Striking a harmonious balance between style statements and minimalism, Mexico's first design hotel has been an "in" spot since it opened, although, 15 years in, it's starting to rest on its laurels. Service ranges from cool to indifferent, with a few exceptions, and some areas could use more upkeep. Ambient music is piped into the rooms (you can turn it off), and bowls of limes sit by flat-screen TVs. The swanky rooftop bar attracts international celebs and chic chilangos every night of the week to its open-air views, fireplace, and selection of mezcals. The Lobby Restaurant is a unique space with tasty bistro-Mexican cuisine, and a tiny ground-floor bookstore has a nice array of art books.
