The latest in a string of achingly trendy Mexican hotels, La Purificadora is the Habita group's first property in Puebla, near Monterrey. The syndicate's other properties have opened in what are arguably more jet set locations, like Cancun and Mexico City, but that isn't stopping them from bringing trendy design and a party-focused scene to Northern Mexico.

With an open-air lobby, glassed-in pool and rooftop bar, the place stays busy, with music pumping until late, reviewer Tara Fitzgerald reports. Despite the noise, the hit-or-miss service, "patchy" WiFi and shoddy room construction, she declares the Purificadora worth a stay:

[It's] a cool alternative for design-savvy travelers who aren't sticklers for service.

Guess its great location in the heart of town--and at the convention center--makes up for all the miscues.
