Hippodrome Hotel, located on a leafy side street just off the lovely Parque México, evokes the Art Deco era with slate, plum, and aluminum accents. The hotel is decorated with bold geometric patterns, which are used sparingly in rooms and common areas. The 16 rooms are cocoons of calm, with supremely comfortable beds and linens, fresh flowers, and lots of free entertainment options, including Netflix, which is available on each room's flat-screen TV. The Executive Suite Terrace may be the loveliest of them all, given that it has its own flower-filled terrace. There's an on-site restaurant, Hipp Brasserie, serving new Mexican cuisine, and a butler on call who can shake or stir a cocktail to your specifications. Be sure to explore the hotel's neighborhood, too; aside from the park, there are many restaurants, shops, and art galleries that give this residential neighborhood a lot of creative, engaging character.
