Mexico City is always a family favorite. Introduce the kids to spicy Mexican street food, lead them on a tour of Chapultepec Park, or awe them with a journey to the Aztec pyramids. Keep everyone happy on vacation by checking into one of the best kid-friendly hotels in Mexico City, treating the little ones to room service and the adults to poolside margaritas. Even better, they are all bookable with Culture Trip.

Experience family-friendly luxury at Mexico City’s Sheraton Maria Isabel Hotel & Towers. Let the kids splash around in the outdoor swimming pool while you relax in the sauna or enjoy signature cocktails in the lobby bar. Book a table at Amici for a fusion of Italian and Mexican cuisines, or take the family to the Manhattan Deli if you’re in the mood for a casual burger or hot dog. This landmark hotel is conveniently located on Reforma Avenue, so it’s easy to coordinate family trips to Chapultepec Park and into the Zona Rosa.

2. Le Meridien Mexico City

Le Meridien Mexico City was made for luxury-loving families. Even the entry-level Classic Suite has a king bed for the parents and a comfy pull out sofa bed for the kids – but upgrade to the Superior Suite and you’ll have multiple rooms and a dedicated lounge space where the kids (or adults) can chill with some television time. La Gloriosa Restaurant is fun and colorful – a great opportunity to introduce the family to the flavors and spices of Mexican gastronomy.

3. Four Seasons Hotel Mexico City

The Four Seasons Hotel Mexico City needs little introduction because this five-star hotel is the pinnacle of luxury. Although it’s located on Reforma Avenue, the enclosed, hacienda-style layout of the hotel ensures that your stay will always be a quiet one. Swim in the spa pool, dine on pizza and pasta at Il Becco and try world-class sweets and pastries at Pan Dulce. Book into a Premier Terrace Room and enjoy the peace of the central courtyard, or upgrade to the Governor’s Suite if you’re looking for a family vacation that no one’s going to forget in a hurry.

4. Presidente Intercontinental

Awe the whole family with sweeping views of Mexico City from the panoramic windows of the Presidente Intercontinental’s luxury suites. No one’s going hungry at this hotel, with six restaurants and bars serving up Mexican, Italian and French fusion food. The Presidente Intercontinental is located in Polanco, a super-safe district that’s within walking distance of Chapultepec Park and the city’s sprawling National Museum of Anthropology.

5. Galeria Plaza Reforma Mexico City

The four-star Galeria Plaza Reforma Mexico City should have one more star in its rating, just for the exceptional views of the Zona Rosa’s skyline from the rooftop terrace. Lounge on the terrace with ice-cold drinks or a cheeky beer, then jump in the rooftop pool to cool off. Rooms are colorful, modern and fantastically spacious, while the hotel’s Almara Restaurant serves up signature “Mex-iterranean” dishes that fuse Mediterranean flair with Mexican spice.

6. The St. Regis Mexico City

Take the hassle out of organizing your family holiday by taking advantage of the 24/7 personalized butler service that the St. Regis Mexico City is renowned for. Personal butlers unpack your suitcase while you enjoy a welcome drink in the lobby, before escorting the family to luxurious suites rising 31 floors above Reforma Avenue. The children can spend the day at the kids’ club on floor 15 while adults take in views of the city from their jacuzzi or enjoy a private in-room fine dining experience.

7. Fiesta Americana Reforma

Expect a seamless self-check-in service at Fiesta Americana Reforma before settling into your family’s Fiesta Club Room or suite where you’ll enjoy the hotel’s comfiest and most spacious accommodation options. We all know it can be difficult finding a restaurant that the whole family loves, but at the hotel’s international Cafe Reforma you’ll all enjoy the ever-changing all-you-can-eat breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets.

8. Camino Real Polanco

Camino Real is a Polanco institution. This grand, five-star hotel was built back in 1968 for the Mexico City Olympics and it’s remained a stylish feature of the city skyline ever since. Camino Real Polanco is one for the culture-loving family: the lobby and corridors are home to contemporary artworks, while the luxury hotel is just a short walk from the Museum of Anthropology and Chapultepec Castle. Spend the day out exploring Mexico City, then either share tapas at the hotel’s Spanish-style restaurant, enjoy sushi and ramen at the Morimoto Japanese restaurant or indulge in the finest Black Angus beef cuts at the aptly-named Beef Bar.
