After meeting in Miami Beach seven years ago, we knew we had found someone special in one-another. Little did we know that after one year of knowing each other we would be selling everything we owned and launching ourselves on a trip of a lifetime. Sebastian had been calling Mexico a second home since he was six years old, but I had never step foot in the mysterious land. Four months of backpacking through various regions and culturally rich cities was all it took to swoon me over. I fell in love with Mexico at first sight and couldn’t believe the wonders it held. It was while living in Brooklyn, NY that we realized that our true home was Mexico, and we needed to figure out how to live there and start our own business. Working in hospitality allowed us to meet people who would later on in our life become inspirations for our success. The industry has always been our way of life, both of our first jobs were in hotels and restaurants and so it was of no surprise that we would begin to develop our own brand. The Brooklane appeared out of thin air, as a mirage in a glistening golden-sand desert. A dream we both shared soon became a reality with the help of family members who believed in our vision. But the vision proved to be quite the undertaking at just 25 years of age. It has not been an easy journey, but then again a great empire cannot be built in one day, nor is it built without sacrifice. And sacrifices we have made. Five years since the inception of an idea, two years of tedious construction and design have brought us to the present moment. A moment we will forever hold dear in our hearts. It’s quite the wondrous experience, to have something built from the ground up. Allow us to introduce you to our dream, to a story of resilience and perseverance… to a world filled with beauty and sophistication. Welcome to our home, The Brooklane San Miguel.
With twenty years of combined experience in the hospitality industry, our brand encapsulates the best elements of world renowned hotels (SoHo House, W Hotels and SLS) under one roof. Although we are a small-scale hotel, our heart is huge. Our love for hospitality and design transcends the boundaries imposed by cultural differences. Mexico is our home, but The Brooklane is a showcase of our multi-cultural background. We endeavor to create an ambiance that fosters creativity and memorability, and that’s why a majority of our guests are artists looking for a different way of travel. For us our guests are not just strangers looking for a place to rest, they are people who arrive as visitors and leave as friends… sometimes even as family. Thanks to the intimate spaces that make up our home, our guests will have the opportunity to meet and gather with people from all around the world who share similar stories and visions. We hope that our guest-house becomes more than just your home away from home. Our intention is that it will become an incubator for new ideas, new memories and friendships that will last a lifetime or even just a special moment. Because at the end of it all it’s in the small moments that life takes place. Through our meticulous attention to detail we aim to provide the ideal place for your next visit to San Miguel de Allende. A crossroad where culture, design, food, and that insatiable “joie de vivre” converge. We love the world we live in and we love what we do, and that’s why you’ll love staying at The Brooklane.
