Once the home of prominent Mexican journalist Lolita Ayala, Hotel Busué (formerly known as Casa Vieja) pays homage to the literary achievements of Frenchman Eugène Sue (nicknamed “Beau Sue”). The compact, 11-room boutique hotel has clean, modernist touches that play off the traditional tile, exposed wooden beams and wrought iron accents common to the neighborhood’s hacienda-style architecture. Muted neutrals (ivories, grays and earthy purples) complement the ocher tilework and stucco arches in the rooms, which sport hardwood floors, pillowtop beds wrapped in 500-threadcount Egyptian cotton sheets and mod cons like plush robes, flat-screen satellite TVs, iPod docks and 24-hour room service. Head down to the terrace for a pre-dinner cocktail before snagging a table at Cornelia. The stylish restaurant has a modern take on the city’s many vibrant regional cuisines, serving up dishes such as strip steak cooked with an onion crust, cactus fettuccine and cinnamon-scented tomato broth.
In the Area
Polanco — the chic neighborhood around Busué — is a prime spot for shopping, museum-hopping and exploring the city’s great parks. Sprawling Chapultepec Park contains not only swaths of forestland but also the National Anthropology Museum, the nation’s Modern Art Museum and the fanciful Papalote Children’s Museum. Fashion-conscious shoppers will appreciate the hotel’s close proximity to Avenida Presidente Masaryk, one of the capital’s most exclusive shopping areas, which features upscale offerings from Cartier, Tiffany, Frette and Louis Vuitton.
