Tried and True: Consistently Great Hotels in Mexico

It's always fun to read about the newest properties. The 'in' places. The Travel + Leisure Hot list. It's also exciting to check them out and put them on our bucket list. We do it too. Having said that, we happen to think it's pretty amazing to be on another list. The we-set-the-standard list. The we've-been-consistently-great list. And don't just take it from us. The following hotels have had great reviews over and over again. For over 10 years. They've reinvented themselves when required, they've grown with the industry and they've listened to their guests. They make people happy. Often. We like that and we think you might like that too. 

So here's to those that have inspired many others. The tried and true. May they enjoy continued success and may you get to know-or rediscover-them during your Mexico travels.

La Casona
La Casona * Mexico City 
Snazzier accommodations have sprouted in Mexico City but this classic, small hotel holds its own and is a haven for those that want an elegant, old-world feel and service. Plus, it's in a very convenient location  We have a 9-time repeat guest for this hotel. He feels comfortable and important. We appreciate that.
Villa Montaña
Villa Montana * Morelia 
When it comes to keeping the boutique crown in a destination known for its gorgeous architecture, majestically overlooking Morelia doesn't hurt. Add regal attention and you're set for the long haul.  This is stylish service we love, and it's a must in Michoacan.  
Casa de Mita * Punta de Mita
The name change may have temporarily nudged this amazing little hotel off the radar (it was Casa las Brisas) but this classic case of amazing WOM (word of mouth) kept its top spot. Too many repeat guests to count at this property and it just gets better & better. Beach for two? This is a sure thing. A great one.
Quinta Las Acacias * Guanajuato
First, if you've never been to this city, put it on your list now. Seriously. You've never seen anything like it and it will charm you beyond words. Now, the hotel. Well it's just grown so beautifully from a family mansion to a superbly designed pied-à-terre that is perfect for discovering this magical destination.
Hacienda los Laureles
Hacienda los Laureles * Oaxaca
We love a hotelier who does his own gardening. This hotel grew with passion for hospitality, a green thumb and love of Mexico. It's not in downtown Oaxaca but that's just perfect. Stroll, shop and site-see during the day, then escape to a silent hideaway for a great meal and an even better night's sleep.
Los santos
Hacienda de los Santos * Alamos
When you match passion for hospitality with an expert eye for architecture and decor, then add a deep love for Mexico, you're going to get something quite spectacular. Case in point, this Hacienda is not only gorgeous, it's welcoming, inspiring and deliciously luxurious, in a non-pretentious way.
Los Juaninos * Morelia 
Perfectly located historical building serves some of the best regional cuisine in the state. That's the headline and it's true. Los Juaninos is an icon in downtown Morelia and what we like to call; a restaurant with rooms. Food is the focus but comfort and elegance are not left behind. Historical hospitality at its finest.
Hacienda Xcanatun
Hacienda Xcanatun * Merida
Patience, passion and yes, a slight obsession for perfection turned what was once a refined residence into a polished, historically correct and modernly enhanced premiere getaway. Outside your doorstep, the Yucatan has much to offer but you'll appreciate wining, dining, spa-ing and sleeping within these very pretty walls. 
Meson Sacristia
Meson Sacristia de la Compania * Puebla
The food. It's memorable! Typical. Tasty. And in our case, addictive. This tiny hotel is a quintessential representative of the local culture and perfectly blends the family's antique collection with mexican folklore, contemporary amenities and charming hosts. Want to know Puebla? Stay with true ambassadors.
Villa Ganz
Villa Ganz * Guadalajara
You know how you wish you had a very chic friend in a big city that would show you around and make sure you attend the best events, shop the right stores and discover that cool city subculture most won't ever know about? Meet your friend in Guadalajara. A stylish hotel that truly welcomes and guides you all the way.
