view web site ›'s insider take:

The talk of the town and a magnet for chic chilangos (from Mexico City), this edgy boutique hotel a few blocks from the Jardín takes San Miguel's art rep to a new level. Paintings, photographs, and sculptures from Mexico's finest contemporary artists fill spare, white spaces in two Cubist buildings with 32 rooms and suites, plus a spa, restaurant, and sophisticated bar. Spencer Tunick's photo of thousands of nude people gathered in Mexico City's Zócalo wallpapers the lounge restroom; a reproduction of Diego Rivera's The Archer and a portrait of owner Harold Stream's mother join works by Bosco Sodi, Nacho Rodríguez Bach, and Aldo Chaparro in the library lounge and bar. Visuals aside, it's the comforting details in the graphite-and-white rooms that make Matilda so delightful. Low beds with padded-leather headboards are dressed in Vivenda 400-thread-count linens and cashmere throws; wall-length white lacquered countertops act as desk space with all necessary outlets and cables plus a 42-inch flat-screen TV; large Calcutta-marble bathrooms are outfitted with freestanding tubs and stocked with Malin+Goetz toiletries. An aromatherapy hammam and heavenly chromotherapy tub augment the spa's more standard treatments. Best of all, there's none of that too-cool-for-you snootiness so common to hip hotels.—Maribeth Mellin
