Unlike most small boutique B & B hotels in the area, the Matilda is truly a luxury, urban retreat with touches of Mexico via great Mexican art and accessories. The designer intentionally selected important Mexican pieces and isolated them to celebrate them. The overall palette is neutral with lots of taupes, grays, browns and beiges. My feeling is that it does not compete with the cobblestones and the colorful, colonial architecture of San Miguel, buy instead it gives you a sleek modern place to come back to and absorb the beauty of San Miguel.
The interior designer of the project, Ray Booth of McAlpine, Booth and Ferrier Interiors, did a fantastic job in creating this tranquil, modern, elegant space that is a little gem of a hideaway in the otherwise traditional colonial town of San Miguel de Allende.
If you find yourself in San Miguel, I highly recommend you making the Hotel Matilda your home away from home.
