Sky high design
Grupo Habita are well-known for producing hotels that have style gurus levitating in amazement. This one is located in Santa Fe, Mexico City’s high-retail and business district so it is one of their more swish creations. Acclaimed interior designer, Joseph Dirand masterminded the interior down to the vintage furnishings and designer cutlery. To enter the hotel you must climb the Mexico City skyscraper range by riding the elevator 28 floors. Once there, you find yourself in the impeccable lobby resplendent with silver Aster sculptures by Thomas Glassford. Your room has a beautiful tiled bath, designer products and studio windows. It is the place to do business and the hotel has a conferencing suite with matrix-levels of technology. The restaurant is run by an executive chef who serves a menu that some call “the new Mexican cuisine”. The poolside bar is accommodating and there is even a private cinema. Very cool.
