I impulsively bought a ticket to Mexico city because 1) I've never been. 2) It was my fraternity bro's bday! I was greeted by very friendly faces in the valet. I walked up to check in but was directed to the executive lounge because of my status. I ascended to the 16th floor: Got my keys; A salad; a couple sandwiches; and then retreated to my room.
I was given a corner room with a nice view of "Calle Reforma" You can kind of see the Angel of Independence in the distance (there's actually an incredible view from the terrace in the concierge lounge). The room was very comfortable. It was just me alone so I didn't need that much space.
The bed was heavenly. Very comfy sheets and pillows. Bathroom was kind of awkward with the way the door opened into it. But it was nicely decorated. And had a myriad of products to use: lotion, shampoo, body wash, handwash... etc
The hotel was definitely modern. Had all the amenities an american hotel would offer.
The pool was quaint. Small but comfy. shallow. only good for laps really. or cooling off. After climbing over 1000 steps at the pyramids in Teotihuacan I sat in the hot tub for like ever... it was perfect.
My overall impression of the hotel is great. Good service. Amicable staff. My only gripe is that my guest (friends) had to check in and leave their IDs while they were in my room. It would have been a pain if i would have met a lady friend.... which i didn't. so you dodged a bullet marriott!
I told the concierge agent that I was going to have visitors. I wasn't told that I would have to go through all their polity and what not.
The hotel is right in the zona rosa... I literally exited and circumvented the building and bam! there it was... It was like a 7 minute walk to the Insurgentes Metro Station. The Roma district is about a 20 minute walk. Taxis to polanco or condessa are 50-80 pesos (a few bucks). And the angel de independencia is like 100 yards away... There was a bus stop across the street which was awesome cuz I could take a bus from La alameda for 5 pesos... (like 40 cents).
The location is pretty awesome! :)
FYI: for elites... there is light dinner in the concierge lounge. And breakfast. I never made it to breakfast because it's from 6-9am (4-7am PST)... But I was up in time to grab small bites. They always had something... the food on the first night was pretty good. Friday fish night i wasn't too crazy about cuz i'm not a seafood eater. But they had paella and salmon and shrimp soup. All kinds of stuff... I stuck to ham sandwiches. :)
I would definitely return.
