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. For details, call 011-52-52-823-100 or log on to
