Barceló Hotel Group has opened a five-star, flagship hotel in the heart of Mexico City. The Barceló México Reforma has 500 guestrooms and meeting and event space for up to 800 people.
“With 21 hotels, we already have a strong presence in Mexico, but it has taken us some time to reach the capital,” says Juan Perez Sosa, senior vice-president of Sales & Marketing in the United States. “We are proud to establish our presence in Mexico City with such a superb hotel. It will be a pleasure to demonstrate our extensive expertise in the urban hospitality industry, which we have been developing over the course of many years in major Latin American and European cities.”
The property is Barceló’s first urban hotel in Mexico. It is located on Paseo de la Reforma, a dynamic shopping, culture, tourism and business area that has experienced a real estate boom in recent years thanks to the construction of large skyscrapers and the restoration of classic buildings that blend modernism with contemporary architectural styles.
The property was completely renovated in 2015. It features a buffet restaurant, a steakhouse, lobby bar, wellness offerings, a sports bar and lounge, and 26 meeting and event rooms.
