Enveloped in a frosted-glass facade on the trendiest street in affluent Polanco, Mexico City’s first luxury design hotel is instantly distinguishable from its neighbors with its geometric ice-cube finish. Hotel Habita’s smooth glass architecture and cooling white design flow all through the hotel, all the way up to its rooftop pool, sauna and spa, where you can unwind with a Diamond Crystal Massage. At night, the top-floor terrace transforms into a swanky lounge lit by fireplaces where guests can sip mezcal overlooking the neighborhood below.

2. Downtown Mexico

This 17th-century palace stands in the Unesco-listed Centro Histórico. Guests enter through studded wooden doors, where this Mexico City luxury boutique hotel’s high-vaulted brick ceiling draws the eye and hand-made, terracotta-tiled floors pave the way to the rooms. Walls are cast from red volcanic rock, murals line the halls and a central courtyard forms the hub of the hotel, dotted with shaded seating and stand-out crimson couches. The rooftop pool and bar crown it all, with views of colonial-era buildings and characterful churches.

3. Hippodrome Hotel Condesa

You won’t find minibars in the rooms of this Mexico City luxury hotel – instead, guests are waited on by personal butlers, ready to meet their every craving. All you have to do is decide: shaken or stirred, sweet or savory, personal shopper or private jet? No ask is too big for the hotel’s canny concierge service, which aims to make every stay carefree.

4. Casa Goliana

Built over a century ago, Casa Goliana has been restored and reimagined by Ana Reyes and Sergio Hinojos, who’ve artfully transformed this eight-bedroom home into a luxury bed and breakfast in Mexico City. With countless hospitality awards to show for it, the couple make you feel as if Casa Goliana is your very stylish second home. Personalized touches abound, from the friendly staff to fresh-cut flowers and home-made granola at breakfast.

5. AR218

AR218 blends elegance with sustainable features, harnessing recycled water and low-energy lights to power its sleek, self-catering suites. This is a place to steal away: dip the black-out blinds, tuck into your Ralph Lauren sheets and spend an evening browsing Apple TV in peace. Baccarat tableware decorates your kitchenette and some suites open up onto a large terrace with outdoor seating. A gym, roof garden and Condesa location, brimming with bars and places to eat, temper the absence of a restaurant.

6. Brick Hotel

If the walls of the Brick Hotel could talk, they’d be teeming with stories of Mexico City’s rich and infamous. The 20th-century, Belle Époque mansion was once home to the Mexican president, before becoming, ahem, a brothel and later a locksmith shop. Wrought-iron doors and original-tiled floors speak to the building’s history, while Edison bulbs shine a light on this luxury hotel’s contemporary edge. Stay in one of the suites for a door-to-door luxury service from the moment your chauffeur picks you up at the airport to the claw-foot tubs, leafy balconies and walls adorned by work from Mexican artists. After dark, dine in one of two in-house restaurants before sneaking down to the basement speakeasy.

7. Las Suites Campos Eliseos

The clue’s in the name at Las Suites whose spacious suites, come with kitchens, bedrooms and terraces. The top-tier roof terrace at this luxury Mexico City hotel is a trophy, too, with its sculptural pool and sightline to some of Polanco and Chapultepec’s sky-high buildings. Dine on tiraditos (raw fish) at the Japanese sushi bar or treat yourself to a facial at the garden-side spa.

8. Four Seasons

The jungle-like courtyard is the centerpiece of this Four Seasons five-star Mexico City hotel, transporting guests from the city center to serene oasis in seconds. Book a boozy brunch at courtyard restaurant Zanaya on Sundays, when unlimited glasses of Moët & Chandon are the order of the day. Elsewhere, Italian restaurant il Becco serves up white-linen sophistication while Pan Dulce bakery deals in quick bites. Gentleman can team a craft cocktail from iconic bar Fifty Mils with a proper shave at the in-house barbershop.
