Where to Stay In Mexico City on a Higher Budget

Mexico is one of the most affordable and convenient destinations for American tourists, so you can always find something that suits you. But if you’ve had enough of low budget options and want to enjoy a luxurious experience of Mexico City, here are a few places that can provide you with that pleasure.



This is one of the exclusive neighborhoods in Mexico City, situated in the western part of the greatest boulevard in Mexico, Passeo de Reforma, at the entrance to the well-known Chapultepec Park. Polanco is basically Mexico City’s Beverley Hills. It is also a diplomatic neighborhood, full of various embassies.

You can find many luxury hotels in this part of the city, many of which overlook the beautiful park, the biggest green zone in the city. One of the famous sights you mustn’t miss while in Mexico City, the impressive National Museum of Anthropology, is also near. The area is full of fancy restaurants and elegant shops usually bustling with members of Mexican high society. Avenida Presidente Masaryk is the main artery of the neighborhood, being full of chic boutiques, many of which have ornate doorways carved in stone, reminiscent of the 1930s’ California-style architecture.


If you want to be in the center of things, Condesa is the place to be. This is one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Mexico City, full of designer luxe boutiques, chic gourmand restaurants, and amazing night life. It is particularly popular among the so-called “fashionistas” and “trend-setters”. This is a trendy, urban part of the city ideal for modern young people. It has a lot of vintage shops, rooftop bars and also beautiful green areas.

It is also a residential area in the first place, so you can have both the tourist and the local experience while staying there. It is bordering with similar, maybe a bit less upscale, but equally interesting to explore the neighborhood of Roma. Condesa is also full of art galleries you should explore. It is a laid-back, yet quite a posh neighborhood where you can find beautiful boutique hotels and luxurious apartments for rent.

Santa Fe

No, not Santa Fe, New Mexico, there’s a part of Mexico City with the same name. If you are not too eager to immerse yourself with the local life and experience Mexico City first hand, but prefer a bit of distance and privacy, the luxurious, predominantly business area of Santa Fe is perfect for you.

It is located some 5 miles away from the city center, which means you will likely have to drive to reach the city center. It is home to many big banks, international companies, and University. There is also the famous huge Centro Santa Fe shopping mall, with around a 500 stores in total, and a beautiful hotel with the capacity of around 450 rooms. It is actually the largest shopping mall in the whole of Mexico.

This is a beautiful, modern and new neighborhood, mostly full of young successful professional and businesspeople. It is also full of luxurious hotels, such as Hilton Santa Fe, probably the hotel with the best pool in the city, or Westin Santa Fe, significantly smaller, boutique hotel, yet equally beautiful and luxurious.

Splurging on a trip to Mexico City may sound a bit wasteful, but if you do not invest in experiences you will remember your whole life, what do you work for?
