Guide Review - St. Regis Mexico City
The metal-and-glass tower claims to be one of the tallest buildings in Latin America (though shelve your penthouse dreams; the upper floors belong to residents). Still, the helipad is an option for weddings with a view, as are terraces overlooking the busy Paseo de la Reforma.
Guest rooms are outfitted with plush custom carpets and the sleek design evokes Mexican nature and architecture. The room has great toys, including an LCD TV in the bathroom mirror, DVD and MP3 players, and touch-screen phones with room controls.
The spa, despite its small relaxation area, offers a couples’ suite and Shared Indulgence package with a custom couples massage and facials. Impeccable butlers will draw a romantic bath in your room or pack your bags before you go.
The property is still growing. Boutique shops and the J&G Steakhouse by Jean-Georges Vongerichten should be open by the time you read this. The celebu-chef dining option will be a welcome. During our visit, a day after the hotel’s official opening, the food at Diana disappointed. Hopefully it was growing pains, and will catch up with the mature finish of the hotel.
