W Hotel, Mexico City
A 26-story property in the Polanco neighborhood, W Hotel blends a stylish nightclub vibe with resort-like comforts. Each of the 237 rooms has bright-red walls, contemporary white furniture, and bathrooms with silk hammocks suspended over large, round soaking tubs. The hotel also includes the Solea restaurant, which serves Mexican-inspired steak and seafood dishes, as well as a full-service spa with an indoor pool, fitness area, and traditional adobe sweat lodge. Spend the evening over cocktails at one of two bars, and then take advantage of the unusually late 1 p.m. checkout time.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
