Best Hotels for Creatives in North America

Seek out inspiration at one of these incredible, awe-inspiring North American properties, all of which are sure to spark creativity. From a mountain hideout in New York to a beachfront Mexican oasis, read on for our hand-curated hotel picks for creatives.


The Roxbury at Stratton Falls (@theroxburyexperience): The Catskills, NY

This idyllic mountain oasis, owned by former set designer Joseph Massa, seamlessly marries creativity and luxury. Reserve one of the Tower Cottages Rooms, each of which features a distinct design theme. Accommodations include a Wonder Woman and Roy Lichenstein-inspired hideout, an Ancient Greek-designed cottage, and a fairytale-worthy oasis inspired by Cinderella herself.


La Fonda on The Plaza (@lafondasantafe): Santa Fe, NM

La Fonda on The Plaza — which dates back nearly 100 years — is a popular spot amongst history lovers, architecture buffs, and art enthusiasts. Its striking Southwestern-inspired facade is just as eye-catching as its interiors, which house an extensive collection of Pueblo and Native American artworks. Take solace in the hand-carved beams, sculptured corbels, hand-crafted, eye-catching chandeliers, bespoke furnishings, and hand-painted tiles.


The Nines (@thenineshotel): Portland, OR

It’s no surprise that the ultra-hip city of Portland is home to equally-as-cool hotels like The Nines. Housed in a 1908-era departure store, the property is decorated with custom, commissioned artwork — paintings, sculptures, and installations — all created by local artists. Perhaps the most magnificent highlight is the sun-drenched, seven-story atrium, followed by The Library (which features a custom-made pool table and an extensive collection of books).


Palmaïa – The House of Aia (@thehouseofaia): Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Who said Riviera Maya is only for all-inclusives? This wellness-centric, ultra-luxe beachfront resort serves as an ideal oasis for relaxation seekers and nature lovers. The only thing more magnificent than the postcard-worthy surroundings is the property’s curated programming (think meditation, astrology, yoga, and art classes) and plant-based dining options. There’s even an on-site shaman.
