JW Marriott Hotel Mexico City Polanco, nestled in the heart of Mexico City’s prestigious Polanco District has completed renovations of the entrances and lobby, as well as new culinary concepts including a bar and mezcal room alongside 90 square metres of re-designed meeting spaces all of which are rooted in the social, physical, and historical elements of Polanco.
This is the final stage of a renovation that started in 2021 with the full refurbishment and modernisation of its 269 guestrooms and 45 suites. Beyond this tangible change, the hotel is opening its doors to new experiences, serving as a platform for local talent with special events and offerings inspired in the great culture, gastronomy and traditions of Mexico.
Originally opened in 1996, the Mexico City property was the first JW Marriott hotel outside of the United States and now, with redefined interiors, is ushering in a new era of luxury for the brand. The evolution of these spaces provides a timeless design that creates the perfect ambiance for meaningful connections and a purposeful travel experience for both business and leisure guests. The property offers an unparalleled location overlooking Chapultepec Park with proximity to some of the city’s most visited sites, including the Museum of Anthropology, National Auditorium, Zócalo central square and the Palace of Fine Arts. Its impressive structure acts as a window to Paseo de la Reforma and is considered a landmark, fully rooted in the urban fabric of the Polanco district.
“Our storied hotel has gone through both a physical and emotional transformation, evolving to meet the needs of today’s discerning travelers,” said Ramon Diago, General Manager of JW Marriott Hotel Mexico City Polanco. “We are delighted to offer guests the perfect place to connect with themselves, each other and the magic of Mexico City, all in an elegant and beautifully modern space.”
The entrance of the hotel has been transformed to welcome guests and in turn, sets the tone for their entire stay. The lobby serves as a connector, much like Pasaje Polanco of the past, linking various elements of the hotel and guest experience seamlessly. It’s not just a transient space but a vibrant hub where guests from diverse backgrounds converge, creating an atmosphere that honours the area’s heritage while embracing its present cosmopolitan allure of the surrounding neighbourhood. Whether guests are there for leisure or business, the lobby becomes a reflection of the vibrant pulse of Polanco, inviting them into an immersive experience that intertwines history, culture and contemporary luxury.
The expanded culinary concepts at the JW Mexico City allow guests to embark on an enticing gastronomic adventure that intertwines exquisite flavours with the history and culture of Mexico City. The programme acts as a passageway through a captivating array of dining and cocktail experiences, meticulously curated to complement the essence of the vibrant neighbourhood.
The new spaces include the Sendero Polanco, inviting guests to delve into a culinary odyssey that celebrates the richness of the gastronomy of Mexico and Latin America. A welcoming atmosphere is created that fuses history, tradition and creativity, inviting everyone to enjoy an experience for the senses. The restaurant will offer a breakfast, lunch and dinner service and aim to provide guests with authentic ingredients alongside, an array of contemporary flavours.
Inspired by the inaugural Mexico City railway in Polanco, ESTACION 29 Cocktail and Wine Bar allows guests to step into an era of nostalgia while enjoying meticulously crafted cocktails and select wines. It serves as a dynamic hub for local talent, showcasing live performances while also highlighting regional offerings through brand takeovers and collaborations. This vibrant space embodies the fusion of nostalgia, diverse cultures, and a celebration of local creativity in both its ambiance and offerings.
The Tahona Mezcal Room was designed to allow guests the chance to immerse themselves in an exclusive, intimate encounter with the enchanting world of mezcal. The beverage programming provides the opportunity to dance through a carefully curated selection of premium, handcrafted mezcals from revered masters across Mexico in a captivating space for up to eight guests.
Additionally, the hotel is pleased to share an additional three culinary experiences are set to debut this spring. Among these eagerly awaited venues are Corsi, an open kitchen concept and Archiebald, an American Steakhouse. These unique establishments, the third of which will be announced at a later date, will all aim to enrich the lobby level with diverse dining options that will guide guests through a gastronomic journey.
