The Four Seasons has been a staple of luxury in Mexico City since the 1990’s, and recent renovations ensure that the hotel is still one of the city’s best. Located downtown in the Paseo de la Reforma area, the Four Seasons is an oasis for travelers looking for an escape from the hectic city, while the central location is ideal for sightseeing.
With a simple and elegant exterior, the property has a quiet entrance and swanky, hip public spaces. Guests meet a small reception area and long hallway that opens to the hotel’s picturesque, verdant courtyard. A haven from the city’s noise, the garden is filled with intimate seating areas, and, come evening, is a lovely place to enjoy an aperitif while listening to live Spanish guitar.
Most of the rooms offer courtyard views and are designed with classic, clean lines styled with modern touches, such as dark wood French doors and abstract carpet designs. However, while accommodations are sleek and comfortable, the Four Seasons’ public spaces are the property’s main draw. In addition to the courtyard, guests enjoy the Fifty Mils Bar, which is a sizable space split into several nooks and as a result feels more like a private library than a hotel bar. Visitors should also be sure to check out the breakfast scene (in the hotel’s main restaurant), which draws a chic business crowd. Another perk of the property is the small outdoor pool, which, while family-friendly, is a lovely place relax for adults, too.
**Good to Know: **Those wanting a spa treatment should look to the St. Regis, as the Four Seasons Spa is small and underwhelming.
