A true designer hotel, the Habita Monterrey combines the minimalist style of the Mexico City-based hotel group with the drive of the country’s industrial capital. This property is located in San Pedro Garza Garcia, the municipality with the highest economic income in Latin America. Here, the Habita Monterrey presents itself as a concrete and glass tower that for many represents an icon of modernity with the rugged landscapes of northern Mexico. Everything in the hotel is reminiscent of top-notch architectural and design aspects. The work of Agustín Landa, the interior features the design of Frenchman Joseph Dirand. Although the Habita concentrates an influx of visitors from the modeling and arts environment, business travelers are embraced by all the connectivity possibilities it offers.
Amenities: Like other Grupo Habita properties, one of the Monterrey property’s hallmarks is its rooftop pool, with a 360-degree panoramic view of the Monterrey landscape below a concrete vault. In all areas, both the public areas and the rooms, there are details with simple lines, as well as design elements that range from Indian to Mexican desert elements. The ‘Lobby’ restaurant has a menu presented by celebrity chef Enrique Olvera.
Business and events tips: It’s worth holding a meeting with your local team or investors in your startup in the hotel’s business center, which in addition to being the most high-end in terms of connectivity, offers access to a spectacular terrace. The Poolbar is a must for connecting with Nuevo León’s movers and shakers.
What’s nearby: The San Pedro Garza Garcia area is one of Latin America’s business meccas. It is home to some of Monterrey’s major corporations such as Vitro, Alfa, Cemex and Femsa. Nearby is also Chipinque, one of the lungs of the Monterrey metropolitan area.
