The St. Regis Mexico City is heir to an enduring legacy of uncompromising luxury. It is the 17th St. Regis Hotel in the world and the first St. Regis to be built in a major city in all of Latin America. Throughout its history of nearly a century, St. Regis Hotels have invariably attracted the most glamorous, creative and intriguing personalities of each era. In New York alone, Colonel Serge Obelensky, the Russian Prince who had been a page at the Czar's court before he escaped the revolution and grew up to marry Alice Astor, was associated with the St. Regis for many years; Marlene Dietrich, William Paley and his wife Barbara ("Babe") lived at The St. Regis New York as did Salvador Dali and his wife Gala.
Colonel Astor died on the Titanic in 1912, but his influence will always be felt at all St. Regis Hotels—an impressive roster that continues to grow with the addition of distinctive properties around the world.
From its signature bespoke St. Regis Butler Service to the hand-painted mural in the clubby King Cole Bar, The St. Regis Mexico City echoes its New York origins. The famed “Bloody Mary” cocktail was first served in New York’s King Cole Bar. Today, each St. Regis Hotel creates its own version of the cocktail, based on the finest local ingredients.
Designed by legendary architect Cesar Pelli and completed in fall 2009, The St. Regis Mexico City rises 31-stories above the corner of the historic Paseo de la Reforma, a magnificent boulevard of architectural splendor, plazas and monuments commemorating Mexico’s storied past.
