Hip fashionista favorite in the heart of Mexico City’s Condesa artists enclave, with a Japenese-Mexican fusion restaurant and a popular rooftop lounge
Originally built in 1928, the Condesa DF has an Art Nouveau façade and Parisian styling that had new life breathed into them thanks to Mexican architect Javier Sánchez, who oversaw the restoration of the building, and India Mahdavi, who lovingly reimagined the interior public spaces with a white-on-seafoam color scheme offset by wood benches and stools. The finished look is modern and smart, and it attracts a stylish jetset crowd.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms echo the style of the rest of the hotel, but they feel like personalized studio apartments outfitted with the same classic and contemporary furniture. The beds are wrapped in white linens and backed by polished walnut headboards. There are small but important details too, such as hand-woven rugs from Oaxaca, high ceilings, flat-screen TVs and large, rounded French windows that face onto the street, offering views of jacaranda trees. All of the bathrooms are stocked with Malin + Goetz products, and some have clawfoot soaking tubs and rainfall showers.
On the ground floor, the El Patio restaurant’s executive chef, Keisuke Harada, creates Japenese-Mexican fusion dishes such as Kobe steak burgers, shrimp or ribeye tacos, and salmon sushi rolls with jalapeño dill sauce. Elsewhere, there’s a gym where you can keep up your workout regimen, but the real show-stopper is the fourth-floor rooftop lounge, which is dotted with round cushioned daybeds and white umbrellas; it’s the perfect spot for spending an evening with friends and sipping a few margaritas while taking in the views of Chapultepec Castle and Parque España.
