Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Trinity Investments, LLC and Terra Investments S.R.L.C.V. announced the debut of the first Le Méridien Hotel in Mexico City with the opening of Le Méridien Mexico City. Situated at Paseo de la Reforma 69 in the heart of the city’s vibrant financial and cultural district, Le Méridien Mexico City combines timeless chic design and a love of the arts and cuisine, offering travellers a distinctive and compelling experience.
“The opening of Le Méridien Mexico City is part of Starwood’s aggressive expansion strategy in Latin America marking the 71st Starwood hotel in the region and the seventh in Mexico City,” said Osvaldo Librizzi, Co-President of the Americas, Starwood Hotels & Resorts. “We’re thrilled to bring Le Méridien to Mexico City, which continues to be a preferred destination for business and pleasure.”
“Since being acquired by Starwood more than six years ago, Le Méridien has undergone a comprehensive brand re-launch,” said Brian Povinelli, Global Brand Leader, Le Méridien & Westin. “The brand boasts the strongest portfolio ever in its forty year history and the debut of Le Méridien in Mexico City, which is a hub for style and creativity, marks another key milestone in our transformation.”
Le Méridien Mexico City features 160 rooms – all suites – with breathtaking skyline views, timeless chic design and the brand’s signature Le Méridien Bed. The hotel also houses a state-of-the-art fitness center, pool, and C’est la Vie— a full-service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, offering a unique culinary experience for guests and locals alike.
“We are excited to bring the Le Méridien brand to our hotel, our guests, our employees, and Mexico City,” said Ryan Donn, Managing Director of Trinity Investments. “The brand epitomizes the sophistication and style that Mexico City, as a world gateway city, exudes.”
Le Méridien Mexico City features the newly-developed Le Méridien Hub™ experience which re-interprets the traditional lobby into a social gathering place for creative people to converse, debate, and exchange. Le Méridien Hub offers both guests and locals a creative atmosphere where contemporary, curated artwork sets the environment. Le Méridien Hub further builds on the brand’s award-winning arrival experience and coffee culture, curated by Le Méridien brand’s Cultural Curator Jérôme Sans. Le Méridien arrival consists of four elements: large-scale artwork in high impact areas to reset the mind and stimulate dialogue and curiosity; the sensory experience, illustrated through Le Méridien signature scent, sound and use of light, creating a unique and distinctive atmosphere; UNLOCK ART™ programme, featuring LM100 ™ artist designed key card collections that not only offer access to the guestroom but also to Le Méridien affiliated contemporary cultural centers in the city; and a 24-hour soundtrack curated by Sans.
