Hotel Matilda, located 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).
