W Hotel, Bogotá

 "A year after opening, the W Bogota has not only solidified itself as the Colombian capital’s hippest place to stay, but also the hottest spot to dine, drink and mingle. Located in the upscale Santa Barbara neighborhood and close to über-hip Usaquen, the hotel’s on-site restaurant (Market Kitchen), bar (W Lounge) and nightclub (Au Room) are just as popular among fancy “rolos” (what Bogota locals call themselves) and the city’s cool, young visitors who fill its 168 rooms. The vibe throughout the property is electric, punctuated by a top-notch food and beverage program: Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Culinary Concepts is behind Market Kitchen, where chef Emiliano Rabía Sottil’s varied, delicious farm-to-table menu runs the gamut from steak tartare and squash blossom beignets to spaghetti and short ribs." - NY Post
