La Valise, Mexico City
It’s always cool to be first— especially when it comes to boutique hotels. An achingly hip little hotel called La Valise in Mexico City is the place you must go next. This three-suite property, located above a shop in a 1920s townhouse in the happening Roma neighborhood, has been referred to as “a shop with rooms” by the press.
This petite urban refuge is the project of the French-born Emmanuel Picault, a designer known for creating chic shops including Chic By Accident and the nightclub M.N.Roy in Mexico City. This longtime denizen of D.F.’s most stylish new neighborhood, La Roma has now opened La Valise, a concept hotel featuring pieces “Designed and Made in Mexico.”
Each suite has something unique. El Patio, as the name suggests, features a breezy patio complete with a leather swing and a hammock handmade by artisans in the Yucatán. La Luna, with pale hardwood floors, vintage lamps, and a hallway painted pink, has more of a Frida Kahlo-inspired feel. Lastly, La Terraza is the most lavish with a king-sized bed that rolls from the bedroom to the open air terrace. This suite also happens to be conveniently equipped with a movie projector. Once you check in it will be hard to find a reason to venture out! All three suites come with 600-thread count Egyptian cotton linens, large bathtubs, walk-in showers, Nespresso machines and 40-inch LED flat-screen TVs.
There is also round-the-clock room service from the hotel’s award winning chef, Elena Reygadas. So what are you waiting for this is the ultimate travel brag. Book this ASAP! There are only three suites!
