San Miguel de Allende will welcome a new boutique hotel in January. The Hotel Amparo, built in the private residence of past mayors, dates back more than 300 years. The space showcases both original Spanish architecture as well as decorative influences from France, India and Denmark.
Guests enter the property through tall, dark, wood-plank doors, across a floor of original tiles. Inside exposed beams pop against white walls with a yellow, green, blue, and red color scheme.
The hotel will feature a high-end coffee bar, which will have La Marzocco espresso machines. The coffee bar will have terrace seating and will be open to both guests and the public. A rooftop bar will have a lengthy wine list. Guests will have experiences available, such as tours of local markets with resident artisans, culinary classes in the teaching kitchen and experiential workshops. A gallery concierge service will help with the purchasing and shipping of art and crafts in the area, as well.
Rates will start at $325, which will include daily breakfast happy hour on the terrace, and an evening dessert hour.
