Mexico City has a new luxury hotel, Distrito Capital. This property, the 8th unveiled by Grupo Habita, a group known for its impeccably designed hotels, opened in February 2009. In case you didn’t already guess, the name Distrito Capital translates to “capital district” – although ironically, the hotel is located in Santa Fe, one of the city’s business districts. The hotel features the modern interior design work of Joseph Dirand, who also designed the Grupo Habita hotel Habita Montery. Dirand’s work in Distrito Capital includes an emphasis on the horizontal and vertical line, a mix of vintage and modern furniture from the likes of Charlotte Perriand and Alvar Aalto, and dark gray walls in a number of spaces. The hotel has 17 rooms and 13 suites – including a presidential suite (Suite Royal) which has a private gym. Also available to guests are the hotel’s library, restaurant helmed by Enrique Olvera, bar, pool, and Acqua di Parma amenities.
