Downtown México

Undine Pröhl
Centro Histórico

Housed in a landmark 17th-century mansion on a cobblestone street in the heart of Centro Histórico, the Downtown is the highlight of Grupo Habita’s boutique hotel portfolio, thanks to exquisite original details like an ornate Art Nouveau elevator, vaulted ceilings, and textured tezontle volcanic-rock walls. The Revolution suite stands out for its spacious dimensions and romantic Juliet balcony that looks onto the gorgeous Beaux-Arts Casino Español building across the way. (Caveat: Rooms don’t have air-conditioning, and some of the smaller ones can get stuffy.) Don’t miss the rooftop, with its swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and louche bar offering killer views of the historic Metropolitan cathedral. (Rooms, from $260)
