Acapulco, the 1950’s playground for Hollywood royalty is back in the spotlight. Two Midcentury Modern classics have been redone: Las Brisas (doubles from $270) is fresh from a $20 million upgrade, and Hotel Boca Chica (Punta Caletilla, Fraccionamiento Las Playas; 52-55/5282-3100; hotel-bocachica.com; doubles from $195) reopens in March. Also, Rafael Micha’s 44-room Hotel Hotel (Brisas del Marques; 52-55/5282-3100; prices not available at press time)—designed by Miguel Ángel Aragonés—debuts later this year.
