Ritz-Carlton will make its Mexico City debut as part of the recently announced Chapultepec Uno mixed-use project, which will be the second-tallest building in Mexico. The 153-room Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City, will open in 2019 on floors 36 through 47 of the 58-story skyscraper.

The hotel promises unobstructed views of Chapultepec Park from the development's location on Avenida Reforma and Circuito Interior in the city's booming financial district. A club lounge and a spa are among the luxury amenities planned for the hotel.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with Thor Urbana Capital and Heldan Hotels & Resorts to expand our presence in the Caribbean and Latin America, particularly in Mexico City - an epicenter of commerce and culture," said Herve Humler, Ritz-Carlton president and COO. "Mexico remains one of the largest and most important international markets for our company."

Ritz-Carlton currently has seven properties in the Latin America and Caribbean region, including one in Mexico, the Ritz-Carlton, Cancún. Properties also have been announced for Panama City, Panama (2016), and Los Cabos, Mexico (2017).
