Say Tel Aviv and one of the first things that comes to mind is sand – lots of it. Tel Aviv’s famed Mediterranean beachfront stretches more than ten miles from north to south, and is lined by mainly high-rise beach hotels that at first glance put the definitive stamp on the city’s touristic character. Collectively, however, they’re only one chapter in a far more interesting book whose pages are made up of a tangle of boulevards and side streets turned away from the coastal fray. That’s where you’ll the best Bauhaus architecture, coolest restaurants, and increasingly, the most interesting boutique hotels.

The historic Henley Park served as home to notable Senators and Congressmen in the early-20th century.

Formal tea is even served each day in a traditional drawing room that once served as the politicians’ parlor.
Rooms include antique furnishings, flat panel TVs, and free WiFi. The hotel also features a fitness room, a Zagat-rated restaurant, and a cocktail lounge with live music on the weekends.

Quinta Las Acacias
Housed in a French-style mansion originally built in 1890, Quinta Las Acacias’ main building harkens back to that era with period-style furnishings and photographs of the former residents on the walls. However, you should definitely splurge on one of the Jacuzzi suites in the buildings behind (just avoid La Puerepecha, which has no natural light). You won’t find flat-screen TVs and the Wi-Fi can be spotty but this 17-room AAA Four Diamond property doesn’t disappoint on ambience. Jacuzzi suites start at $275/night, with breakfast included. www.quintalasacacias.com.mx
