Mexico City Vacations

Known to locals as The City of Palaces, Mexico City is a metropolis of haunting beauty and centuries of history. Legends and mythology gather in the whimsical flourishes of Art Nouveau architecture and in each empowering sip of café cortado—that’s espresso with a splash of steamed milk. Built on the site of the famous Aztec empire, Mexico City is an enchanting mix of old and new with Aztec ruins beneath the city's main square, the zocalo. More than palaces await your Mexico City getaway. Epitomizing the contrast that makes this city an international hub for culture and entertainment, mission-era churches keep watch just across the street from hip nightclubs, which some say are palaces of their own persuasion.

Where to Stay in Mexico City

Whether you’re traveling for leisure or planning a business vacation in Mexico City, consider these guest favorite hotels in prime locations:

  • Galeria Plaza Reforma: Leave your bags in your elegant, contemporary guestroom and step onto the rooftop terrace for a swim or to swoon over views of Juarez. Dine at one of the two on-site restaurants or order something delicious with 24-hour room service before and after visiting the nearby Angel of Independence Monument and the Diana the Huntress Fountain—it’s fiercely beautiful, as the name implies.
  • Krystal Grand Reforma Uno: Barrio Chino has a museum around almost every corner. From the Krystal Grand, walk to the Diego Rivera Mural Museum, the National Museum of the Revolution, and more. Then return to relax in a chic suite and pamper yourself with time at the full-service spa. Three restaurants and 24-hour room service make it even easier to live in the lap of luxury.
  • Camino Real Polanco Mexico: Looking for an accommodation as bold as your personality? This hotel takes a few cues from its neighbors, The Museum of Modern Art and the Rufino Tamayo Museum. Plush, colorful décor surrounds you and delicious cuisine fills the menus of eight in-house restaurants. Embrace the hospitality.
  • Marquis Reforma Hotel Spa: Experience the royal treatment in this spa hotel within walking distance to Castillo de Chapultepec. The art deco design is the perfect backdrop to the understated indulgence of a spa getaway. Slow down with a facial, body treatment, or massage—or all of the above—before you get caught up in the whirlwind of history and culture in the city center.

Attractions Big and Small

In a city built on a clash of histories, the museums are a must, and the National Museum of Anthropology should be a priority for any Mexico City vacation. It's filled with relics from the Aztec era, lending insight into Mexico's complex history. Explore the artifacts of intrigue, trace the timelines of war, peace, and celebration, and discover a side of Mexico you’ve yet to encounter. It's located right next to Chapultepec, a sprawling park that's a perfect spot for an afternoon stroll to ponder the evolution of this astounding city and the people who call it home.

If we had you at “City of Palaces,” you’ve got to add a few architectural wonders to your itinerary. Wander up the black marble staircase and through the breathtaking galleries of the Palacio de BellasArtes. The building itself is a masterpiece with its three domes glowing over the city center. To trade the opulent palace scene for stately castle grounds, venture over to Chapultepec Castle in the heart of its lovely namesake park. In Mexico City, even the mail services have a palace. Tour the historic Palacio Postal in the city center and buy stamps for all your “Wish you were here” postcards.
