HOT DEALS AND NEW HOTELS
Blending colonial 17th century grandeur with a raw industrial edge, DOWNTOWN Mexico integrates local indigenous culture into its concept while celebrating its location in the Centro Histórico borough of Mexico City. Known as the “Palacio de los Condes de Miravalle”, it sits comfortably next to other colonial landmarks on the cobbled streets of this UNESCO World Heritage site. For each of their properties, owners Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha use a local team and integrate the local culture into the concepts. Such was the case when lovingly renovating DOWNTOWN Mexico, one of the oldest residences in the area that still maintains this particular Mexican viceregal style. The hotel blends elements of colonial style with local, indigenous culture. Characteristics such as ornate detailing around the windows of the facade and a stone-forge staircase with intricate handrails sit alongside grey volcanic rock walls and handmade cement tiles. The 17 rooms and suites possess a stripped-back, bohemian-chic elegance. They range from the simple and unadorned, decorated with little more than grey walls and tiled floors, to the stylish, with light timber detailing, exposed concrete walls and vaulted high brick ceilings. Street-side rooms have balconies to take in the views, while the others look over the lush and perfectly manicured patio. This palace grandeur is contrasted by the edgy character of the immense terrace which covers the entire rooftop. From these sun-soaked surroundings guests can get a glimpse over the historic buildings, while cooling off in the pool or sipping on a drink from the bar.
