Hotel Habita MTY: Northern Cool

In Architecture & Design by Ali Madrazo

Grupo Habita is known for exceeding expectations as far as hotels and life style terms. Every time they open a new destination, it immediately transforms into a classic and becomes a local reference point for the city where it is located. Although their beach hotels are wonderful, the urban ones are not far behind. Hotel Habita MTY, named after the city where it is located (Monterrey), is a large and intimate monument at once. The gleaming tower from the architect Agustin Landa is a reference of “cool” in the 60s. Interiors were designed by Parisian, Joseph Dirand, who captured his creativity in this hotel. The bar at the rooftop named “The Pool” is an example of the way this hotel hugs and houses the guest, but never isolates it. The 360-degree panorama below a concrete vault is just breathtaking. Some of the luxury elements at the hotel make it a unique place to stay in while visiting Monterrey. For example, Indian mosaic mirrors, organic lamps from Serge Mouille and pieces from the personal collection of the fashion designer Rick Owens. Monterrey is a step between U.S. and South America and is continuously visited by business people. The objective of Hotel Habita MTY is to bring them the best experience while working, so afterwards they can enjoy of the rest of the services.
