I’ve explored the Yucatan Peninsula since Spring Break 2004 and have proclaimed my love for Mexico from the rooftop. I didn’t realize how limited my exposure to Mexico was until I traveled to Mexico City.
Downtown Mexico Hotel
We stayed in the history district at the Downtown Mexico Hotel, which was clearly more traditional the more developed neighborhoods of Polanco, La Condesa, Roma and others.
The only downside of this hotel would be the name. It’s not located Downtown as implied but rather in the Historic District. The hotel itself has a boutique shopping center with traditional Mexican jewelry, clothing, and delicacies. The hotel, once a majestic home, has been transformed into a hip historian hotel with a sexy rooftop and terrace. The bedrooms are reasonably sized with high ceilings and intricate stone work. The staff is very friendly and genuinely helpful.
