Concierge.com's insider take:

Jonathan Morr, the restaurateur (New York's BONDST) and hotelier (Miami Beach's Townhouse), knows what's hip. So it's no wonder that he was drawn to the neighborhood of La Condesa, a spot so hot that he borrowed its name for this hotel. The 1920s neoclassical building is the first—and for the time being only—hotel in La Condesa. Instead of ho-hum minimalism, interior designer India Mahdavi chose a playful mix of styles that combines everything from cowhide-covered banquettes to claw-foot tubs. The hotel—run by the same folks as the Habita—has 40 rooms, some with glass walls opening onto petite terraces. Outside there's a wedge-shaped courtyard, which is the heart of the hotel in every sense. The roof terrace (with a hole for that courtyard) was a hot spot as soon as the place opened in January 2005.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Located in the Condesa district, Mexico City's neighborhood of the moment, the 40-room Condesa is that rarest of breeds: a happening hot spot with dead-quiet accommodations. Past the minimalist lobby, visitors enter a triangular courtyard restaurant where chic locals of all ages congregate; the scene continues at the rooftop sushi bar, and in-room iPods move the groove seamlessly from bar to bedroom. However, those in need of their beauty sleep can retreat behind not one but two sets of doors, and the courtyard's architecturally striking shutters can be closed to complete the cocoon effect. Rooms, though small, have extra-comfy beds, along with such indigenous design details as alpaca-wool throws, stone floors, and turquoise accents. Powerful rainfall showerheads erase the grime of this urban jungle, although single-ounce Malin and Goetz bath products are skimpy even by hotel standards.—2005 Hot List

When to go: November through February, when temperatures and smog levels are at their lowest.

Which room to book: Avoid those with courtyard balconies, which are windowless and receive no natural light when the balcony door is closed

Amenities: Bar/lounge, Gym, 24-hour Room Service
