Bursting with all the vibrancy that makes Mexico City such a rich destination for travelers, W Mexico City is a resort-like, amenity-flushed city hotel considered among the best places to stay in Mexico City. Here’s why this colorful, vibey spot should be at the top of every traveler’s list as they consider where to stay in Mexico City.
W Mexico City
Located in the heart of Polanco, one of the trendiest and most upscale areas of Mexico City, W Mexico City stands out from a mile away. While many of the neighborhood’s hotels cater almost exclusively to business travelers – and reflect that in their style and offerings – W Mexico City offers a refreshing dose of style and sass that makes it totally unique.
A Warm Welcome
From the entrance, visitors immediately get a taste of the hotel’s inspiring design and intriguing style. When I visited in November, the lobby was adorned with dramatic and colorful Dia de los Muertos-inspired decor for a festive welcome to the city. Rotating seasonal designs keep frequent visitors coming back for more.
The higher floors at the modern 25-story W Mexico City offer stunning views over the Polanco neighborhood and the surrounding areas.
Room With A View
Views continue from the hotel’s 237 guest rooms and suites. Comfortable yet modern decor brings the energy of the city and adds dimension to the rooms.
Colorful and Cool
The hotel offers a number of different room configurations and designs for guests to choose from, including bi-level suites complete with balconies and stunning panoramic views.
The hotel’s colorful decor incorporates light, texture, and contrasting tones to add depth and drama to the interiors.
All About The View
Even bathrooms offer stunning vistas of Polanco and beyond, across towers and towards city green spaces like Campo Marte and the famous Bosque de Chapultepec.
Wellness isn’t an afterthought at W Mexico City; a well-equipped gym and pool with a view help visitors unwind after a day amidst the busyness of the city. The hotel also offers an impressive spa with a complete menu of services. It is also home to the only temazcal in Mexico City for those looking to experience this age-old Mesoamerican tradition.
The food and beverage experience at W Mexico City is a highlight of a stay and a point of pride for the hotel. You’ve never seen a breakfast spread like this; featuring both Mexican favorites and international dishes in a colorful dining room with a view, it feels far from your standard hotel breakfast and much more like a genuine culinary encounter in Mexico City.
The culinary tour continues at Trivvu, one of the hotel’s signature restaurants. It offers an open terrace overlooking the energetic streets of Polanco.
Trivvu is open for both lunch and dinner, though it’s particularly enchanting when illuminated at night.
Happy Hour Haven
The hotel’s elevated food and beverage offerings continue with cocktails. Using local and international spirits and thoughtful Mexico City-specific inspiration, the hotel offers a happy hour experience to remember.
Mexico City’s Living Room
The Living Room Bar further reflects the hotel’s vibrant aesthetic while creating cozy spaces for guests. Drinks, delicious bites, and music make it worth hanging around for.
Cool and casual spaces to discover make W Mexico City a winner for all kinds of travelers. Business travelers appreciate the convenient location and numerous ways to easily but meaningfully connect with the heart of Mexico City’s culture and cuisine during a stay.
