I met with one of the owners of Las Alcobas almost exactly a year ago. At that point the hotel was quite far along and the lobby furniture had already been delivered. It looked like only a matter of weeks until the doors would open and guests would arrive.
Alas, Mexico got hit with a triple whammy of woes after that and they decided it was not the best of times to make a big splash and take a huge risk of opening an empty hotel. Not too many visitors were intrepid enough to land in Mexico City when the whole H1N1 scare broke out.
Thankfully, we’re a year closer to better times and Las Alcobas has opened its doors. Designed by Yabu Pushelberg in a style best described as Mad Men meets Milan, it’s chic, organic, and enticing, with a style like nothing else in the city. With just 35 rooms and a personal concierge at your beck and call, this is the place to land if you want to rub shoulders with the rich and famous in Mexico City’s ritzy neighborhood of Polanco.
