This intimate design hotel fits right in with its trendy Polanco district location. Offering just 35 relaxing accommodations, including a penthouse overlooking the sophisticated surrounding neighborhood, the former 1950s apartment building is a chic alternative to Mexico City's large luxury hotels. But don't let its diminutive size fool you. Although it may be small, this designer dream is big on amenities. Two on-site restaurants serve contemporary interpretations of Mexican favorites and seasonal Italian-influenced cuisine. At Aurora Spa, indigenous body treatments incorporate agave, local tree bark and the pulp of the antioxidant Zapote fruit. With spacious terraces, the suites are to be coveted, while standard guest rooms appeal with custom-made rosewood furniture, surround-sound home theater systems and mini-spa bathrooms featuring rain showers.
