I stayed in the Crowne Plaza in Tlalnepantla for 7 days in order to avoid the horrible traffic jams of Mexico City in the morning when going to the office a bit further north.
And that’s the main reason why you should stay in the place: you need to be in the area.
The immediate neighborhood is OK and pretty safe but not inviting to go for a walk, especially not after dark.
If you’re visiting Mexico City for tourist purposes, you better pick a hotel downtown. The trip to Zócalo takes you 40 minutes during the weekend and 1-2h during rush hour.
The hotel itself is quite nice but in need of a modernization.
Without exception, the staff of the hotel is very friendly and helpful.
I took an upgrade for one night to an Executive room at the 7th floor as there was no regular room yet free during my check-in in the morning. Afterwards, I changed to a standard room and comparing both, the difference is too little to pay double the price for such an Executive room.
The lobby bar is 80s chique but very lonely when you’re still in the hotel during the weekend. It emphasizes the fact that this is a pure business hotel.
Breakfast is served in the adjacent restaurant and is oriented to the Mexican taste.
In summary, good hotel if you want/need to stay in Tlalnepantla.
