Accor announced the opening of Sofitel Mexico City Reforma on Paseo de la Reforma in the capital city.
The hotel features 275 guest rooms, two dining experiences and three bars, a Sofitel Spa with L'Occitane, fitness center and indoor pool as well as more than 7,000 square feet of meetings and events space.
"We are honored to celebrate the continued growth of Accor's luxury and lifestyle brands in North & Central America with the official opening of the first Sofitel in Mexico, Sofitel Mexico City Reforma,” said Heather McCrory, CEO of Accor North & Central America. “The newest Sofitel is a striking flagship for the brand, a one-of-a-kind destination in Mexico City that will undoubtedly charm the most discerning luxury travelers and chic locals."
Situated on Paseo de la Reforma, and neighboring the emblematic Angel of Independence monument, guests experience a grand arrival upon entering Sofitel Mexico City Reforma.
At the base of the hotel sits a restored house originally built in 1983; the historic structure was incorporated into the modern design of the 40-story building in order to preserve the city's architecture and history, resulting in a dramatic and striking exterior built upon both contemporary and classic architecture and design styles.
"We open our doors in one of the largest cities in the world, and one of the most emblematic destinations, ready to offer all who visit a part of our unique French and Mexican essence,” said Sylvain Chauvet, General Manager, Sofitel Mexico City Reforma. This fusion of cultures is embedded within the Sofitel DNA; ingeniously combining the essence of each destination with the French spirit of art de vivre of the brand.”
