Casa Polanco


Overview

Nestled in CDMX's upscale neighborhood, Casa Polanco is a design-forward, über-luxe boutique hotel that feels like you are staying at a friend's chic private home. This 19-suite property is poised to become the new hot spot opening in February 2022.

Originally built in the 1930’s as a private residence and owned in the following years by some of Mexico City’s most prominent aristocratic families, Casa Polanco has a mix of modern and classic Spanish colonial revival architecture and is Hamak Group's newest hotel.

The owners undertook a careful four-year restoration, preserving and bringing many architectural features to their original splendor. The original house was built in the 1940s in a neocolonial Polanco style that some identify as Californian or Spanish Colonial Revival. Architect Claudio Gantuz took on the restoration and built a beautifully modern and sober building next door that blends seamlessly with the mansion through a wood and glass corridor. Mexico City is cosmopolitan, vibrant, and full of culture. Interior design mother-daughter team Monica Romo and Monica Novelo chose classic and retro furniture. The designers visited Mexico’s antique shops and bazaars to find rare original ‘30s and ‘40s accessories and art celebrating Mexico's personality, heritage and culture.

Just steps from Casa Polanco, world-famous luxury brands line the famed Avenida Presidente Masaryk, the premier shopping avenue at the heart of this prestigious neighborhood and the most expensive street in the Americas. Often compared to Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive and New York City’s Fifth Avenue, Avenida Presidente Masaryk has one of Mexico’s highest concentrations of luxury boutiques, with the most upscale restaurants, sprawling mansions, and diplomatic embassies in CMDX. Polanco is also known for its numerous renown cultural institutions like Nuevo Polanco’s modernist Museo Soumaya with its vast Rodin collection, the Rufino Tamayo Gallery, Teatro Telcel, the peaceful Plaza Uruguay park, and one of Latin America's largest aquariums.

Beyond the shopping mecca of Polanco, Mexico City is brimming with art, culture, history and award-winning cuisine. From the Templo Mayor, a 13th century Aztec temple, to the Palacio Nacional (which houses historic Murals by famed Mexican artist Diego Rivera), to the baroque Catedral Metropolitana, Mexico City’s incredibly rich history is on display at evert turn. Art lovers will flock to the Frida Kahlo Museum, the home of world-renown architect Luis Barragán (and this many works throughout the city), and the myriad art galleries and markets filled with local works.

The city is also home to incredible cuisine and restaurants that are widely considered the best in the world- including award-winning Pujol, Quintonil, and the ever-popular Contramar. While CDMX is constantly buzzing with activity, there is respite to be found in the stunning Bosque de Chapultepec Park, a beautiful and calm natural haven in the midst of one of the liveliest cities in the world.

Accommodations

The newly-renovated into a 19-suite property, Casa Polanco is a blend of old and new, intimate and spacious, and is imbued with an exciting, dynamic energy, fusing local culture with the highest of international hospitality standards. The property is an intriguing study in contrasting colors and styles, where a spacious, whitewashed room is offset by a large wall entirely covered in rich green hanging ivy, and rich maroon-colored carvings and artwork stand out against soaring white walls and black iron-wrought balconies. All suites boast views looking onto Casa Polanco's interior garden or Lincoln Park.
