Star local hoteliers Grupo Habita have a knack for creating happening social hubs out of thin air (case in point: New York’s Hôtel Americano, It List 2012). Their fourth Mexico City hotel, in the 17th-century Palacio de los Condes de Miravalle, is an oasis of style in the formerly neglected Centro Histórico, the 500-year-old city center. The 17 guest rooms and public spaces, created by young Mexican architect duo Cherem-Serrano, blend original details, such as wood floors and fortress-thick brick walls, with tasteful handmade pine furnishings. In the atrium, a collection of artisanal Mexican boutiques sells everything from colorful scarves to mezcal. But you’re really here for the rooftop scene, where jet-setters sip mango and tamarind margaritas near the sexy lap pool.

Room to Book:

The Revolution Suite, which directly faces nearly 500 years of Mexican architectural history, from the 16th century La Profesa Church to the splendid 1908 Casino Espanol building

Insider Tip:

Be sure to catch dinner at Merotoro in the buzzy Colonia Condesa. Recently opened by the team behind perennial hit Contramar, the restaurant specializes in the fish-focused cuisine—and wines—of Baja California.
