Design-focused hotel in Monterrey with dual rooftop infinity pools, a locavore restaurant and DJ-curated playlists
Grupo Habita’s seventh property combines the perks of design hotels — a celeb chef restaurant, DJ-curated playlists — with business traveler essentials (free WiFi, sleek work spaces). Case in point: Tiny handmade mirrors shipped from India make up a dazzling wall mosaic in the stark lobby, which is outfitted with black wood furnishings, moose antler installations and artwork by fashion designer Rick Owens. The black-and-white motif extends to the guestrooms, where whitewashed walls set off ebony platform beds, the bathrooms are lined with onyx (and C.O. Bigelow bath products), and floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of light. The on-site dining bests your average hotel grub at R. of Restaurant, where executive chef Marco Aveces churns out chipotle eggs benedict with chorizo in the morning and short rib barbacoa tacos with salsa verde at night. Without question, the rooftop pool and bar is the star of the hotel: Twin infinity pools offer a bird’s-eye view of the city, desert and mountains, while speakers pump out specially engineered sounds from Paris’s DJ Monsieur X, and a cement canopy provides shade from the harsh desert sun.
In the Area
Most visitors come to Mexico’s third-largest city for business, but intrepid travelers will find plenty to explore. Start in the Macroplaza, where the 18th-century Metropolitan Cathedral is in stark contrast with the Lighthouse of Commerce, a futuristic monument that beams a green laser throughout the city.
