Make yourself at home at one of our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Mexico City, and in no time you’ll be prowling the taco stands of the Condesa neighborhood and identifying Aztec artifacts at the National Anthropology Museum.
A metro ride from our Mexico City hotels drops you in Zócalo square, the epicenter of Mexican society. You can sip a café con leche on a plaza rooftop restaurant for bird’s-eye views of the opulent Metropolitan Cathedral and the colonial National Palace, seat of the Mexican government. See if you can catch a glimpse of ancient Aztec temple ruins sandwiched between the two. Show your ID to the National Palace guards for free entry into the courtyard to view life-sized murals by artist Diego Rivera.
Our Mexico City hotels are close to the walkable neighborhoods of Roma and Condesa, where hip cafes surround pocket parks. Watch for lines of locals angling for lunch at some of the city’s best hole-in-the-wall taco joints. These tiny tacos are hard to resist—and each costs only a few pesos. For a traditional sit-down meal, head downtown to legendary Café Tacuba or La Opera, two of the city’s historic restaurants. Or, for an equally atmospheric setting at half the price, dine at the Sanborns, a Mexican diner in the landmark House of Tiles mansion. After a good night’s sleep at one of our Mexico City hotels, guests head to Chapultepec Park to join joggers on the trek up to the castle. The views from the castle terrace take in the capital’s main road, the Paseo de la Reforma, with swirls of cars circling the Angel of Independence monument.
