MCLEAN, VA—Conrad Hotels & Resorts and Inmobiliaria Canels, SA de CV have partnered to operate a 135-room new-build property in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Scheduled to open in mid-2016, Conrad San Luis Potosi represents the first Conrad brand hotel in Mexico.
Hilton Worldwide currently has more than 30 existing hotels in Mexico, including the Hilton San Luis Potosi that opened in April, and some 30 projects in its development plans. This is the brand’s sixth project with Inmobiliaria Canels, SA de CV.
Located near high-end retail, residential and corporate offices, the site for Conrad San Luis Potosi is a short distance to the city’s convention center, attractions and historic center—listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site within Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, the Royal Road of the Interior Land.
Designed by Ochoa Arquitectos and Profettional Design, the nine-story steel building with glass curtain wall will feature a signature restaurant and bar, more than 10,000 sq. ft. of flexible meetings space, a fourth-floor outdoor swimming pool and fitness center. Its 135 guestrooms will feature signature Conrad amenities.
Conrad San Luis Potosi will offer the Conrad Concierge mobile app, which gives global luxury travelers the ability to customize details of their hotel stay before, during and after each visit via a smartphone or tablet.
The Conrad brand has a portfolio of 24 properties across five continents.
