Four Seasons Casa Medina
If the unassuming colonial building that houses the Four Seasons Casa Medina looks as if it’s been there for decades, it’s because it has—it was built as a mansion for (and by) architect Santiago Medina Mejia in 1946. But the impeccably preserved home has been reborn as the hot place to stay in Bogotá’s booming epicurean haven, Zona G. Half of the 62 rooms are in the original estate; with slanted wooden beams, hand-carved doors, and fireplaces, they retain the intimacy of a residential guesthouse. (The rest are in a neighboring annex built in 1988; some of these are slightly more spacious.) All include Nespresso machines for Colombian coffee on demand and access to a full-service spa, where treatments incorporate the local ingredient of choice: gold. Be sure to stop by the sun-filled courtyard that connects the two buildings. It’s now covered with a glass roof and includes an all-day Spanish restaurant, Castanyoles, where you can grab pastries with house-made jams by day or dine on tapas under the glow of string lights by night.
