Expert Review

Opened in February 2009, Distrito Capital, the latest from high-design Habita hotel group, is the city’s hot-spot hotel du jour. Located in the Santa Fe quarter (a growing business hub and shopping district), the svelte 30-room newbie towers above the city in a 28-story high-rise (the mixed-use building is also home to restaurants and residential condos) and features interiors by French designer Joseph Dirand (think tailored minimalism in a palette of muted grays, vintage furnishings and artwork, modern touches like mounted flat-screen TVs and retro accents like old-school rotary phones) – but the hotel’s forte is its public spaces, located on the fifth floor. The open-air pool lounge, home to a 65-foot pool, comes with killer mojitos, starry-night skies and city views, and DJ-driven weekend pool parties that commence at noon and wind down at dusk. The 31st-floor Suite Royal  wows with knockout city views, its own bar and gym. Next to the pool lounge, separated by a sliding glass wall, is the hotel’s fab restaurant serving artful Mexican fare courtesy of celebrity chef Enrique Olvera.
