Just returned from 3 nights at Emporio Reforma. It is a smallish hotel, looks stylish throughout. Seemed to have several security people in the lobby at all times.
We stayed in a Junior Suite, 610. It has a separate living area with a chaise lounge and chair; this is open to the bedroom, making both areas seem bigger. A nice touch was the tv and dvd pivoted so as to be viewed from either area. By "normal" US standards the suite might be a regular sized room. There was a small closet but tons of drawers. In the closet is a small safe which we utilized and had no problems with. The bath is a decent size, jacuzzi tub that produced some disturbing dirt after use, but not unexpected, the shower was great. We were supplied with 2 bottles of water per day. The decor in the room was contemporary but the door looked very old and motel-ish. The lobby was attractive. There was supposedly internet access via cord in the room but we could not get it to work. There is free wifi in the first 2 floors but you have to get a code from the desk in order to activate it, but worked great. The room was very clean. Also our room was not connected to any other rooms, so other than hallway noise, was very quiet.
The hotel is in a business area, atm's very near by and also money exchangers. One of my biggest gripes is that the hotel did not seem to have a concierge. Our welcome at the hotel was less than warm, but how many hotels in large cities are that welcoming?
The food at breakfast was good. They certainly prefer you eat off the buffet than order off the menu. The buffet had several types of fruit, ham, cheese and cottage cheese, yogurt. The hot foods consisted of chili quiles, scrambled eggs, etc. We enjoyed having quesadillas made to order. Dinner service is a-la-carte and was OK, but not great.
We walked to the Alameda in maybe 15 minutes. Nice park, but is there not one place in this city that someone doesn't have a stand to sell things? Zocolo is not too far from the Alameda. We actually also walked to Chapultapec park, which was really too far to walk to. That park was fun to stroll through.
Not sure if I would stay here again as a tourist, but doing business in the area, certainly would stay here again. When I return to Mexico City I will probably choose a hotel that is closer to Polanco or Condessa just because those areas are of more interest to me.
