What’s the best neighborhood in Mexico City to stay in?

Considering three of the hotel options below are all located within a block of each other in the same neighborhood, we’re going to say Zona Rosa (aka the Pink Zone). 

There are a ton of things to do in Mexico City at night, and most of them are here in Zona Rosa. From LGBTQ+ friendly nightclubs and bars to art museums and an epic food scene, Zona Rosa has it all. 

That said, Zona Rosa isn’t the only great neighborhood, and you’ll find similar excitement in Polanco and the Historic Center of Downtown CDMX (both of which are also mentioned below).

What are the safest areas in Mexico City to stay?

Mexico City is safe, but like any city, crime and accidents occur. All the neighborhoods mentioned below are among the safest in the city.

The St. Regis, which is owned by the Marriot group, is arguably the best luxury hotel in Mexico City. Located along the Paseo de la Reforma, the 31-story hotel towers regally over the nearby Chapultepec Park.

If the St. Regis is out of your price range, the Sofitel Mexico City Reforma is hardly a block away. The architecture of the Sofitel is nothing short of stunning, with green glass panes flanked by white stone panels, resulting in a high-contrast look that’s as eye-catching as it is unique.

The Sofitel offers a gorgeous view of the surrounding city, while its artful interior is equally as pleasing. Among a host of amenities, you’ll find three high-end restaurants and two cocktail bars.

The JW Marriott Hotel Mexico City Santa Fe (we know, it’s a mouthful) is a bit further from the center of Mexico City, but the silver lining is that it’s more affordable than our first two options. 

On the other hand, if you’re visiting Mexico City for business, you’ll be happy to know that the hotel is smack dab in the middle of the business center (by the way, a Fora Advisor can personalize your trip for business, pleasure or a bit of both).

Oh, and don’t let the price drop fool you. This Marriott is still one of the best hotels in Mexico City, with comfy modern rooms, spas and two high-class restaurants, the Quattro Gastronmia Italiana and Cua.
