The pool at Hotel Matilda in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

The legendary colonial town of San Miguel is known for its historic character, and that's what makes this art-centric boutique hotel stand out. Contemporary without being cold, it was designed by Enrique Olvera and is awash in unique details, such as mirrors engraved with whimsical sayings in Spanish and English, and accents that look like a tasteful great-aunt's prized heirlooms. Guest rooms and suites offer notable extras: soaking tubs, skyline-view terraces and choice pieces from the hotel's art collection, including works by Mexico City photographer Eduardo Zaylan. The elegant Spa Matilda offers personalized treatments that incorporate hand-blended apothecary products. At on-site Moxi, international favorites take new form as they meet the flavors of Mexico's markets, street food and beloved home cooking.
