“We are delighted to welcome the Hilton Mexico City Reforma to our Hilton Worldwide portfolio.  The opening of this Hilton Hotel in such an important city is a significant step in further solidifying our expansion efforts in Latin America,” commented Danny Hughes, senior vice president, Caribbean, Mexico, and Latin America, for Hilton Worldwide.  “We look forward to continuing our growth efforts in the country and welcoming both business and leisure guests to experience all that Hilton has to offer.” 

Strategically located at a gateway to the city’s business district and Reforma Avenue, the Hilton Hotel at Avenida Juarez 70, Colonia Centro, is just a stone’s throw from major corporations and financial institutions.  Just 15 minutes from the international airport, the magnificent property with heliport is also close to all that Mexico City’s historic center has to offer, including everything from the Palacio Nacional and the cathedral to a variety of museums and theaters, making it the ideal choice for both business and leisure travelers.

“We are proud to welcome another Hilton hotel to this flourishing destination,” Dave Horton, Global Head – Hilton Hotels, said. “The Hilton Mexico City Reforma is a great addition to the Hilton brand and representative of our wide array of offerings for the leisure and business traveler.”

Formerly known as a Sheraton, the already stunning property has undergone a series of upgrades to incorporate Hilton brand standards.

For the perfect meeting environment, the Hilton Mexico City Reforma is home to the largest hotel convention center in the city.  The hotel offers nearly 45,000 square feet of meeting space, featuring a versatile convention center with 15 meeting rooms, including pillar-less spaces, and capacity for up to 5,000 guests.  The property also features a state-of-the-art business center where guests can access an array of business services including high-speed Internet access, fax machine, secretarial services, and more.

After a long day, the city center Hilton Mexico City Reforma helps business travelers relax with a 5,015 square foot spa and 3,100 square foot fitness center, plus indoor and outdoor swimming pools. 

Dining options are plentiful as they tempt palates with variety and creativity displayed across three restaurants, a lobby lounge and a wine bar.  El Cardenal Restaurant provides a distinctive menu of Mexican and colonial cuisine in a comfortable ambiance, Los Dones Restaurant specializes in buffet dining and international fare in a casual relaxing atmosphere, and Terraza Alameda delivers delicious comfort food complemented by unforgettable views of the historic center from the outdoor terrace designed to replicate Alameda Park.  Guests can enjoy a refreshing drink at the hotel’s stylish Lobby Lounge or indulge in a wine tasting extravaganza at Sedevino Wine Bar, where travelers can choose from a wide selection of internationally recognized wines.
