At its core, Mexico City’s main thoroughfare, Paseo de la Reforma, is a gathering place for locals and visitors from all walks of life. Stretching from Chapultepec to Alameda Central, it is equal parts business and pleasure–banks and office buildings dot the avenue along with restaurants, hotels, and cultural destinations peppered in between, with scenic trails for bikes and walking leading to beautifully manicured parks and museum grounds. Among its most luxurious addresses is The St. Regis Mexico City, a soaring, sparkling skyscraper overlooking the Paseo. It’s a plush hideaway for the discerning traveler with as many reasons to stay in as there are to get out and explore the building’s surroundings, with some of the best food, drink, and views in the area (not to mention some of the dreamiest beds around). Below, Thomas Jecklin, General Manager of The St. Regis Mexico City, gives us an inside look at the stunning hotel and its most highly requested room.
