The service and staff at the W were all A-one during our short stay.
We stayed in a "fantastic suite" which included a large round bathtub in the middle of the open floor plan. Very chic and sexy room layout. The bed was amongst the most comfortable we have stayed in.
Walking distance to great restaurants and shopping in the polanco neighbourhood, and steps from Chapultepec park, Ideal location.
The only negative I have is the add-on fees for things like wifi, and gym/pool access, for the price of the rooms, these things should be included in your stay.

I stayed at the W hotel in the Polanco neighbourhood with a few friends while in Mexico City for a football game. The accomodations were first class all the way. Not so cheap but well worth it. The services were fantastic and even though we were budget travellers in the luxurious hotel, our ever need was taken care of 24/7. This high end contemporary hotel was a great stop in a safe neighbourhood with plenty to see and d near by.

I stayed here for 4 nights and I loved it!!! I was here on business but I will definitely stay here next time I am in Mexico City for pleasure. Trendy fun place that focuses on the details. The service was great and they had many english speaking workers which helped me because my spanish isn't great. The bar and restaurant were AMAZING and I really enjoyed people watching in the bar on Thursday night. The gym is sufficient and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. It's also near a few restaurants and high end shoppign area. I love the W and will definitely be back to this hotel!

My main criteria for choosing: the W's location cannot be beat for business and entertainment in Mexico City. From there I could walk to many business meetings and client lunches/dinners.

Reception and concierge are very efficient and courteous. Rooms are spacious and smartly set up. A lot of room for storage. Yes, it is a bit dark and the view from my room was uninspiring, but I could live with it. Only complaint is the hammock: great idea, but not sure it gets washed after every guest, so could not bear myself to use it on account of the potential previous fat hairy guest sitting naked on it!!

Had a few meals at the restaurant. Breakfast menu much better than dinner. Breakfast service is not very clear: is it a buffet, is it a la carte, is it both?

Leisure facilities are a missed opportunity. Big gym, but tiny indoor swimming pool. Both saunas were turned off when I visited, so had to wait for the correct temperature. Spa was really great, had a very relaxing massage.

Most irritating point: as with every Starwood property, internet is not free, and actually very expensive. They have a very nice business centre but I'd rather be able to check my e-mail quickly in my room without having to pay so much.

Will definitely be coming back.

Stayed recently at the W for five nights with my partner and have a mixed opinion. As a SPG Platinum guest we were upgraded to one of the Loft rooms on the top floor with a balcony and large floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city. Beautiful view and the room was nice, though the downstairs sitting and work area is a bit small. Enjoyed the usual W amenities.

But, in our first room the safe, the TV speakers, the printer and none of the telephones worked. So, we waited for a maintenance employee for a while, who eventually suggested to move us to another room. We agreed, and later received a tray with fingerfood and a bottle of Tequila accompanied by a letter from management apologizing for the inconvenience - greatly appreciate the gesture and apology accepted.

But, even though we asked for the second room to be inspected, many things did not work again. The TV speakers were broken and we needed to get them fixed, the balcony door did not close properly and someone had to repair it. The printer/scanner/fax did not work as someone had installed the wrong cartridges - we received the right ones, but I could not figure out how to get the old ones out and no one installed the new ones, so we had to use the business center all the time. And the iPod dock/speakers upstairs did not work properly either.
Also, during the summer storms and rains it gets windy, and the balcony door does not withstand these winds. It bends inwards and creates a gap between the frame and door letting wind and sometimes even rain in. Not great quality.
Additionally, we had to remind someone to refill our minibar with water on three occasions.

We also had a massage at the Away Spa, which was wonderful. The therapists were amazing and all our stress gone in an instant. Also, we could use a very nice jacuzzi, steamroom and sauna. Great facility!

Some criticism about the service, especially at the restaurant: When we showed up for breakfast twice no staff was to be seen anywhere and we had to fetch them from the kitchen to be seated. The waiter treated us with utmost respect afterwards, but this is unnecessary! The food itself at breakfast is at most average quality and in the US I would have sent the Eggs Benedict back.

At checkout I was very impressed by Diana who listened to all the things that went wrong, apologized and suggested a way to make up for the shortcomings, which we accepted. Greatly appreciate her service-mindedness and customer-orientation and for just listening to the problems.

Overall, I expect more from a 4.5 star hotel that charges $250 and more per night and it should not be necessary to experience so many shortcomings in the rooms and service. The W prides itself to be a hip top-end hotel in Mexico City and they should offer service that matches that.

The place is trendy and comfortable, we went there because the Lonely planet guide on Mexico recommend it and added the icon that kids were welcome. The lobby and restaurant are like night clubs, music is loud and light is weak. it is perfect place for singles or childless couples. NOT for families, even the restaurant has no suitable options for kids, the pool is not a pool but a big relaxation tub where we took our baby and employee Efrén Anaya ask us to leave because she was too loud... an 18 month baby!!!!. I felt uncomfortable all the time and don't recommend it for families.
