The Hyatt Regency is located at a string of luxury hotels in Mexico City’s best neighborhood. The Hyatt Regency Mexico City, the Intercontinental Mexico City, the JW Marriott Mexico City and the W Hotel Mexico City are all next to each other – that is stunning in North America’s biggest city.
My Uber driver still had trouble finding the hotel despite Waze and Google Maps directions – that was quite unexpected for such a landmark area.
The building clearly has seen better days from the outside but the interior is renovated and the lobby area looks just lovely. There are clearly a few design elements too many but the restaurant area gets a lot of natural light from the sky light.
The room itself was functional and everything worked exactly the way I’d anticipate it.
The bathroom was new and the shower had perfect pressure.
The air conditioning worked without any audible sound and cooled the room to the set temperature in minutes.
The mattress was too soft – an issue I have with
most many Hyatt hotels.
The Premium Internet (complimentary for Platinum members) was super fast (3Mbit+) at most times and still rather fast during the busy evening hours.
The Polanco neighborhood offers a lot of food and drink options but most stand out for their rather good design not value. Many restaurants have San Francisco (and higher) prices for food that’s just ok. The neighborhoods of Condensa, Hippodrome and Roma are much better for the curious food and coffee explorer.
Still Polanco is a lovely place with calm streets, many old trees and a general ‘savior vivre’ atmosphere.
Given the time constraints I did not get to check out the other facilities of the hotel – but it has three (!) tennis courts and a gym and pool.
