Located in the Condesa area of Mexico City, Hotel Condesa DF was a four-year collaboration of Jennie Yip, Jonathan Morr, Grupo Habita, and French designer India Mahdavi. The redux was a labor of love — from sourcing local artisans for tableware and furniture to bringing in local community partnerships to enhance the hotel.
“Often compared to New York’s SoHo, Condesa is seen as one of Mexico City’s trendier areas. Characterized by time worn colonial architecture, cosmo-cool drinking spots, and green parks dotted with young Mexicans and internationals, the relationship with the area is symbiotic and forever changing: vibrant, fresh, and capturing the city’s transition.”
