Went to mexico city on business, stayed at the W which is one of the more trendy hotels in the area. I've been to W hotels and I'm aware of the designery queues so it was no suprise this was the case here. It was a welcome change considering how rough Mexico City is, its a real contrast in how different social classes enjoy the city.
checkin was uneventful, staff was very helpful and i was in my room in no time.
The room is a pretty good size, the shower / bathroom has no doors on it to seperate it as a new room, rather instead they take up the end of the room with a floor to ceiling window with the mexico city landscape. It takes some getting used to and actually it was problematic on the first day because i like to take really hot showers and before i knew it the whole room was steamed up. So much so that the fire alarm went off.. oops.
It was rather embarassing but apparently it happens on occasion so the staff came up but they werent all that alarmed.
The decor had some nice touches.
It felt like a modern design that was actually modern and not the fake modern that cheaper hotels claim to fake on you.
The shower had a hammock in it .. im not sure what that was all about but it had a wall of jets and it was a surreal experience showering with a huge window overlooking the city in the distance. The bed was really comfortable, its very low to the ground tho so if you have bad knees or something its probably not going to be to your liking.
Everything is overpriced as expected, the bar area had some beautiful but very snobby patrons. On business this didnt bother me much but as a tourist i'd probably be really turned off.
You really get turned off from feeling comfortable.
The restaurant had some good food. It wasnt as pricey as I expected and the food was quite good.
Overall, i wouldnt stay here as a tourist however if i am there on business it is a step above on where you could be staying.
I wasnt that fond of mexico city in general.
