LUXE Travellers with an artistic slant are loving Hilton's Curio Collection; particularly Umbral in Mexico City.
With an architectural heritage dating to 1924, the 59-room hotel makes the most of the original high ceilings, long corridors and tall windows to create grand yet moody spaces that unfold like cinematic set-pieces. Local architect Javier Sanchez, and interior designer Origen, are to thank.
This sense of drama is especially evident in the bedrooms, each preceded by a shadowy ante-chamber that leads through a gold-lined arch into a lofty space dressed in blonde timber, modular furniture, and dripping pendant lamps.
An onsite art gallery of local artists is paired with a music library and cinema. The hotel also boasts a sun-lit rooftop terrace with a heated pool, wellness bar, and awe inspiring city views.
Located in the heart of historic downtown, the city’s most popular attractions are just outside Umbral's front door. LUXE Travellers can take a stroll through Zocalo, the city’s main square and home to government offices, and public gatherings as well as historic sites Templo Mayor, Cathedral, Fine Arts Palace, Latino Tower and Alameda Central Park. Visit the many museums, traditional cantina bars, and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Explore the city at your leisure or consult the hotel's Experience Curator for a truly personalised experience.
