When you visit, Mexico City, you may want to stay at the Intercontinental Presidente Hotel. It is located at Calle Eliseos, 218.
The 42-story hotel looms over the Polanco neighborhood.
It is located on Bosque Chapultepec — or Chapultepec Park in English — in the upscale area.
The location next to Chapultepec Park makes you feel you are in a suburban area though you are smack dab in a city of nearly nine million inhabitants. Being next to the Park, considered the city’s lung, means you benefit from lush trees removing carbon dioxide from the air in a city criticized for air pollution.
You will be greeted by this statue when you arrive at the Presidente Intercontinental.
The expansive, updated lobby makes you feel as though you are entering one of the grandest hotels in the Western Hemisphere.
Front desk staff provided a smooth, efficient check-in and a room on the 41st Floor with a “park view”.
The room was modern and sophisticated. The room featured light gray walls; charcoal wallpaper lined a fourth wall providing chic accent.
You will enjoy watching a wide variety of channels on a wall-mounted 49″ remote-controlled LG television.
There was a king-size bed with luxurious, crisp white sheets.
Agraria face and bath soap, shampoo and conditioner was left out, allowing you to have a spa-like experience.
In this environmentally-conscious age, Intercontinental has jumped on the bandwagon. Cards throughout the room encourage you to help the save the environment. So, if you want towels changed every day, make sure to leave the card out that says “Please change my towels”. The same goes for your bed linens. If you want those changed, you’re asked to leave a card on your bed notifying the cleaning person.
If you like shopping, the hotel lies just a few blocks away from Presidente Masaryk Avenue (the Avenue was named after a former President of Czhecoslavakia) where you will find many upscale stores including Cartier and Chanel.
