PUG SEAL ALLAN POE
Of the Pug Seal collection (a privately owned Mexican art series hotel group), the Allan Poe is certainly the more handsome.
Most apparent are the dark, masculine shades; robust materials like iron and black marble; and linear art deco details. Sharp, precise and without intruding on one’s purpose of travel: office visits, public speaking, firm handshakes.
Without question, the same thoughtfulness in abstract sculpture, symbolic motifs and custom tapestries have been applied by award-winning local architects, German Velasco, who continue their visual narratives between suite to suite.
A straightforward tufted leather dining room and gold accents evoke Eames, while a curved bar at the foot of the marble staircase resembles a scene you’d expect to find one lighting a vanilla Cuban cigar at sundown.
As one might expect of a gallery, though with the exception of plant life and a sub-tropical breeze off of which ambient playlists softly reverberate, every object has its place.
There is no layering here. No trinkets. No dust to be collected. The Allan Poe is stylish and sophisticated much like a gentleman’s polished brown brogues.
Its tidiness and mellow natural hues are effective so that one might actually get his work done in a swift, clear line of thought.
An assortment of organic toiletries, local baked goods and a la carte breakfast are made available by the intimate hotel staff – who just like pixies, ascend just when you need them.
