San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
TEL: 52-415-152-1015
Hotel Matilda, which opened this past September along one of San Miguel de Allende’s cobblestoned streets, stands out for its sleek white exterior and modern décor. Guest rooms are comfortable and contemporary (floor-to-ceiling windows, striking, industrial-style sliding wood doors), and local materials, such as Mexican calcutta marble floors, were incorporated whenever possible. Most rooms also have a patio or terrace with unparalleled views of downtown. The courtyard, with manicured gardens growing native plants, has an infinity pool, while the 4,700-square-foot spa is home to the city’s only hammam. Don’t miss the impressive collection of local art (including prints by Mexico City photographer Eduardo Zaylan) and a stop at the hotel restaurant, which relies on a local organic garden for its seasonal produce (case in point, the signature pork chops served with stone-ground grits and a jalapeño and caramelized onion relish).

Room to Book:

No. C15, a Grand Deluxe Room, for a great view of the pool and city from its private terrace.

Insider Tip:

The hotel has two hidden art finds: the wallpaper pattern in the bar bathroom was created from the well-known Spencer Tunick photo of 18,000 nudes (the largest gathering of nudes for a photo), taken in the Zócalo in Mexico City. Plus, a Diego Rivera painting of Matilda Stream (the hotel’s namesake and the mother of the owner/developer) is on display in the hotel library.
