NileGuide Expert Says:
Polanco's home away from home for the young and perennially hip. Lounge nights (Friday and Saturdays) at the rooftop pool will make you feel like you are lost in Ibiza or at a fashion shoot for Vogue.

Mexico City's tony Polanco neighborhood north of Chapultepec Park is home to Hotel Habita, the flagship property of the Mexican-owned Grupo Habita. The frosted-glass exterior of the hotel, designed by TEN Arquitectos, fairly shimmers at night on one of the city's most expensive shopping streets, Avenida Masaryk. Accommodations are true to the company's trademark minimalist style, which still allows room for soft bed pillows and plush comforters. The Habita's sixth floor terrace remains one of the top nightlife destinations for the city's moneyed class; entertainers, fashion models, and their friends party here until 2:00 am; some guests say that this can make the upper floor rooms a bit noisy. The restaurant offers an extensive cold breakfast buffet for 180 pesos or a hot buffet for 225 pesos, with a la carte selections available, too. Among Grupo Habita's other hotels are the Condesa DF, and the Hotel Boca Chica in Acapulco.
