pug seal tennyson
Set in a tree lined street in Mexico City’s affluent Polanco, the Pug Seal is monumental in striking blue with its beguiling carvings and stained glass.
True to the expectation of a bespoke hotel, your nose meets a pleasing signature scent on arrival, bowls
of local fruit and Mexican pastries are replenished throughout the day along with an afternoon Tequila bar, while the on-call concierge will usher you to Shazam the low-fi playlist and respond to your every whim and fancy.
A flowering red carpet leads to laser cut swings that drape elegantly from a tall domed ceiling and onto the winding double staircase that is nothing less than a fairytale setting.
Several suites on the mezzanine are distinguished by unique emblems, each with its own layout and color-way from a bold yet complimentary palette: moss green walls accented by soft rose, for example.
Much of the building’s original charm has been maintained, playfully by interior architects, German Velasco Arquitectos.
Rounded arches, framed walls, Mexican artwork, original pink marble floors, floral tapestry and custom furniture are characteristic of Alice in Wonderland, though calm and supremely comfortable.
Organic bathroom lotions, luxurious thick curtains and bird-chirping quiet will coax you to extend your stay.
Pug Seal Tennyson is available for 2-night minimum stays, intermediary residency, fashion photo shoots and garden weddings though guests are always assured of an ambient, uninterrupted experience.
Mexico has experienced generous Covid clearances with minimal cases. Pug Seal complies with health and safety orders and as a low-contact boutique hotel, guest’s can be sure of a healthy journey. Unlock your Pug Seal Discount by Signing Up before booking.
