Waldorf Astoria San Miguel De Allende Opening 2025

11

I’m extremely impressed by the pace at which Hilton’s luxury portfolio continues to grow. It seems like the Waldorf Astoria brand is on a roll with signing new projects. Here’s the latest example of that…

Waldorf Astoria San Miguel de Allende basics

Hilton has announced plans for the newly built Waldorf Astoria San Miguel de Allende, which is expected to open in early 2025. This will be Waldorf Astoria’s third property in Mexico, after the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal and Waldorf Astoria Cancun. The property is owned by PEAKAIR GROUP, is being developed by Skyplus Developments Corp, and will be managed by Hilton. 

The property will offer 120 guest rooms and 24 residences. While exact details about the amenities remain to be seen, we’re told to expect three restaurants, two bars, a coffee shop, a fitness center with yoga and meditation areas, a destination-inspired spa, a rooftop space with pools and relaxation areas, an on-site art gallery, and a club for kids and teens.

San Miguel de Allende is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and has become a popular vacation destination in recent years. It’s known for being a colonial city with great architecture, a thriving art scene, and rich history. As far as the property’s location goes, it’s my understanding that it will be built near the Rosewood.

Below you can see some renderings that Hilton has shared of the Waldorf Astoria. The rooms and grounds look stunning (I’m not sure about the building exterior, though). Of course whether reality reflects the renderings remains to be seen.

This is an exciting new luxury points addition

I visited San Miguel de Allende roughly a year ago, and had a nice time. It’s a safe, charming, approachable city, with fairly easy access from the United States. It’s also a very popular city with Americans who decide to live abroad, as there are tons of Americans living there.

It’s a great place, though there’s also no denying that it has become extremely hyped and “on the radar” in recent years. It’s almost like Mexico’s version of Santorini in that regard.

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

It’s awesome to see that a true luxury points hotel will be coming to San Miguel de Allende. Currently the two most popular luxury hotels are the Belmond and the Rosewood, and neither of those belong to major points programs.

Bottom line

The Waldorf Astoria brand will be expanding to San Miguel de Allende, with the property expected to open in early 2025. Of course that timeline has the potential to slip, and for that matter the project could be rebranded before the hotel ever opens.

Based on the renderings, this looks like a gorgeous hotel, so here’s to hoping it looks anything like the pictures.

What do you make of the Waldorf Astoria San Miguel de Allende?

    Ahhh
    SMdeA was a star in the 90s.
    We had so much fun back then.
    It's a town that is just too perfect and the gringos dont really fit in.
    Now we have Hyatt and Rosewood and Waldorf.
    Oh well. Times change.

    The Rosewood needs the competition. I live here part time and have traveled throughout the world, and nothing approaches SMA for culture, art, food, weather and beauty. See one Posada at Xmas and you'll never leave.

    Ben you should review the Hyatt property that opened there already.

    We owned a home in Centro for several years so know the town well. Everything changes, nothing remains the same. San Miguel is no different. When I saw the news article, the first thing I thought was all the jobs that will be created. SMA has a vibrant economy in contrast to so many other Mexican cities.

    I am from San Miguel and it is insane how politicians are filling their pockets with these projects who sanmiguelenses do not have any benefits. And there is a lack of water in the city already. And the traffic is horrible in all San Miguel. These kind of projects are just destroying the city and the people living there.

  6. Richard Esparza Guest

    The hotel room and bathroom absolutely beautiful. The hotel building itself looks like a Mexican prison. What happened to red-tiles roofs? The arches are appropriate, the main building totally inappropriate for San Miguel. How about a design that compliments the local architecture or hacienda architecture?

    They do have some good ones but I just stayed at The Roosevelt Waldorf New Orleans and it was terrible. The service, top to bottom was also terrible. The food was terrible. The app. for reserving a room was terrible. Guest Services was terrible. Hilton should remove the Waldorf name from their New Orleans property!

    I live here in San Miguel de Allende since mid 2000's and can confirm this news... so not surprised... Just wondering WHERE though if it is suppose to be close to the Rosewood? - Reason being, there is not much vacant land in Centro for such a large project unless they have bought out one of the large parking lots that have recently closed down near the Rosewood... Hmmm? Now with the Waldorf having residences...

Hmmm? Now with the Waldorf having residences that can be purchased, those with bottomless bank accounts will want to check all their options out -- Westin Residences (outskirts of the city), Marriott Cleviá (closer to edge of town) along with the Rosewood residences that go for a mere million or two!

      Straight from Mayor Trejo’s mouth - the hotel will be constructed on Calle Cardo on the site of that big parking lot (across from the Rosewood properties).

    Hyatt has an option here already: Numu. So this would be the second points option

    1. ECR12 Guest

      Numu isnt open yet, FWIW. Scheduled for next month but we'll see.
