16 Mar Wilson Associates Debuts Sofitel Mexico City
Global interior architecture firm Wilson Associates is pleased to unveil the interior design narrative of the newly opened Sofitel Mexico City Reforma. Located on Paseo de la Reforma, Sofitel Mexico City Reforma, is the first luxury hotel to open in Mexico City in more than a decade. Wilson Associates’ Dallas studio led the design of the 275 luxurious guest rooms, a Sofitel Spa with L’Occitane, state-of-the-art fitness center, and over 7,000 square feet of meetings and events space.
Drawing inspiration from the Sofitel brand’s French roots, as well as the rich culture and history of Mexico City, the design team created an immersive experience for hotel guests and local visitors alike –– highlighting the vibrant Mexican culture within a chic, French context. Sofitel Mexico City showcases interiors inspired by two iconic architects from the 20th Century: Swiss-born French architect Le Corbusier and Mexican architect Luis Barragan. Representing the unique aesthetic of these two masters, Sofitel Mexico City embodies characteristics of the Modernist Movement through rich color palettes, spatial design and art curation.
Guests experience a grand arrival upon entering Sofitel Mexico City Reforma, which neighbors the iconic Angel of Independence monument –– welcomed by surrounding views of the Mexico City skyline on the lobby level on the 14th floor, where they can proceed to the next floor via a sculptural staircase. The design team drew inspiration from a 35-millimeter film reel to conceive the geometric look of the staircase. Ascending up the tower, Sofitel Mexico City Reforma features 275 stylishly appointed guest rooms – 219 Superior and Luxury Rooms and 56 Suites – located on the 15th through 37th floors, all with unparalleled views of Mexico City. Guestrooms are dressed in serene and cool hues with playful touches of pink and blue, and complemented by contrasting materials that include textured walls, wood paneling and marble finishes.
Designed to maximize functionality without compromising comfort, guest rooms are thoughtfully appointed with touches such as L’Occitane amenities and self-serve Nespresso coffee machines. The guest rooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing the Mexico City skyline. Technologically intuitive features include Bluetooth connectivity and automated curtains revealing sweeping views at the touch of a button. The hotel also features the Imperial Suite, located on the 37th floor, with over 3,300 square feet of living space, including a separate living room and dining room as well as floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the entire suite.
Sofitel Mexico City Reforma is also home to the first L’Occitane Spa within a hotel in Mexico. The Sofitel Spa with L’Occitane features exclusive treatments, including stimulating body massages and rejuvenating facial treatments, especially designed with music and fragrances to create an all-encompassing holistic experience. An indoor swimming pool surrounded by living green walls, is located on the 38th floor, as well as a 24-hour fitness center.
With a total of approximately 5,000 square feet of meetings and events space located on the 40th floor of the building with a spectacular 360-degree view of the city, and over 1,900 square feet of meeting rooms on the 13th floor, Sofitel Mexico City Reforma is set to host a variety of social events and business meetings for up to 400 people.
