HOSPITALITYDESIGN: Inside the Casa San Pancho Hotel in Guanajuato, Mexico


Will Speros • May 15, 2020

The hotel’s façade and interiors highlight Mexican craftsmanship

To call Casa San Pancho a passion project for Joel Villalon, principal at San Francisco-based BraytonHughes Design Studios, would be an understatement. The hotel is located in Guanajuato, Mexico, among the first places Villalon encountered during his first visit to the country nearly 30 years ago. “The city intrigued me,” he says, “and over the years, I found myself passing through the city and enjoying it every time.” After purchasing the villa that would later become Casa San Pancho, Villalon also learned that his paternal grandfather hailed from a nearby hamlet.

Brickwork reigns at the four-room property, from the pozole-red façade to interiors that showcase the central Mexican city’s celebrated craftsmanship. Meanwhile, terracotta floors and white walls serve as a backdrop for artwork and furniture—most of which was sourced domestically. In addition to the original 2,500-square-foot home, the hotel comprises a new master bedroom suite with a terrace and outdoor stairway. An expanded patio and plunge pool round out the onsite amenities. “The furniture, lighting, carpets, and art have been collected from our travels or from Mexican cities,” says Villalon. “We wanted [the property] to reflect our history together.”
