We stayed at the end of September for four nights as part of a trade show. The room, although small, was comfortable. We were on the top floor. Advantage there is the proximity to the rooftop deck overlooking the cathedral and a WONDERFUL place to watch the Saturday night Fireworks. When it started to rain, there was a little pavilion we were all under - plenty of room and we stayed dry. I think the disadvantage to the top floor is that the rooms for the most part are smaller. Our first room had a brick wall behind the window curtain, so we asked to change rooms. The room we moved to, two doors down, had a window, but it looked into a courtyard surrounded by other rooms. Looking up for the sky, we saw a corrugated plastic skylight, so we has no real view of the outside.
Cons: Items missing from the room that I have come to expect in a luxury hotel: clock, window to the outside, hair dryer (more on that later*), pen, amenities like body cream. Staff not as friendly as they could be.
Pros: Location - right across from the cathedral, stores and historic area. Beautiful, too. Room and bed are comfortable, walking distance to everywhere in the historic district.
*Hairdryer: I asked if they had a hairdryer I could use. First, I was told I could "call the desk and they would let me know when it would be available." Well, on a busy schedule of meetings and functions I could not set my schedule around the hair dryer. One afternoon I decided to go to the front desk and ask if it was available. They said they could give it to me, but only if I gave them a 200 Peso deposit which would be returned to me when I returned the dryer! I had to go back to the room, get the money, and come back down.
