The swanky Presidente InterContinental Mexico City lives up to its name as the host of rulers like President Barack Obama as well as everyday business and leisure travelers. The 600-plus guestroom property towers over the trendy Polanco neighborhood, a great jumping off point to explore the capital city. The National Museum of Anthropology, city’s historic center and La Condesa’s restaurants and bars are within thirty minutes of the hotel on foot.
A soaring atrium lobby welcomes visitors with cool parquet floors, oversized furniture and Talavera pottery from Puebla. Rooms are decorated with midcentury modern design and clean, classic shades of blue and gray. Upper floors offer panoramic views of the sprawling city. Female travelers can book a room on the “Ladies Floor” with a special key for access, an all-female staff and amenities like manicure kits and aromatherapy oils.
Families can make use of the on-site kids club with babysitters to enjoy a night on the town or entertain children in the dedicated playroom. Foodies have their pick of seven restaurants and bars on the property, including an upscale Mexican eatery in addition to outposts of the Palm steakhouse and French brasserie Au Pied du Cochon. All the restaurants feature an extensive wine list from the on-site cellar, said to be the largest in Latin America. Workouts in the state-of-the-art fitness center fly by when paired with spectacular views of Capultecpec Park and motivation from the on-site personal trainers. Afterwards, unwind with an in-room massage.
