As much a work of art as a hotel, this modern 15-room inn attracts architecture buffs and art lovers with its retro stamped-tin walls, curlicue ceiling murals, and antique bentwood chairs. The design combines elements of traditional San Miguel—stone walls and arched windows—with more contemporary touches, such as white lacquered dressers and cherrywood vanities around silver sinks. The modernist style, with open closets and shelves, demands a certain level of tidiness, while patchwork duvets and goose-down comforters on the beds and soft-glow reading lamps on the nightstands make for a cozy ambience. Paintings from the adjacent gallery adorn the guest rooms, along with black-and-white family photos. Some two-story suites overlook the circular pool set in a brick courtyard. The neighborhood is chockablock with restaurants and bars, making it a convenient base for those in search of nightlife.—Maribeth Mellin
