From the moment my wife and I arrived at the hotel, we felt we had arrived somewhere special. The staff was very friendly, perhaps the fact that I spoke fluent Spanish helped, but I have a feeling you would be well taken care of even if you didn't.
We stayed on the fifth floor, European room, king size bed, with a breathtaking view of Chapultepec. You will hear a little of the traffic from the street at night, so if you are a finicky sleeper about noise, I suggest you bring ear plugs (I did, and slept like a champ - the mattress and the pillows were delicious). Perhaps next time I will book a room higher up. The bathroom was great, and the bedroom spacious. The cleaning staff did an excellent job, we stayed there 6 nights.
You are walking distance from Chapultepec and the museums. You feel safe walking around the area. Everywhere we went, we used the hotel taxi. The going rate is about $20 U.S. an hour, which given the quality and comfort you get in return, is a remarkable deal. I highly recommend it.
I recommend hitting up the OXXO (it's like the 7 Eleven in Mexico) to stock up on snacks and water. Ask the staff for directions, it's literally two blocks away. There's an ATM a block away. A great taco spot is El Fogoncito. They're open till 4 am. You can't go wrong hitting that up, along with the wine store next door. Try the Baja California red wine, it's excellent.
As for dining, try Xanat at the Marriot, and the Central Brasserie, both in Polanco.
