He everyone! Thanks for the quick answers. I am booked at the St. Regis but want to make sure this hotel is just not a business hotel in a business district. Is the in the popular part of town or am I going to have to taxi everywhere? I want to be able to just hit the road and find everything fairly close. I don't want to spend my time in a cab or hiring a driver all the time. I like being in the middle of it all. Is this the right place? Or, should I look elsewhere and if so, where?
You have restos right in the area (walkable, and yes, it's safe), you have a bakery and wine shop across the street, and you have a metro (and yes, it's safe) not 5 minutes away. I did Ubers and then relied on taxis--none of them fleeced me.
Mexico City is a big sprawling city. You will need to Uber to get around or hire a local guide/driver if you want to cover the major tourist sights (a our guide isvery good option if you want to understand what you are seeing). The hotel is in a good location for restaurants and you can safely walk around the area. It also has nice amenities, a good bar, and great service.
