Fantastic Stay at Hyatt Regency Mexico City

Hyatt Regency Mexico City offers a unique infusion of Eastern and Western influences, with Asian elements sprinkled throughout the property. Not only does this Latin American-Asian fusion set the Hyatt Regency apart from its Polanco-area neighbors, but it’s popular with leisure travelers and business travelers.

Though we were in the heart of one of Mexico City’s tastiest gastronomic districts, the hotel’s three restaurants (especially the Japanese plates at Yoshimi, as I’ve written earlier), excellent Sunday brunch at Rulfo (read here) as well as Amado, a pastry shop, are worth sampling.

When we entered to the lobby of the hotel, we were in awe of the spaciousness and the striking architectural details. We were welcomed by our butler, Francisco since I have informed the hotel ahead of time of our arrival and he was there waiting for our arrival early in the morning. He helpfully took our luggage and went up to the Executive Club floor to check-in. While check-in was occurring, Francisco took our beverage orders (agua fresca, orange juice, tea, or coffee) and the whole check-in process took at most five minutes. We were escorted by Francisco with our luggage to our suite.

My suite was lovely. Decorated in neutral shades of gray and cream, it feels like an upscale home. We had a large vase filled with gorgeous fresh-cut oriental hybrid lilies set on a large marble coffee table that filled its strong scent in the living room. There is a marble wet bar on the side of the living room outfitted with a water kettle and a Nespresso machine in case we need to be caffeinated. The bedroom had a large king bed and a burnt orange chaise set near the window for a spectacular view of Mexico City. The marble bathroom was dreamy with the gray and white marble tones, a large soaking tub and a standing shower. The room is pin-drop quiet during the night for a good night’s rest and the bed was comfy.

The suite includes breakfast at the Executive Club Lounge. Cups of good coffee were poured (or you could request a pot of tea) and we helped ourselves with a variety of items buffet style. Slices of smoked trout and salmon were available, various cheeses, fresh salad, lots of fresh cut fruit (my favorite were the sweet and ripened papaya and watermelon, giving me a preview of summer – though it’s not happening at New York City). There were delicious viennoiserie and several types of bread to choose from. There’s even some scrambled eggs, bacon, breakfast sausages, and even vegetarian chilaquiles were available. Besides all of the food, what I truly enjoyed the most was the daily rotation of agua frescas that always felt refreshing and never too sweet to start my mornings.

You know you have excellent service when you casually talk to Francisco about nearby eateries and things to do, and then talk about the awesome view of Mexico City from here at the Executive Club Lounge. Twenty minutes after the request, lo and behold I’m standing on the platform of the restricted area of the helipad and in awe, accompanied by the head of security and the manager of the Executive Club eyeing us vigilantly, to photograph and take in the panoramic view of the sprawling Mexico City and the hazy lines of the surrounding mountains. It was a brief five minutes that I truly enjoyed and appreciated that the staff done for us.

Overall, I cannot ask for a better stay. The food from all of the restaurants and even at the Executive Club were very good to excellent. The staff from all parts of the hotel were very helpful and friendly to us. Given to my crazy request mentioned earlier, they go to great lengths to make you happy (within reason) and the room was perfect. I would go stay there again in a heartbeat when I come back to Mexico City.
