Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico!
Mexico City, also known as D.F. (for Distrito Federal), lies upon ruins of Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital, with ancient heritage still quite evident. The Templo Mayor, ruins of the sacred ceremonial center of the Aztecs, was uncovered quite by accident in 1978 by city workers digging underground. Walkways wind through remains, leading to a museum housing an 8-ton stone tablet of the moon goddess. Sprawling Mexico City, population 20 million, also reigns as the capital of Mexico, and a financial, political, and cultural stronghold for a country with borders touching the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and Sea of Cortez. A fabulous overview of Mexico City can be had from Bellini, the revolving dining spot and watering hole on the World Trade Center's 45th floor, where lobster is the house special among Mexican and international fare. Attractions include Colonial neighborhoods, awesome mansions, vibrant nightlife, and fine shopping, particularly in the Zona Rosa neighborhood. Other attractions include Metropolitan Cathedral, Latin America's largest church started in 1573, taking 250 years to complete, resulting in an architectural mix. The bustling 13-acre Zócalo (Latin America's largest town square) marks the site of Montezuma's palace, where many public structures were built centuries ago with stones from Aztec temples destroyed by the Spaniards. On the east, the National Palace -- once the private compound of Hernan Cortes -- has frescoes painted by famed Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. The elegant Paseo de la Reforma, the capital's main thoroughfare with luxury hotels, embassies and promenades, showcases the oft-photographed Independence Monument. The 2,000-acre Chapultepec Park boasts several attractions including the Museum of Modern Art, the Rufino Tamayo Museum, and the National Anthropology Museum, with 26 exhibit halls. A castle, once the home of Maximilian and his wife Carlota, is now filled with their lavish belongings. Around since 1541, Alameda Park, near the Zócalo and Palace of Fine Arts, was once the site of burnings, hangings and other executions. Principal central neighborhoods include the Centro Histórico, Zona Rosa, Polanco, Roma, Condesa and Lomas de Chapultepec. Walking Mexico City has been likened to "one part chaos, two parts amazement and discovery," made all the more chaotic by street vendors (banned in recent years, but nevertheless back on the job) hawking everything from tamales to trinkets for Day of the Dead. Mexico City, with three major convention centers, boasts more than 20,000 four-star rooms.
