Uber Cool Boutique Hotel

Distrito Capital is an uber cool boutique hotel located in Santa Fe, one of Mexico City’s most prestigious neighborhoods. The small hotel occupies the top floors of a modern skyscraper and offers a commanding view of the city from one of the highest vantage points in the capital.

The entrance is discrete and almost hidden. You’ll be escorted to the lobby in a dedicated elevator that opens to the 5th floor. The lobby is a cool waiting area with a modern minimalist style and has a library of books in several languages.

The restaurant is calm by day, and quite lively at night.  Chef Enrique Olvera delights both hotel guest and chic local residents with his unique creations.  I enjoyed breakfast and dinner here and loved everything I tried.  The best was a salad with tons of greens and panela cheese breaded with amaranth and sesame seeds.  Yum!

The bar offers a covered, open air space and is packed to the gills at night with beautiful people from one of the world's largest cities. 

The pool parties are pretty fabulous, too, although you could take a dip in the heated pool if you wanted some exercise at any time.  Check out the cool bed/lounges at the far end of the pool.  Love!

The hotel rooms are amazing and offer every comfort imaginable. My room was on the 44th floor.   The smart room is completely controlled by remote, from the blackout curtain to the music that is piped into the room.  My picture is terrible and you can't fully appreciate how cool the room is.  There's a sitting area with a sofa for three people, a desk, and well stocked mini-bar. 

The city view is quite impressive. 

But the best part of all is the bathroom, complete with plush towels, a bathrobe, and yummy amenities from Malin and Goetz. You must try the Rum Body Wash. It's wonderful.

Although I was not compensated for this post, I'd certainly love to be a guest at another hotel from the Habita group if they'll have me!  :)
