Stayed here on points, don't think we could afford this place otherwise. Even so, good value because we got a gift of points at check-in and breakfast buffet was included because we are Platinum Elite members. Staff was very professional. Public spaces are gorgeous, cool and calming. That 8th floor terrace is very peaceful, it was a good spot to take a sightseeing break and read a book and sip something cool, with comfy sofas, etc., and awesome views. Rooms are very modern and very clean, bathrooms are spacious made up entirely of green marble.Big flat screen TV. Rollaways available. Spacious closets and a small cooler fridge too. If you do get the breakfast buffet, we recommend considering it brunch, since it's open til 11am or 12n, it has everything you could possibly wish for, very high end. Highly convenient downtown location. Excellent workout space. Only thing would have been nice to have is a pool. Even the hallways are chi-chi.... we loved this place, can say enough nice things about it and highly recommend it. N.B.1. If you are allergic to feathers, be warned, there are feather beds and they won't remove them even if you ask, but you can get foam pillows, and 2. if your cabbie doesn't know which hotel it is, just tell him "es el viejo Hotel Diplomatic".
