Great design, Modern style

Design buffs who aren't afraid of angles, geometric patterns, bright colors, bold art works, and psychedelic lighting will love W Mexico City, which underwent a total facelift in 2015. All of the new design elements were guided by a masquerade theme, so visitors will see gigantic masks in the lobby and floor-to-ceiling photographs in each room that depict one of several characters: Azteca (Aztec warrior woman), luchador (wrestler), conquistador (conqueror), the diva of the Mexican cinema, and Adelita (who represents the women who participated in the Mexican revolution). Optical illusions abound throughout the hotel and the eyes will never want for visual stimulation. Playfulness and pops of color continue—albeit in a different way—in J by José Andrés, the first restaurant by renowned chef José Andrés that was opened outside the U.S. and its territories. Spanish tapas inflected with Mexican ingredients are the star here. Meanwhile, in the lobby, the bar mixes up signature cocktails like Ruby Red (mezcal, hibiscus, chile, and rose essence) and the Mezcalada, a drink served over dry ice in a fish bowl. Unisex lobby bathrooms even have their own hidden tequila bar.
