A restored 17th-century building is home to Downtown México, a 17-room boutique hotel in the heart of Mexico City's Centro Histórico (Historic Center) neighborhood. The rooms here won't appeal to everyone—the semi-private bathroom is a drawback for some guests—but the building itself, its location, and all that it holds make it easy to overlook minor quibbles. The hotel shares the gorgeous façade of Isabel la Católica 30 with an entire complex of Mexican-owned businesses. There are bakeries and cafés, galleries and jewelry shops, and two exceptional restaurants, including Azul Histórico, which sits on the main patio of the building's interior courtyard. It's an incredibly charming (and romantic) scene, and the food—contemporary riffs on Mexican classics from various regions—is equally satisfying. The hotel makes for an excellent home base in one of the capital's many culturally rich neighborhoods. Turn out of the hotel and head in any direction, and you'll find a museum or historical attraction. Wherever you go, don't skip the Zócalo, the main plaza, ringed by government buildings, the Cathedral, and the Templo Mayor, an active archaeological site.
