The hotel is a Mexican classic designed by famed Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta. The rooms are quite large (bigger than most hotel chain guest rooms), many of them (including mine) had a balcony and faced a lush interior courtyard garden. The room had a large bathroom with a large shower stall, with a rain shower head that was adequate but sadly, did not feel like a rain shower.
Room amenities are standard stuff that one would expect - bathroom amenities, large screen TV, minibar, free WiFi, etc. Notably absent was an in-room tea/coffee service.
There is a large choice of restaurants and bars. During my stay, I dines at China Grill and the Bistro. Both were very good - food and service as well.
The approach to the hotel features an amazing fountain that alternates between an angry sea and an illuminated fountain. There are a lot of level changes and therefore steps to navigate which became a bit of an irritation to me. I wondered how physically challenged people would go up and down.
All employees that I interacted with were polite and helpful. Most spoke fluent english.
The hotel was moderately priced compared to similar hotels in Mexico City (I have stayed at the Sheraton and Marriott on Reforma) and is good value for the money.More
