Guadala­jara

The low­down Stylish Art Deco city hide­away.

Best for Ur­ban­istas on a bud­get.

The lat­est ad­di­tion to Grupo Habita’s col­lec­tion, Casa Fayette is lo­cated in Guadala­jara’s buzzy Lafayette dis­trict. Ar­chi­tects have made use of the orig­i­nal Art Deco struc­ture and added a tower build­ing to cre­ate a city bolt­hole that merges For­ties grandeur with mod­ern fi­nesse. The 36 rooms range from stan­dard dou­bles to a ‘Top Suite’ with pri­vate ter­race, and each has panoramic win­dows to draw the big skies in. The de­sign packs an eclec­tic feel thanks to Mi­lanese team Di­morestu­dio, who have in­cor­po­rated el­e­ments from both Mex­ico and Europe. The glam­orous bath­rooms are crafted from Car­rara mar­ble and fea­ture claw-foot bath­tubs. Vel­vet so­fas beckon in the com­mu­nal ar­eas, and in the ground-floor restau­rant deep green and gold hues reign. Here, chef Leo­bardo Solano Garcia’s menu fuses Amer­i­can com­fort food with Mex­i­can twists. Com­pli­men­tary bikes are avail­able, or you can hit the ho­tel’s ter­race with its pool and views over the city. There’s also a spa on the top floor of the tower. Book it Stan­dard dou­bles start from around £80 per night (casafayette.com).

From top art Deco de­sign fea­tures in each room; af­ter a steam bath in the spa head to the bar and restau­rant; and the ter­race pool is relaxation cen­tral
