Fodor's Expert Review Le Méridien Mexico City

Paseo de la Reforma 69, Mexico City, Quintana Roo, 06030, Mexico See on Map

This comfortable, all-suites hotel right in the middle of Reforma Avenue action is perfectly located to get you just about anywhere in the city fast. Formerly owned by Air France, the chain maintains an aeronautical motif, with the property's geographical coordinates embedded in the lobby floor, and a mezzanine bar named Latitude. Rooms are spacious, furnished with marble bathrooms, sleeper sofas, and flat-screen TVs.

The hotel offers two free passes to the terrific Rufino Tamayo Museum for guests.

Minimal and crisp, in a palette of deep grey with red accents. Superior and Corner Suites offer panoramic views through floor-to-ceiling windows (acrophobics beware), some looking to the nearby Monumento a la Revolución, which is lit up at night.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Internet is only free for Starwood Preferred Guest members.

Getting Around

Anywhere in the Centro Histórico or Juárez neighborhoods are a short walk, and the hotel can easily arrange taxis as well as guided tours.


Amaya (6-minute walk) serves inventive Mexican food with an all-natural wine list. El Círculo del Sureste (9-minute walk) has been a favorite for high-end Yucatecan cuisine for decades.


Hanky Panky (11-minute walk) is a hidden speakeasy with some of the city's most creative cocktails. Parker & Lenox (6-minute walk) boasts a Prohibition-era jazz theme.


Spacious rooms and a practical choice for visitors who want to base themselves near the Centro Histórico but with easy access to other areas.
