MALLORCA — With 21 hotels already in Mexico, Barcelo Hotel Group has signed an agreement to purchase its first in the country’s capital – Mexico City.
Subject to certain terms and government approval, the agreement includes the purchase of a five-star hotel with 500 rooms on the renowned Avenida Reforma. Barcelo Mexico Reforma is expected to join the company this August once all terms and government approvals have been resolved.
Avenida Reforma, considered to be one of the most dynamic areas in Mexico City, has experienced strong real estate growth in recent years due to the construction of skyscrapers and the restoration of buildings.
The property, which was completely renovated in 2015, will boast a buffet restaurant, a steakhouse, lobby bar, sports bar and lounge.
“Although we already have a strong presence in Mexico and it has taken us some time to reach the capital, we are proud to establish our presence here with such an emblematic hotel,” said Miguel Ángel Guardado, Managing Director of the Barcelo Hotel Group in Mexico. “It will be a pleasure to show the Mexican market our extensive expertise in the urban hospitality industry, which we have been developing over the course of many years in major Latin American and European cities. We are going to do this with our classic brand, Barcelo, which will enable us to transform Barcelo Mexico Reforma into a reference for quality and exclusiveness where guests can enjoy exciting and unforgettable experiences.”
