Distrito Capital

37 Juan Salvador Agraz
Mexico City , Mexico http://www.hoteldistritocapital.com/main.html

An elevator ride up 28 floors lands you in a cool lobby of monochromatic granite, high above the haze blanketing Mexico City. The 30 rooms in Grupo Habita’s latest scene-y hangout in the Santa Fe business district have a starkly macho sensibility, with glazed-tile baths, crisp white platform beds, and studio windows. What saves Distrito Capital from becoming just a Modernist box? Clever flourishes by Paris-based designer Joseph Dirand, including Thomas Glassford’s silver Aster sculptures that dominate reception and an already-packed rooftop bar and pool terrace (mucho tequila, ningún inhibitions).
