I stayed in the Duke Ellington room, which was on the second floor and considered a business class suite. The suite was lovely and even had a bistro set on the balcony. This is on the second floor, across from a park and with a street in front. If you're a light sleeper I wouldn't suggest this room and would recommend you go higher. For me, a heavy sleeper, it was fine.
The location is great. It's close to markets, banks, shopping, restaurants and anything else you might need but away from the noise. Most of the guests were business men so it remained nice and quiet during the week.
If you want a little more exercise than shopping, they can give you a pass to a gym that is less than a five minute walk away. I get lost easily so I just ran in the park. For those who run, the park out front extends to the right of the hotel and if you loop the whole thing twice, you can get in about 4.5 miles (I started my Garmin late).
Breakfast was included but I never tried it. The hotel service was great and everyone was friendly. Oddly enough, I liked the security guards at the front and the car service guys the most. They were friendlier than the front desk.
One odd note (for me anyway) - they charged me up front for the whole week when I checked in. I've never had to do that at any hotel before and I had no idea they were going to do that (I don't speak Spanish). It was no problem for me but if you're extremely cautious when traveling, that might bother you.
