Hotel star rating:
Spain's open-minded Room Mate Hotel chain now has a Mexico City outpost: the Valentina in Zona Rosa in the building that formerly house the Marco Polo. Room Mate is known for its contemporary, risk-taking design sense and for a slightly odd practice: each hotel is named after an invented character whose backstory is prominently told in the hotel's concept and marketing. "Valentina" is an architect and an active mountaineer.
Architect-designer Tomás Alía has given the Valentina a slightly futuristic look, a bit spare perhaps but enlivened by neo-Pop Art graphics. Guest rooms vary in accent colors: designer white provides a neutral background for use playful accent colors like pink and teal or shades of green. Curving headboards back the beds that are cleanly and simply dressed.
Gay guests will appreciate the Valentina's proximity to such bars as BoyBar and Nicho.
