Distrito Capital

Juan Salvador Agraz 37, Contadero, 05300 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico

The 2009 opening of Distrito Capital-one of several properties in Mexico City owned by boutique hotel trendsetters Grupo Habita-was a welcome event in the business-oriented neighborhood of Santa Fe. Though the area has a number of hotels, Distrito Capital both literally and figuratively towers above them all. Occupying a skyscraper, the minimalist property features sleek, quiet rooms, some of which have soaking tubs. While the color palette is predominantly black and white, large windows let in plenty of natural light, and oversize light fixtures cast a soft glow. The open-air pool and lounge, both found on the lobby level, are excellent places to unwind.
