Classic luxury in a colonial building is what visitors can expect of Four Seasons Mexico City, located near the swanky neighborhood of Polanco and the sprawling Chapultepec Park. The proximity of the park offers respite from some of the noisier parts of the city, as does the hotel's own expansive courtyard. Citrus trees and other greenery, tended by the same gardener since the hotel opened, radiate out from a central fountain, and sculptures by Mexican artist José Luis Cuevas add even more atmosphere to the peaceful setting. This sense of refinement extends throughout the property, with Four Seasons' signature service on full display: housekeeping, for example, is performed twice daily.

Four Seasons Mexico City is located in Polanco, an exclusive neighborhood where many of the city's movers and shakers live. Though it's close to all of the capital's action, the hotel feels tucked away—thanks, in part, to its proximity to Chapultepec Park, the largest urban park in the world and the oldest one in North America. Wandering through the park, visitors can enjoy impromptu performances by clowns and troubadours, pedal-boat rides on the lake, close encounters with animals at the zoo, or a deep dive into Mexican history at the world-famous National Museum of Anthropology and History. The neighborhood is also famous for its restaurants, including Pujol and Biko—both on the “World's 50 Best” list—and Quintonil, merely one of “Latin America's 50 Best.”
