Las Alcobas, Mexico City

5 of 47

Though we packed our noise-canceling headphones when we heard that Yabu Pushelberg’s glossy Las Alcobas was located on the Polanco neighborhood’s busy Avenida Masaryk, walls with soundproofing technology allowed us to cocoon in an earthy guest room (one of 35) detailed with embroidered linens and rosewood furnishings. More reasons to stay put? Chef and cookbook author Marta Ortiz’s contemporary Mexican menus for Barroco and Dulce Patria restaurants, and Mayan- and Aztec-inspired treatments at the intimate Aurora Spa. Doubles from $405.
