Accor Group announced the opening of Novotel Mexico City World Trade Center, a modern hotel in Mexico City, featuring Novotel’s new global design concept. The hotel marks the second flagship for the brand in the region.
Situated in a prime location in front of Mexico City’s World Trade Center, it one the most important business centers in central Mexico and lies near several of the city’s main attractions. This energizing urban neighborhood continues to attract many business and leisure visitors to the city.
“This year marks Novotel’s 20th anniversary in Mexico, and we are incredibly excited to celebrate our continued growth in the market with the opening of Novotel Mexico City World Trade Center, the 34th Accor hotel in the country,” said Javier López Jimenez, vice president of operations, Accor Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. “Novotel Mexico City World Trade Center is a strategic addition to our expanding portfolio allowing us to have greater presence in the vibrant destination of Mexico City, known for its exceptionally rich culture and history, and recognized as one of the most significant business hubs in the region.”
Novotel Mexico City World Trade Center features 106 rooms with impressive views of the city and was created with the brand’s newest vision for modern hotel design. Sello N, a local architecture and design studio based in Mexico City, led the design for all areas of the hotel. Select suites were created based on the global design concept originally conceived for the Novotel brand by Sundokovy Sisters, and adapted by the local design studio for this new flagship. Taking inspiration from the distinctive character of the destination and blending it with contemporary décor, a playful assortment of color palettes, prints and innovative design are visible in different areas of the hotel, with unique co-living spaces embracing lively social surroundings, current trends and timeless comforts.
“Our excellent location and modern and intuitive design appeals to business and leisure travelers that value heartfelt service, comfortable yet stylish accommodations in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere, and hotel offerings that allow guests to make the most of their time during their stay,” said Joan-Francesc Ferrer, general manager, Novotel Mexico City World Trade Center. “I am proud to open Novotel Mexico City World Trade Center, and with our talented team we look forward to welcoming locals and guests.”
