Accor has opened the Sofitel Mexico City Reforma, the first Sofitel-branded property in Mexico and one of the first luxury hotels to open in Mexico City in more than 10 years. 

The hotel, the tallest on the Paseo de la Reforma corridor, has a restored house originally built in 1983 at its base. The structure was incorporated into the design of the 40-story building in order to preserve the city’s architecture and history. 

In addition to the property's 275 guestrooms taking up the building's 15th through 37th floors, the hotel has two restaurants and three bars, the first L’Occitane Spa in a Mexican hotel, a fitness center, an indoor pool and more than 7,000 square feet of meetings and events space. The 36th floor also has the Club Millésime Lounge for guests staying in Club Millésime guestrooms.
 
“The newest Sofitel is a striking flagship for the brand, a one-of-a-kind destination in Mexico City,” said Heather McCrory, CEO of Accor North & Central America. “Mexico has seen tremendous opportunity in the travel and tourism sector. With the opening of Sofitel Mexico City Reforma, we are thrilled to further expand our regional footprint and welcome our 27th hotel in Mexico, with more exciting openings to come.”
 
The hotel is Accor's 120th property in the region. Upcoming projects in the Americas pipeline include the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles, 21c Museum Hotel Chicago – MGallery Hotel Collection, SO/ Los Cabos, Fairmont Costa Canuva on the Riviera Nayarit, and Raffles Boston Back Bay Hotel & Residences.
