The Hotel: A wedge-shaped, French Neoclassical–style building from the 1920s got a funky-mod overhaul in 2005, when hotelier Jonathan Morr and interior designer India Mahdavi reimagined it as a boutique hotel. Now the 40 smallish guest rooms are a boho-chic mix of natural elements (stone floors, wood paneling, alpaca-wool rugs) and futuristic, whimsical details (sculptural basin sinks, molded fiberglass tables). All surround a leafy central atrium (with an ultra-cool rooftop sushi bar) that morphs from a laid-back hangout to a pulsingly popular nightspot when the sun goes down. In the aqua-green hotel boutique look for chokers strung with silver beads and dyed red pinto beans and bags made from striped rebozo scarves. The highlight is the smooth mezcal, distilled exclusively for the hotel.

The Locale: The artsy neighborhood of Condesa, abuzz with bars, restaurants, and art galleries, is a hub for hip young things—but quiet can be found, too; the hotel is practically right next to the lushly landscaped Parque España.
