Rosewood San Miguel de Allende
For its first city resort in Mexico, Rosewood looked to San Miguel's history to create a colonial-era hacienda where every corner reveals local artisans' work: cantera stone in patios and colonnades; curled bedposts and ornate tin mirror frames in 67 guest rooms. The views are either of the inner courtyard or of the hills above town. The farm-to-table menu at 1826 Restaurant makes a flavor-packed locavore statement, while the Luna Rooftop Tapas Bar's flight of margaritas-mango, hibiscus, and tamarind pays homage to the vibrant hues of the city's iconic doorways. Brick pathways encircle the property, winding past lavendar, bouganvillea and tall pampas grass. Although the main building feels old, it's all new, built mainly from limestone quarrried from San Luis Potosi. The Colonial sensibility is offset by lots of modern art. A new shop sells clothing, jewelry, and food from local vendors.
