Modern Mexican might be the best description of the Las Alcobas aesthetic. Rooms at the boutique hotel (now part of the Luxury Collection) are decorated in subdued colors, with custom-made rosewood furniture and hand-stitched leather wall treatments as accents. Subtle references to Mexican tradition and culture are seen in the amenities, too, including the handmade soaps—made with ingredients such as vanilla, cacao, and cactus paddle—that are brought to the guest's room upon check-in, along with a refreshing welcome drink. Service is attentive and efficient but never intrusive. And while the hotel sits in a plum position on upscale Polanco's busiest thoroughfare, you'd never know it, thanks to soundproofed windows that ensure a good night's sleep. There are two restaurants on site, Anatol and Dulce Patria; the latter is an award-winning hot spot that's listed on the current 50 Best Restaurants in Latin America list, published by Restaurant Magazine. Here, expect full Mexican flavor in contemporary interpretations of Mexican classics, always served with a whimsical touch.
