In my second trip to México, I stayed two nights at Hilton Reforma to attend an event at the center.
The property has all usual Hilton standards that I know from another Latin American hotels from this chain, and is perfectly located in the heart of México City, facing a 400-years-old park surrounded by museums and a beautiful theater, and so is perfect for the business traveler with some, but not much, time to explore the city in between his/her professional activities. The neighborhood is pretty safe to walk, as I did it at least twice a day going to and back from the event, held at a beautiful colonial bulinding in front of the National Museum of Art. There was always a policeman nearby on the streetwalk.
It was heavily guarded by the riot police because of a teacher's protest on the center just as I left to the airport, but the demonstrations were peaceful as they passed by the hotel.
Also, since it's among the tallest buildings on the center, staying in the upper floors (I was on the 19th out of 27) means you get a panoramic unrestricted view.
Los Dones restaurant, where I had my meals everyday, is worth trying: good mexican and international food.
Don't know if I would stay there on my own funds, since you can get better value for money elsewhere, but without a doubt it's a fantastic place to stay.
