The W Hotel attracts a very eclectic mix of visitors. The business traveler looking to connect and grow their network, the Latin American startup founder looking for comfort and attention, as well as artists who choose the Mexican capital as an important part of their tour.
Amenities: The W offers travelers the use of an authentic temazcal (a sweat lodge made of adobe), as well as traditional saunas. The hotel is also pet-friendly, although it does require a small extra fee.
Business and events tips: An experienced traveler with miles under their belt may have an SPG membership. Booking on Starwood’s websites could save a charge for a fast Internet connection, for example.
What’s nearby: The W is in the heart of the Polanco hotel zone, next door to the JW Marriott and steps away from the InterContinental and Hyatt. Thus, the business traveler can come to conferences held in those venues, but without having to put up with their enormous dimensions. It is also just a few blocks from restaurants that offer some of the best gastronomic experiences in the city, such as QUuntonil and Pujol, etc.
