Hotel Camino Real – Mexico City


If you like architecture and great design the hotel “Camino Real” is one of the coolest places to stay in México City.


Strategically located in the exclusive financial and commercial zone of Polanco and very close to the Bosque de Chapultepec and from the Rufino Tamayo, Anthropology and History, and Modern Art Museums, and from Chapultepec Castle, a few steps away from beautiful and traditional  Paseo de la Reforma avenue, Camino Real Polanco México is a refuge from the city´s busy life.


Built in an attractive architectonic style, and imagined as a hotel-museum by Architect Ricardo Legorreta, the Camino Real Polanco México Hotel opened to the public on July 25, 1968, combining modern architectural profiles with obvious pre-Hispanic pyramid reminiscences. It has been the headquarters for two soccer world cups and for the Olympic Games, as well as for more than 210 official visits from presidents and members of the monarchy from around the world.
