Concierge.com's insider take:
Enrique Norten of TEN Architectos wrapped a '60s-era low-rise in cloudy glass and pared down the 36 rooms to the basic necessities of Dwell readers: smooth gray carpets, a glass shelf the length of one wall, stainless-steel sink, good down and linens on the platform bed, and not much in the way of storage. Off the lobby is Aura, where the food and decor share an Asian sensibility; on the sixth floor is the indoor-outdoor (mostly outdoor) bar Area. The fifth floor houses a small, glass-walled indoor-outdoor gym, plus a pretty pool that nobody uses. Beware: The weekend partying of the fresas (the young, wealthy elite) on said rooftop can leak into the surrounding rooms. The hotel is located in quiet, posh Polanco, steps from the shops and not far from Bosque de Chapultepec.
