The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. announced the opening of the St. Regis Mexico City, located on the Paseo de la Reforma boulevard overlooking the Plaza of Diana. The brand’s first downtown hotel in the region, the St. Regis Mexico City features 189 guestrooms and suites each with views of the city, a signature Remède Spa, and three signature restaurants. Owned by Grupo 1818 and designed by Yabu Pushelberg design firm and architect Cesar Pelli, the St. Regis Mexico City is located 30 minutes from Benito Juarez International Airport and a short distance from the city’s Polanco area, the financial district and the landmark Historic Center. The St. Regis Mexico City rises 492 feet above street level with floor-to-ceiling glass panes. Design firm Yabu Pushelberg completed the interiors using bold colors and Mexican-inspired design elements to seamlessly blend contemporary luxury with Mexico’s rich artistic heritage. Each guestroom features a color palette infused with rich accents of greens and purples including custom-made carpets and furniture inspired by Mexico City’s artisans. Many of the materials used by Yabu Pushelberg in the hotel’s design have been crafted locally by traditional Mexican artists including the Onyx mosaics adorning each bathroom and laser-cut silver screens in the hotel’s lobby. In addition, each guestroom includes a 42-inch LCD television with DVD player, a state-of-the-art sound system, a MP3 docking station, and an innovative LCD television recessed behind the bathroom mirror, enabling images to be projected onto a screenless surface.

Dining at The St. Regis Mexico City indulges the senses with diverse culinary offerings ranging from Diana Restaurant, led by Executive Chef Jeff Pelaez, which features a menu of Mediterranean cuisine to specialty cocktails including St. Regis’ signature Bloody Mary and Afternoon Tea in the Decanter Room or at King Cole Bar. Guests are also invited to enjoy a private dining experience on the hotel’s Helipad with breathtaking views of the city below.

I think it looks fantastic especially with the sky reflecting on its glass. Nice contrast with the old fountain too.

Was that Jeff Pelaez who used to work in Four Seasons? I remembered his exquisite food in the restaurant that received the AAA diamond award. Well, good for The St. Regis, beautiful property at all.
