The St. Regis Suite has two bedrooms, 3,089 square feet of space and features a living room, private dining salon, library and kitchen. Cool touch: The hotel has a helipad on the roof.

 

Pujol

Eat

PolancoPujol

Ranked on San Pellegrino’s 50 Best Restaurants in the World, Pujol is widely considered the number-one restaurant in Mexico. The intimate restaurant is in the upscale Polanco neighborhood. Diners are treated to an eight-course tasting menu, which changes regularly based on what is in season.

The menu takes Mexican street food up to white linen level. Try the roasted leek with escamoles; the lobster taco with corizo, black beans and hog santa; and the fried pork belly with purslane, smoked navy beans and radishes.

Palacio de Bellas Artes opened in 1934 after decades of construction. The design is art deco, a mix of progressiveness and tradition with a combination of Mexican floral motifs and Mayan masks.

The only permanent collection is its murals. The Palace’s murals display the differences between artists and represent significant moments in Mexican art history. The Mexican Mural Movement stretched from 1921-1954.

Centro HistoricoRestaurante El Mayor

Atop the Librería Porrúa in the Centro Historico guests will find an outdoor terrace and cafe. The cafe serves Mexican specialties from breakfast to dinner, along with local beers and cocktails. Psst: This is a local, hidden hotspot.

The cafe overlooks Mexico City’s Templo Mayor archaeological site. The Templo Mayor is an Aztec pyramid that was discovered beneath the pavement of the Zocalo. The restaurant offers a birds-eye view of the juxtaposition between ancient Mexican heritage and colonial Spanish influence.
