Bottom Line

The 135-room Live Aqua Mexico City Hotel & Spa is a luxury property in the upscale Bosques de las Lomas neighborhood, far to the southwest of the city center. It's connected to a high-end shopping mall, and guests can drive to the Santa Fe financial district in less than 10 minutes. Rooms and suites are sophisticated and stylish, and come with luxe extras like Nespresso machines and premium bath products. The restaurant and bar get good reviews, and they're as stylish and chic as the rest of the hotel. Other offerings include a full-service spa, modern fitness center, and business center. Travelers who'd prefer to be closer to major tourist attractions could check out the Four Seasons Mexico City, which adds a pool to its Paseo de la Reforma address.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Sophisticated, stylish hotel designed for business travelers, but suitable for leisure guests as well

This modern hotel features sophisticated, stylish design throughout, helping to make it a posh escape that draws a mix of tourists and business guests despite its distance from the bustling heart of Mexico City. Unusual design elements include flowing cloud-like curtains hanging from the high ceiling alongside modern light fixtures. Large black-and-white photos are set high on the walls, and books are used as design features in all sorts of ways. Gray velvet sofas and chairs provide places where guests can gather and hang out, and there are lots of nooks for more private get-togethers. The setting manages to be sophisticated, chic, and cozy all at the same time. Aromatherapy oils create a pleasant mood throughout the common areas, and ambient music adds to the laid-back feeling. The hotel is designed primarily for business travelers with work in the area, but tourists also come here for the luxurious atmosphere and direct link to shopping and restaurants next door. 

Location

Attached to a mall in Bosque de las Lomas, close to Santa Fe financial district

Map of Live Aqua Mexico City Hotel & Spa

This hotel is situated in the upscale Bosques de las Lomas neighborhood in the western part of Mexico City, a seven-minute drive from the Santa Fe financial district. The hotel is linked to the high-end Arcos Bosques mall, offering shops, restaurants, a movie theater, and bowling alley. The area around the hotel is filled with businesses, boutiques, and residences. It is, however, removed from the city center and its tourist attractions. The Zocalo is 45 minutes to an hour away by car, and traffic in Mexico City can be brutal. The renowned National Museum of Anthropology can be reached in 40 minutes by taxi, and is next to Chapultepec Park and the posh Polanco neighborhood. Plan on 90 minutes to reach Mexico City International Airport, though this can vary depending on the time of day.

Rooms

Handsome rooms with flat-screen TVs, Nespresso machines, aromatherapy oils, and luxe bathrooms

Tastefully decorated rooms and suites are modern and sophisticated, with high-end touches such as electronically controlled designer drapery, Nespresso coffeemakers, aromatherapy kits, and feather-top mattresses. Medium-toned wood dressers and night stands are topped with marble, and velvet chairs and a chaise lounge add another layer of luxury. Color schemes are subtle neutrals, accented by teal and purple in some rooms, and oversized black-and-white photographs hang on the walls. Additional amenities include flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, well-stocked minibars, safes, and free Wi-Fi. Sleek bathrooms are covered in marble and feature contemporary fixtures, magnifying mirrors, hairdryers, premium toiletries, and soaking tubs and separate showers. Rubber ducks by the tub add a whimsical touch, and second TVs are set up for a good, long soaking session. Windows in the bathrooms look into the bedrooms, but modest guests can close the blinds. Suites add more space, including separate sitting areas and bathrooms featuring upholstered benches. Robes and slippers are provided. The Presidential Suite is the most luxurious, and offers a dining table that seats 12, plus a marble-topped wet bar, whirlpool tubs, and showers for two.

Features

Restaurant and bar, free breakfast, spa, fitness center, business center, and free Wi-Fi

Designed for business travelers, this hotel also meets the needs of leisure guests with its relatively numerous features. La Cantina restaurant and bar serves modern Mexican cuisine in a sophisticated setting, and guests can watch the chefs in action in the open kitchen. A free breakfast buffet is served daily, and gets great reviews from previous guests for the sheer volume of what's on offer. The lobby bar is a cozy, chic space with cushy gray sofas and arm chairs. A lovely terrace is available when the weather is nice, though as of August 2017 it is no longer set-up for dining. Room service is available. The luxurious full-service spa offers a variety of massages, face and body treatments, and a special hydro-therapy system with a sauna, steam bath, whirlpool, and special showers. The spacious fitness center provides modern cardio and weight-training equipment, as well as free weights. Although there are no windows, the space is well-lit. The hotel's business and technology center offers seven meeting rooms of various sizes plus a casual lounge area. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property.
