The original 1968 modern grand hotel—the one that tends to host the visiting luminaries—has held up well, especially after its serious renovations circa 2002, which included the installation of an Adam Tihany-designed branch of Le Cirque. The 714 rooms are fancifully divided into six "Missions"; all have clean lines and sharp corners, with sliding-glass windows, some onto balconies (avoid low floors with interior views, unless you want to spend all your time in the dark). A pool, gym, and six other restaurants are useful. Less so, unless you're a conference planner, the 20 meeting rooms. The location, steps from Chapultepec, is quiet and privileged, but you might feel as if you wandered into someone else's corporate retreat.
