PLEASURE TO DO BUSINESS

Mexico City’s Newest Small Hotel Is large On Amenities


Minimalist chic checks into Mexico City, with the recent opening of Habita Hotel in the exclusive Polanco district. The ultra-hip 36-room boutique decks its creamy-colored rooms in platform beds, designer chairs, flat-screen TVs, and laptop-spacious safes. When indulgence hour arrives, snag a chaise beside the rooftop pool. Or climb a spiral staircase to the Area Bar, terraced above the swimming deck, for alfresco drinks or meditative moments beside the 12-foot-long fireplace. Modern art and pale-wood furnishings set the progressive-but-casual tone for Habita’s Aura Restaurant. See and be seen from $195 a night.
