst I have had the misfortune to stay at. The check in told me that there were not any suites available so I would not be upgraded. The king bed room on the Club floor room is not what you would expect, on the small side. The club lounge staff are surly and very inefficient, used plates and glasses on almost every table. The hot food was cold and the rest of the selection is OK at best. It also must be said that it came as a shock when ordering a Bloody Mary to be told that they do not serve cocktails. Oh how I wish that all Club rooms were like Shanghai or Singapore!!!!
