On a recent stopover in Mexico City, Luxury Travel Advisor popped by Grupo Habita's flagship hotel, Hotel Habita.

The intimate boutique hotel sits directly on Avenida Presidente Masaryk, the 5th Avenue of Mexico City. We stayed in room #45, a deluxe king room with a bath tub and private terrace. All rooms have access to the BMW house car, mini bar, in house music channels, MALIN + GOETZ bathroom amenities, TV and DVD player. Services include laundry, fax, free high-speed internet, business center and 24-hour room service.

The hotel evokes a very cosmopolitan-chic vibe, with modern, clean lines and stark whites contrasted against natural earth tones. During the day it plays host to locals who will dine in the lobby restaurant. (Be sure to check out the gorgeous breakfast spread, with fresh fruit, meats, cheeses, breads and spreads - fresh, healthy and delicious!) On the fifth floor guests will find the pool and deck, where we sat back and relaxed for some sun and a few cold Modelos. There is also a fitness center, treatment room and sauna on the fifth floor. 

By night the city's sexy elite congregate on the sixth floor terrace for late night cocktails and city views. Cool touch: The Terrace has a 12-foot long fireplace, which makes for a cozy evening on cooler Mexico City nights. 

Within walking distance of the hotel is Avendia Masaryk's high-end shopping (like Cartier and Louis Vuitton), as well as the scores of restaurants and bars in Polanco. Guests can also take a 10-minute walk to the Bosque de Chapultepec, the largest park in Mexico City, where they will be near the Museo Nacional de Antropologia. 

Grupo Habita has four hotels in Mexico City. Check out our post on our visit to Downtown Mexico City from last summer.
