Hilton has announced plans for four new hotels in Mexico. The new projects include the company’s first Canopy hotel in the country, as well as the first Hilton Hotels & Resorts property in Monterrey and the first two Curio Collection properties in Mexico City.
In Mexico City, Hilton is planning to debut its first two properties under its Curio Collection of boutique hotels, both of which are set to open this year: Umbral and Hotel Lafontaine. Umbral will debut this spring in the city’s downtown area as part of a program to restore historic buildings. The property will have 59 guestrooms and a rooftop bar and restaurant overlooking a number of Mexico City landmarks, such as the Metropolitan Cathedral, the County Hall and El Palacio de Hierro Department Store.
Hotel Lafontaine, meanwhile, is set to open at the end of 2019 in the luxury neighborhood of Polanco. The hotel will have 34 guestrooms, a bar and restaurant and an open-air courtyard, plus access to nearby restaurants, boutiques and museums within walking distance.
Also opening in late 2019, the Canopy by Hilton Cancun La Isla will mark the lifestyle brand’s first hotel in Mexico and second in Latin America. It will have 175 rooms, neighborhood-based programming and a rooftop pool, and it will be set in Cancun’s largest shopping center, the Isla Mall. The property will be next to the mall’s luxury wing, which has brands such as Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton.
In Monterrey, Hilton is planning to open the 202-guestroom Hilton Monterrey Valle Oriente in late 2021 as part of a mixed-use development at the base of Cerro de la Silla. The hotel will have access to fine dining and shopping in the area, as well as direct elevator access to Galerias Valle Oriente. Also nearby will be El Palacio de Hierro, the largest department store in Latin America. For meetings and events, the property will have one of the largest ballrooms in the city, Hilton said.
Hilton said it currently has a portfolio of more than 60 hotels in Mexico, with nearly 30 additional projects in development.
