Occupying a prime Polanco position adjacent to Chapultepec Park, this hotel is a five-minute walk from the anthropology museum. Catering to business travelers, this is the city's second-largest hotel, and has marvelous views from the top-floor suites. Each room soothes with a contemporary design of subdued earth tones and wood accents.
Regency Club rooms offer 40th floor Club access, which offers private check-in, ironing, and shoe shine services, in addition to free breakfast, snacks, and cocktails.
High ceilings and all amenities (coffeemakers, robes, etc); depending on your aesthetic, you'll find them sleek and modern, or sterile and lacking in warmth.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Standard rooms are on the small side; suites can offer far more space PLUS Club access, for not much more than a Club room.
Cool and spa-like, with marble bathrooms and granite flooring

Massages and facials are available; facials use products from Institut Esthederm in paris.

The bar at Rulfo restaurant has good cocktails and a large beer and wine list. The restaurant's food is equal parts Mexican, Peruvian, and Argentinian.
While Chapultepec Park and the Polanco neighborhood are easily walkable, it can be difficult to cross over into different neighborhoods on foot. The Auditorio subway stop is close.
Comedor Jacinta (6-minute walk) is a low-key cantina-style spot from acclaimed chef Edgar Nuñez. Pujol chef Enrique Olvera is behind eno (15-minute walk), an accessible breakfast or lunch spot.
La Única (10-minute walk) is a bustling modern cantina, with meat and seafood dishes from Northern Mexico. Get your karaoke on at Masaryk 52 (15-minute walk), a "cantabar" where they'll give you a CD of your performance.
