Bogotá’s original hip hotel in glitzy Zona Rosa, with Miami-style interiors and a buzzing terrace restaurant
Bogotá may be the sexy new thing among fashionable globetrotters, but Colombians know that she’s long been a stylish sophisticate. Case in point: the 30-year-old Hotel Charleston. Gleaming checkerboard marble floors, clean-lined buttery leather couches and polished chrome accents welcome you into the buzzy lobby. Huge glass vases of cascading orchids and polished hardwood accents add a touch of tropical warmth, as do the welcoming smiles of the staff.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms show off the Miami-style opulence Bogotá is known for, and the Hotel Charleston helped pioneer the look back in 1983. Even the Standard Rooms are sizable, and it’s not just an illusion enhanced by the huge mirrors and windows, polished chrome and granite. Plush kingsize beds (or two twins) come dressed in high-thread-count sheets, and tech amenities abound, from huge plasma TVs to free iPads to iHome docking stations. Glam bathrooms have fluffy robes and Lotto products.
Get an intro into the local scene at the on-site restaurant, La Biblioteca, where the well-heeled gather for alfresco meals of Colombian-inflected Mediterranean fare. Work off the calories at the full-service gym or over some marathon shopping in the Zona Rosa. You have a lot to live up to if you expect to hang with this Bogotá glamazon, after all.
