after a monster flight you just want to head to a hotel that you can trust, somewhere that you know exactly what to expect. And we’re talking from experience…rocking up in India, no sleep and no vacancies at the inn. INTENSE. Which is why, when we rocked up in Mexico City for three weeks of traveling, we choose to ease ourselves into the Mexican way of life by spending a couple of nights in the W Mexico City.

Located in the upmarket Polanco district, the W stands alongside fashion boutiques, restaurants, cocktail bars and other big name hotels. After a 12 hour flight it was a relief to finally spot the statement shiny W outside the taxi window. The hotel has just had a revamp, and like the other properties in the W hotel group, the public spaces are all very glitzy and sleek…yes there’s the token disco balls…whilst inside the rooms are all white with the odd splashes of colour coming from soft furnishings and accessories.

We stayed in one of the Spectacular Rooms, the highlight of which was, without doubt, the floor to ceiling windows and views over Mexico City. In-room technology was also impressive as were the toiletries, rain-showers, fluffy robes and big beds. Breakfast is served in the main restaurant, J BY JOSÉ ANDRÉS and it’s a decent healthy spread.
