Casa de Liza, San Miguel de Allende $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
In its former lives, Casa Liza was a 17th-century colonial estate, and later the home of famed Mexican opera and theater star José Mojica. But that was before New York expat Liza Kisber transformed it in the late 1980s into a stylish B&B, complete with period antiques, local artwork, traditionally landscaped gardens, and outdoor Jacuzzi. The hotel's nine suites and casitas, along with a separate two-story villa, are individually decorated. Most have baths and kitchens decorated with Talavera tiles; all have kilims and Oriental rugs, beds with ornate linens, and private patios. The staff will happily arrange classes on local cuisine, crafts, horseback riding and yoga.
