C and G Weekend

Nice hotel but quite a bit different by design from Starwood's Weston or Sheraton Hotels. We stayed during Easter week which is traditionally a slow week for this hotel thus many of the facilities were undergoing maintenance. One note is the beds advertised as 2 queens are really 2 double beds based on my measurements. The location is great, the food adequate and the rooms clean but like Marriott, Starwood is now charging what I consider to be outrageous fees on a per device basis for WiFi service. As a business traveller I expect any good hotel to include reliable secure WiFi as part of their room charge and so I will not be returning to this hotel on my next visit to Mexico City.

Worn down

The W is in a great location, but the rooms are worn down. They charge a lot for breakfast, internet, taxis, etc. The rooms have no places to comfortably sit and are more designed for people on drugs rather than comfort. I have never seen such large rooms, but have no seating. The sink is in an odd place. The fact that the toilet runs and is so loud, friend had the same problem in another room. The fact that they "fixed" it by placing a piece of wood speaks to the overall quality of the place. Good place to go party, but you are overpaying for a place that looks a lot better in photos than reality.

Awesome hotel but renovations are needed.

The location, staff, and everything else regarding the hotel are great. I only had a problem with the obvious need for repair in their rooms. The lighting fixture was cracked, the counter tops were chipped and dirty, and worst of all the walls had marks on them. Once I spoke to the Welcome Desk they were able to help but the hotel needs some minor renovations.

Maserik Street is a short walk away from the hotel and you can find anything there. There is also an outside market on Saturdays in the park near the hotel. Great place to VISIT!

I think this hotel used to be "cool" - but it needs a reno

The hotel is in a FANTASTIC location - - you could not ask for a better place - right in Polanco near lots of attractions, parks and places to eat -- upscale shopping if you are into that too. The hotel really needs to be updated. It almsot looks like it has not been touched since it first opened. The rooms are rather dark due to lack of windows and red painted ceilings -- so it is not very fresh. I like hip hotels - -but this one kind of misses the mark in today's market.

Family Christmas Getaway

My family and I decided to stay in Mexico a few more days after Christmas. We decided to stay in the Polanco area which was great, because there were great surrounding restaurants and museums. We were looking forward to staying at the W hotel because if the chains reputation. Unfortunately this hotel did not live up to its reputation. When we arrived the bathroom wasn't clean along with some parts of the room. We did notify the hotel and they were very attentive and apologetic about the matter.

Definitely a disappointment!

The hotel is classified as a 5-star hotel but it is definitely not a 5-star hotel. The room interior looks and feels over-used. White floor tiles used to look sleek and clean and now look old. We were not told that the ground floor bar, which was one of the coolest bars in Mexico City was being remodelled. So there was no reason to stay in the evenings at the hotel. Definitely not a good experience!

W Mexico City

Friendly staff, great location, good attractions nearby. Free water in room a benefit, however, the pricing for everything else in-room is completely overpriced (wasn't surprised by this, just the way it is everywhere).

Perfect location

The staff were extremely helpful on every level, and very kind. There were a few issues, but were dealth with professionally and resolved quickly. The area is one of the nicest parts of the entire city. It is quiet, has some lovely parks, great landscaping. The mix of architecture, great restaurants and incredibly nice people make it a perfect oasis in a city of 25 million people. Highly recommended !
