I spent a divine week of my summer exploring Mexico City. My hotel of choice was the much talked about Hotel Condesa DF and it did not disappoint. Of course, I left the hotel every day but truthfully I could have stayed there for hours on end absorbing every detail. Picture a neoclassical exterior revealing a thoroughly contemporary and uber chic interior courtesy of India Mahdavi. It was sublime. The best part was the central patio with three floors of white shutters opening to the sky. It gave a whole new meaning to the game of peek-a-boo.
