Mexico City's Romantic Hotel


Honeymooners in Mexico City should opt to stay in one of the city’s romantic boutique hotels when visiting. The venerable De Cortes is such a place. Tucked into a colonial building, just steps from major historic sites, it boasts Old World charm while delivering modern-day amenities. From the outside, the two-story hotel resembles a small church while inside the atmosphere invokes near reverence as vestiges of a long-gone era become evident. Rooms overlook a central courtyard which serves as the venue for outdoor dining and drinks. Complimentary continental breakfast is offered daily.

Tucked into a building dating from 1620, the hotel echoes with touches of the past, yet it delivers modern-day comforts. The building once served as lodging for wandering monks and after several reincarnations it has surfaced in its present form as a romantic oasis for honeymooners - of all ages. The public areas are dotted with original 18th century sculptures and 19th century paintings, highlighting an unexpected treasure trove of art in this modern megalopolis.

The popular 1620 Restaurant dishes up a fusion of haute Mexican and contemporary cuisine indoors surrounded by rich detailed wood and original 17th century stone masonry. Alfresco dining is available in a courtyard setting.

For some R&R after touring city sights, the on-site spa offers facials, massages and a steam room. By day, the picturesque El Cielo roof-top bar offers a private retreat with comfy lounges, sun umbrellas and cool drinks. By night, it beckons with soft candlelight, trendy music, tall cold drinks, sushi, tapas and some of the best views in town.

Rooms are tastefully decorated and feature contemporary décor with hardwood floors, flat-screen satellite TV, a coffee maker, mini-bar and in-room safe.

This centrally located hotel serves as the perfect launching pad from which to visit some of Mexico City's many interesting sites such as: Franz Meyer Museum; Bellas Artes/Palace of Fine Arts; the Zocalo; the Historic Center which was once the hub of the Aztec Empire, and Parque Alameda, the capital’s oldest park and scene of some of the city’s most important events...to this day.
