For those seeking a refined escape to North America’s largest city, the St. Regis offers traditional luxury and five-star service in a world of apps and cutbacks.

After checking in and enjoying a restful evening, begin your day with a leisurely breakfast at Diana Restaurant located within the hotel, which fittingly overlooks the iconic Diana the Huntress Fountain. From here, take a walk to the National Museum of Anthropology, which is touted as one of the best in the world.  Renowned for its incredibly comprehensive and vast collection, you can truly spend hours here soaking in treasures such as the Aztec sunstone and Mayan relics.

After a couple of hours, you will likely have worked up an appetite. For lunch, head to one of the most famous restaurants in CDMX, Contramar. Be sure to book this hot spot early, as it fills up weeks in advance. The celebrated seafood restaurant is known for its impeccable tuna tostadas and captures the essence of coastal Mexican cuisine. If you can’t get in here, try Entramar, their sister restaurant.

Before returning to the St. Regis, there are many other art museums you can stop by including Museo Jumex, Museo Soumaya, or the Museum of Contemporary Art.

After freshening up at the hotel, it’s time for dinner. One of the most famous restaurants in the country is Pujol, which is an internationally ranked and known for its unique approach to traditional Mexican cuisine in a beautiful space designed by famed architect, Javier Sanchez. If you’re in the mood for something more casual, head to MERCADOROMA, a gourmet food market that has everything from meals to shopping.

Spend your second morning at the Frida Kahlo Museum, also known as La Casa Azul. (Be sure to book these in advance, too.) Wander through the rooms filled with Frida’s personal artifacts and masterpieces, gaining an unparalleled glimpse into her life and work. Be sure to walk around the town surrounding La Casa Azul, Coyocán. Grab an authentic churro at Churreria General de la Republica and some traditional tacos at La Casa de Los Tacos. The streets of this vibrant town are bustling with food, families enjoying the park, and music.

During the afternoon, roam around the famed neighbourhoods of Polanco or Roma. The architectures is stunning, there are plenty of beautiful cafes, and the boutiques are finely appointed. Pop into Xinú Perfumes, Niddo Café, Que Bo!, and the Antara Fashion Hall. After your day out, head back to your elevated oasis for an appointment at the luxurious Remède Spa, which overlooks the CDMX skyline. Then, have dinner at the newly renovated King Cole Bar while listening to live music and sipping elegant cocktails.

For you third day, visiting Chapultepec Castle is a must. The political history of this castle is fascinating, and the views from the elevated vantage point are breathtaking. After your trek up to the castle (it’s a long walk up), Chapultepec Park itself is the ideal place to explore for a leisurely walk or boat ride on the lake.

Returning to the St. Regis Mexico City after each day’s adventures, you will undoubtedly appreciate the impeccable service and luxurious comforts that define this prestigious hotel. Whether experiencing a Mezcal tasting at the King Cole Bar or relaxing in your elegantly appointed private patio, the St. Regis provides a contemporary and tranquil haven amid the city’s nonstop hustle and bustle.
