Hilton has announced the opening of Umbral, Curio Collection by Hilton, representing the brand’s debut in Mexico City.
The modern 59-room boutique hotel is the latest addition to Curio Collection by Hilton, reinforcing the growth of its portfolio of one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts in premier destinations across the Caribbean and Latin America.
Part of an ambitious program to restore historical buildings in Mexico, Umbral, Curio Collection by Hilton is a restoration project from a heritage building that was constructed in 1924. Situated in downtown Mexico City, the hotel overlooks the city’s most emblematic buildings, including the Metropolitan Cathedral, the County Hall and El Palacio de Hierro Department Store.
All 59 guest rooms are comprised of two distinct environments – a darker intimate entrance that leads to a light guest room through a golden frame, symbolizing an umbral. Each of the 12 suites also offers a record player with a personalized vinyl collection – based on guests’ preferences – through a partnership with local vinyl shop La Roma Records.
Umbral is the city’s only hotel with an on-site gallery, featuring more than 100 pieces of art by respected local artists such as Jorge Montiel, Andrea Vores and Tomas Diaz. The property also features a 375-sq.-ft. room for intimate meetings and events for up to eight guests and a rooftop terrace for outdoor functions of up to 150 attendees.
Other amenities include an outdoor heated pool, fitness centre and a Wellness Bar. For dining, there’s the Terraza Umbral Restaurant which incorporates local flavours into traditional dishes. For after-dinner drinks, guests can stop by Terraza Umbral Bar – an exclusive mixology rooftop bar.
To celebrate the milestone opening, Umbral has launched two special offerings for guests. Through Dec. 30, travellers can take advantage of The Cross Over the Umbral package which includes overnight accommodations, two signature Independencia cocktails at the Terraza Umbral Bar, breakfast for two on the hotel’s rooftop and a $50 dining credit. Additionally, guests who book stays between Aug. 31 and Dec. 1 will earn 1,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points per night.
