I stayed here for 3 nights in a junior suite for a business trip. We chose this area because it is safer compared to many other parts of the city but still "in the heart" of things, and we all felt very safe. There are many restaurants, shops and money exchange places nearby. It is known as La Zona Rosa.
I had a very comfortable, nice and clean room on the first floor, my windows were part of their atrium or El Patio room (which is beautiful) so I had no view but had lovely, light-filtering stained glass instead. In the evening, I closed the heavy-curtains in preparation for when I eventually would go to bed. Since I still had lights on in the room I couldn't tell that there was an issue but once I actually went to bed and turned all the lights off, it was glaringly obvious. Because of the beauty of the atrium and to show it off, hotel staff don't ever want to shut off the lights, the light from that room shines into your room ALL night long while you try to sleep (even with the curtains closed because it shines in from the sides and top since the curtains aren't big enough and arranged in a way to block out that light). If you don't have an issue with light while you sleep, you'll be fine. But if you prefer a cave-like room, this is not the room for you.
On my last night I also found out that all rooms have a scent plug-in, according to the housekeeping staff person who came to remedy this situation this is because all the rooms have a musky odor to them that the hotel just can't get out and need to mask. I wouldn't have noticed except that the plug-in ran out of scent. The A/C is a little loud but if you like white-noise, you won't mind it. By the way, the housekeeping staff was extremely nice and helpful at all hours.
Part of our booking included a breakfast at the Veranda Bistro, the breakfast was tasty and the omelet chef was really nice. Servers treated the male guests/dinners with courtesy and efficiency (I traveled with both male and female coworkers), but seemed to have no interest in providing good service to female dinners. Front desk staff were hit and miss when it came to being helpful.
Bonus: as you exit the hotel's main lobby (but before you make it to the sidewalk), there is a pharmacy/general store on your left hand side that opens early and closes late and on your right hand side there is a Sanborn's Restaurant also open early and closed late.
FYI: I was 7 and 1/2 months pregnant at the time and was overall very pleased with this hotel but especially the location.
