La Valise Hotel
Mexico City has no shortage of boutique hotels characterized by thoughtful design details, but something about La Valise is particularly special. The hotel, with just three suites, is located inside an early 20th-century French-inspired building. It's hard to resist grabbing your smartphone and Instagramming the crocodile-skin covered tables and the Yucatecan hammock and leather swing hung against the backdrop of a black-and-white tiled patio, an optical illusion that evokes M.C. Escher's impossible cubes. Book La Terraza, the terrace suite, with a king-size bed that rolls from the room's interior to the terrace so you can sleep under the stars if you choose. The bathtub and walk-in shower with Baja Botanica toiletries, a Nespresso coffeemaker, and a full entertainment system might tempt you to spend more time inside than out. Can't get La Terraza? Don't worry, the Patio and Luna suites are equally irresistible.
