I'm starting to realize that the party vibe of the W hotel chain and the "Wherever, Whatever, Wet, Widiculousleness" alliteration is not for me. But, this hotel in Mexico city met our expectations in general. The room was nice and big and well appointed, if a bit dark, which extended into the barely-lit hallways. The hammock in the open plan bathroom was a bit contrived, but charming nonetheless. We had a nice view from the bathroom, and the staff was extremely helpful and prompt and we even got a hand-written note on our last day asking how things went. My only problem with the room was that it was a bit dark, and the toilet room was a bit small and without ventilation. The open plan will not be for everyone, but works for a couple.
The hotel lobby is currently under construction, so it is slightly awkward at present. There is a big whiskey bar and nightclub area that seemed alright, and the restaurant on the second floor is quite fancy, but doing a high-end steak and seafood menu that was not very successful, I would not eat there again by choice. The elevators were tiny and slow.
The location of the hotel is perfect in the trendy polanco shopping area, and there are other big hotels nearby, a starbucks across the street, and it is a 15 min walk to the museums and art galleries.
Overall we loved our room and felt the helpful presence of the staff here, so if you like W hotels and dont mind a party, clubby vibe throughout, this could be for you.
