This was a business trip to Mexico City for a Symposium with hairdressers from Mexico, Latin and Central America. As I do not speak the language and was traveling alone I was a little gun shy about the language barrier but as I checked in there was no problem what so ever. I was greeted and directed to check-in and was given great service and was informed about everything I needed to know about the hotel and what was near by.
The bellman brought up my bags and trunks and made sure I knew how to work everything from the AC to finding the hidden service bar. I do not think he was expecting a tip as the look on his face when I handed him 150 pesos was priceless and he must have thanked me 10 times!
The room was cozy but dark. There was a large window but when I opened it anyone could have see in as the hotel and other buildings were very close. I usually keep my windows open all the time as I love the natural light and to wake up with it as well.
The room was spotless and a little dated but it was a good size with a desk an extra table and a large bench at the end of the bed. The AC was not strong enough for me but I was really only in the room to sleep and adapted to the room not going below 75 degrees F. I like to sleep at about 70 degrees.
The bathroom was large with a jacuzzi and a stand up shower but the shower leaked all over the floor every morning and I had to use 2-3 towels to sop the water up. Still, it did not bother me.
The lobby of the hotel is large with very nice couches, big screen TV and a bar. The 2 restaurants had decent food and the larger one had a great breakfast buffet.
The hotel is just a couple blocks to the Trade Center and the sidewalks are very much in need of repair, ladies, bring an extra pair of shoes! Your heels could be ruined! Lot's of street food vendors and convenience store and pharmacy across the street.
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I had to purchase an ice pack and the concierge actually walked with me to a large grocery store about a block away!
I felt very safe as there were police around everywhere due to the presidential debates that were taking place.
