Entry DescriptionLighting in detail at the service of the guest experience
The Hotel Ritz in Mexico City, located within one of the iconic skyscrapers on Paseo de la Reforma, aspires to provide a comfortable and unique experience in the city, in line with the Ritz Carlton's standards of service, dedication, and attention to detail.
The lighting design strives for excellence in every detail, enhancing the interior design through the use of materials, contrasts, and transparency. It also showcases the hotel's distinctive branding through the play of light.
At each entrance to various areas of the hotel, custom-made luminaires have been employed to welcome guests with subtle glimmers and welcoming lights.
The lighting in the hotel's common areas conveys a sense of well-being and luxury, with a delicate yet nuanced expression that complements the furniture and space.
In the guest rooms, the lighting offers different scenes through a lighting control system, allowing for personalized comfort in two distinct ambiences. In the living area, featuring wooden finishes, a cozy and warm atmosphere welcomes guests, providing relaxation and comfort. In the bathroom area with white tones, integrated lighting creates a gentle bath of light and wellness. This concept of two ambiences is also reflected in the spa area, all in service of creating a unique experience for guests.
