Chapinero, a district in north Bogotá and one of the more affluent parts of the Columbian capital, plays host to the Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogotá, perhaps the top in luxury offerings in the city. 

The property, according to Travel + Leisure, looks as if it’s been there for decades—because it has. The building was constructed in 1946 and has mostly been preserved before being reborn as one of the most chic, and popular, hotels in the city. 

In total, the hotel offers 62 rooms, half of which are in the original estate with the rest in a neighboring annex that was added in 1988. The old rooms kept some of that charm from the original building with hand-carved doors and fireplaces paired with modern touches like Nespresso machines in-room. 

Here is what Forbes has to say about the property: “Elegance meets urban excitement at the Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogotá. Located in the Financial District, the hotel was built in 1946 as a private mansion, and the Spanish Colonial-style hotel has influences of contemporary Colombia. The rooms and suites have marble bathrooms, minibars and custom furniture. It also has a spa with unique relaxation experiences, gourmet restaurants, a fitness center and 24-hour room service.”

The suite is adorned with Columbian art and includes a refrigerated private bar, custom-made Four Seasons beds, a rain shower in its bathrooms, and outdoor terrace that is great for enjoying the region’s weather.

Located in the Santa Barbara district, a section of the city known for its high-end restaurants, bouquet shops, and the city’s only train station, W Hotel Bogotá is another one of the luxury offerings to consider. 

The 168-room hotel is a perfect place to consider if you want to be near the action as the property sits right next to the district’s best restaurants and boutiques, along with a number of international embassies. 

The hotel is ranked number 7 on Travel + Leisure’s list for best hotels in South and Central America and it’s not just T+L that sings its praise. 

Forbes writes in its travel guide “The stylish hotel celebrates the legend of El Dorado in its decor and design, so expect glimpses of sparkling gold throughout the rooms and shared areas of the hotel. The W Hotel Bogotá has a wide range of rooms and suites, and many offer separate rain-forest showers and soaking tubs. The hotel has a state-of-the-art gym with a swimming pool, and it offers treatments such as a couples’ massages in its upscale spa.”

And Conde Nast Traveler says that “You can expect colorful, modern decor in all 168 guest rooms—especially in the Extreme Wow Suite, which includes a king-size bed with floral canopy, avant-garde (and purple!) circular sofa, and 180-degree views of the city’s skyline. Grab brunch or dinner at the Martin Kitchen, then kick back with a drink and live music at the W Lounge. Then it’s back to your room to detox before repeating it all the next day.”

The almost 1,500 sq. ft. Extreme Wow Suite is one of a kind, literally, as the hotel offers just one sole of its kind on site. 

The suite offers a number of extras for those staying in it, including a cappuccino maker, foosball table, and a separate living and dining room. The master bedroom includes a secondary lounge area with a half-moon sofa and custom work desk along. The centerpiece of the room is the signature king-size W bed that includes a canopy crafted from a tactile fabric with a floral motif that references the journey to El Dorado, a legend that can trace its roots back to Colombia. 

Perhaps most impressively is what the suite offers to look at—aside from local flavor in its decor, floor-to-ceiling windows provide 180-degree views to eh city’s skyline and of the Los Cerros Mountain during the day.

Just a quarter mile from Bogotá’s La Zona T area, a T-shaped area that is known as both the prime nightclub district in the city and one of the most upscale parts of Bogotá, sits the Sofitel Bogotá Victoria Regia. 

The 102-room property is named after the Colombian water lily that can be found in the Amazon and includes rooms and suites designed by Miguel Soto, giving the property a feel that is equal parts French, from its Sofitel roots, and Columbian, from the surrounding area. 

Conde Nast calls the property, which was a Reader’s Choice honoree in both 2019 and 2020, “a slice of France in Bogotá’s bustling financial hub.” 

“This hotel imbues Colombian flavor with elegant French touches,” CN writes. “Think velvet furnishings, local artwork on rotation, fresh flowers replaced daily, and Hermes toiletries. The 102 rooms—including five suites—are chic and comfortable, while the restaurant, Basilic, offers French haute cuisine and a sizable wine menu.” 

Forbes calls the hotel a “family-friendly” property (cribs and babysitting services are available) that “combines classic and contemporary design” is just a short walk from the Rockefeller Casino.

Another hotel in the city’s business district, the JW Marriott Hotel Bogotá is typically seen as a destination for those corporate travelers. However, according to Forbes Travel Guide, that’s not all it should be known for. 

“Its proximity to attractions like the Zipaquira Salt Cathedral and other entertainment and dining areas makes leisure seekers check in as well. Both factions enjoy the hotel’s surprisingly varied and dynamic gastronomic scene, which boasts authentic Japanese fare at Nau Sushi Lounge as well as Asian-Latin fusion at Tamarine,” Forbes writes in its Travel Guide. 

“Along with inspiring restaurants, the hotel’s main bar, Circo, is a hot spot for locals just as much as tourists, thanks to the spotlight on up-and-coming Bogotá musicians and salsa performers.” 

The hotel feels very modern, with suites and rooms decorate in contemporary decor, all with large marble bathrooms that also include aromatherapy toiletries. 

The property is a mainstay on Best Of lists, with Conde Nast awarding the property its Reader’s Choice Award in 2018 and Travel + Leisure ranking it 10th on its Best Hotels in Central and South America list.
