Introducing Alexander Hotel

March 27, 2024 by Hidden Doorways

Towering over Mexico City’s lusciously green Parque de la Luz is 428 feet of architectural magnificence known as Torre Virreyes – or ‘the Dorito’ as it is colloquially called nodding to its unusual angular silhouette. A design icon from the outside (having been one of the final projects by esteemed Mexican architect, Teodoro González de León), and no less captivating once toes are over its threshold inside, for the five-star hotel hotspot The Alexander lies in wait.

A Mexican megapolis awash with charming cantinas, buzzy backstreets littered with street food stalls and mezcal and margarita bars, as well as storied museums aplenty, Mexico’s capital is known far and wide for its energy and allure. Stroll for a leisurely ten minutes from the city’s principal avenue though – Paseo de la Reforma that was originally built as a route for the Emperor’s residence at Chapultepec to the National Palace – and you’ll find yourself in the laidback but luxe aristocratic neighborhood of Lomas Virreyes, home to this high-end hotel to know. One of the most exclusive and affluent areas in the whole city, a stay here is to rub shoulders with CDMX’s elite and escape the city, kicking back in a suite more chic than anybody could wish for. It also happens to be the financial district making The Alexander a no-brainer for those visiting the city on business.

The suites are vast, with the ‘smallest’ starting at 570 square feet and the largest measuring at a capacious 893 square feet complete with windows so large that the space feels limitless. Beneath is Chapultepec Park (one of the largest urban green spaces in the whole of the Americas) and beyond are cityscape views that put the hustle and bustle within touching distance of its king-sized bed. Bang & Olufsen speakers promise epic acoustics and aesthetic kudos, Lutron lighting systems give guests complete control of ambient lighting, automated drapery means those staying can say goodnight to the city at the touch of a button, and Byredo toiletries are the ultimate signature scent for the design-conscious traveler.

And on those bathrooms — sleek sheets of glass meet gleaming marble to give rise to a spa-like sanctuary without even having to leave the room. When guests do though, The Alexander’s two spa cabins and steam rooms offering up La Prairie facials no less will make sure any stresses and strains melt away.

Mexico City’s epicenter is, as mentioned, just a trot away, but lean into The Alexander’s luxury guest services to make a stay here all the more sublime. Private chauffeurs in prestigious cars are a request away to escort tired feet to the city’s best restaurants, galleries, and Polanco’s designer boutiques, but on days where there’s desire to retreat, keep things close to home and the hotel will have you covered. Open the day with a yoga or a personal trainer session, head down to its sophisticated Caviar bar where its team will prepare a perfectly paired gastronomy meets mixology experience, and then roll into alternative energy session with a sound healer before indulging in 24-hour room service dinner in bed with movie playing out on the room’s 70-inch television.

A taste of the extraordinary suspended above a city that lives life at an intoxicating pace, The Alexander is for those who want to experience Mexico City through a mega aesthetic lens where every design wish and luxury whim is seen, heard, and felt…
