Now Open: Andaz Mexico City Condesa

Andaz Mexico City Condesa has officially opened its doors. It marks the first urban Andaz property in Mexico and the second Andaz-branded hotel in the country following Andaz Mayakoba Riviera Maya. Located in Mexico City’s Condesa neighborhood, the new hotel is situated among several art galleries, boutiques and restaurants. The new hotel is housed within the i421 Live District, formerly known as Conjuto Aristos, dating back to 1961. Designed by architect José Luis Benlliure Galán who is credited with bringing Art Deco architecture to Mexico City, the building was named a heritage site.

The hotel offers 213 guestrooms, including 20 suites. Amenities include designer toiletries, a workstation and minibar filled with Mexican snacks and drinks from locally owned businesses. Pretty cool: Each guestroom also has a record player with modern and classic vinyl collections that can be exchanged in the lobby library, a tribute to the neighborhood’s oldest record store, La Roma Records. Rooms are completed with pops of color, such as a magenta staircase and hot pink walls and saffron sofas. Such elements, a nod to Mexican architect Luis Barragán’s signature style, integrate the eclectic essence of the Condesa neighborhood.

Andaz Mexico City Condesa’s dining venues include the Tulum-inspired Cabuya Rooftop restaurant on the hotel’s 17th-floor terrace, with 360-degree views of the city skyline and weekend D.J. sets. A seasonal menu highlights coastal Baja and Yucatan-inspired flavors with a selection of sharable seafood dishes accompanied by a signature cocktail program. The all-day Derba Matcha Café, located on the hotel’s first floor, serves artisanal sweet breads, small plates, matchas, lattes, mushroom coffee, cocktails and more.

The hotel’s Wooftop Beer Garden and Canine Club is primed to become a popular playground for guests and locals to bring their furry companions. Located on the second-floor terrace, the indoor-outdoor space has its own food truck serving drinks and snacks, including a special “dog beer”, a pop-up pet accessory shop from local boutique Perro del Mundo. The hotel also offers a selection of in-room amenities such as cozy dog beds and a menu of pup-friendly treats.

The hotel’s year-round heated rooftop pool offers views of the city below. The hotel’s second floor is home to Pasana Spa & Wellness, featuring four treatment rooms, lounge, beauty salon and 24-hour fitness center.

Tip: As an inaugural offer, Andaz Mexico City Condesa has announced a 20 percent discount on the hotel’s standard rate for stays through December 31, 2023 when booked directly before February 28, 2023.
