• The Red Treehouse: In a town where corporate hotels and jam-packed hostels are the norm, it's rare to find something in between, especially a place as comfortable as the Red Tree House. The original house was built in the 1930s and served as a resting place for visiting artists, writers, and musicians. It retains that immediate feeling of welcome today. The delightful staff can help with everything from arranging taxi pickup to suggesting local dining options.
  • W Mexico City: This dramatic 26-story business hotel is a sophisticated mixture of style, comfort, and technology. Rooms are striking, with floor-to-ceiling photo murals, feather beds, terrazzo floors, plasma TVs, and a spacious and comfortable work area.
  • El Patio 77: This off-the-beaten path B&B charms guests with its artsy sensibilities—throughout the house are wonderful pieces by Mexico City artists, mixed with the folk art the owner brings home from his travels across Mexico (along with running the B&B, he works as a social worker with indigenous Mexican tribes). Plus the breakfasts are superb. A top pick, and an affordable one to boot.
  • Hotel Four Seasons: One of the finest hotels in Mexico, the Four Seasons sets the standard for service with a staff noted for gracious manners. In the style of a colonial-era palace, the hotel features a central courtyard surrounded by sumptuous guest rooms, a restaurant, and a bar.
