If I ever stayed a better hotel, I simply cannot remember one.
It started with the reception, the second our taxi arrived where our bags were unloaded by hotel staff and taken to the front desk while we were checked in by a very friendly young lady.
Check in could not have been smoother, no wait, just smiles.
We were then taken to our room in one of the original 1800's elevators....WOW !!
Once at our room, we were shown all of the little details and were left alone to draw the curtains to the incredible nighttime sight of Zocalo !!
WHAT A VIEW !!!!
The restaurants...The food was only overshadowed by the great service.
The view on the rooftop restaurant was simply amazing !!
A little side note....On our day of departure, on arrival at the airport, my wife realized that she was missing a bracelet.
She called the front desk and they sent someone to our room to look for it.
They discovered it had dropped behind her night stand and they had a driver deliver it to the airport and it was back on her wrist in 30 minutes !!
