In the heart of Polanco, five stories of floating glass enclose a dreamy interior defined by Modernistic wonders, Mexican art, and rare designer furniture. This highly aesthetic member of Grupo Habita and Design Hotels™ feels like a contemporary artwork in itself.
Like an ice cube on a hot street corner, Mexico City's Habita exudes a paradoxically austere luxury vibe at the heart of one of the world's most populous cities. Wrapped in a sheath of frosted glass, Habita raised eyebrows in Mexico City when it first opened in 2000, in a 1950s building located in one of the city's most fashionable districts. Sandwiched between its new and old facades are original balconies and new corridors. Contemporary art is evident in the metal Jan Hendrix mural hanging in the reception area. The daylight gathered from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and from doors opening onto balconies, is supplemented by Artemide and Flos lamps. Together, it all creates a spatial clarity that gives travelers tremendous peace of mind.
As one of Mexico City’s more upscale neighborhoods, Polanco—in the Miguel Hidalgo borough—is home to many of the country’s politicians, celebrities and money makers, thus ensuring upscale eating and shopping aplenty, and no lack of choice when it comes to enjoying some high-end cocktails. The pretty area is dotted with lush green spots, such as the Chapultepec Park and Parque Lincoln. Plaza Uruguay is a small, wooded park is our favorite for taking a break from life in the busy city. Don’t miss The Soumaya Museum (pictured), shining home to the private art collection of Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim. Here, luminaries such as Picasso, Renoir, Dali and Van Gogh hang alongside notable Mexican artists of the last century.
