Marquis Reforma Hotel
Travel Blogs from Mexico City
... There were splashes of rain and as I climbed higher into the mountains, up to 2,700m, it became cold. There was always the promise of clearer skies ahead but it did not warm up. I had to stop and put a fleece on and zip up all the ventilation on my jacket and trousers....unbelievable up to yesterday !!
The scenery was beautiful at times but I was only able to take a couple of pics as often the cloud was very low or I was on the other side of ...
... 3rd degree from the customs officer which I didn't appreciate, it wasn't so much all the questions he was asking me but more the attitude he gave when asking. But I got let in and we got our bags and finding the next terminal for our domestic flight to Phoenix was a lot easier than I expected which was a relief. LAX is like a little city itself, you have to take busses to get from terminal to terminal so we were lucky ours was only a short walk down the road. We ...
A bit stiff after my night on the floor I caught the metro into town where eventually I found my way to a hostel. A mixture of lack of sleep, bad maps and confusing road signs had left me somewhat disorientated. Despite my best intentions of powering through the jet lag after freshening up I quickly found my 5 minute rest turning into a few hours worth of power napping. Luckily I didn't have to much ...
... Last Call"
Rushed down to get the minibus out to aircraft and there were 4 other people waiting and it whizzed off as soon as we were in. I thought "Oh.. at least we're not the only ones in the naughty corner"
When we got to the the plane I laughed out loud as I realised we were the ONLY 6 passengers on the plane! The Stewardess told us we had to sit where we'd been allocated so the plane was properly balanced!
Ha.. and so off down to Huatulco....
... different looking types of fruit and veg. that I keep promising myself I will give them a try despite having no idea what they are. I have also seen loads of mangos and until last week refused to try them. I remember expecting them to taste good when I was in Ethiopia but I was disappointed that they tasted just like they did at home, but here I was amazed to find that I really like the taste…..who would have guessed? I wonder what else I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marquis Reforma Hotel Mexico City
Great 5 star in the City
Great five star hotel in superb location. Terrific free gym, $10 for steam/sauna. My favorite in the City.
Tasteless lobby, fine rooms
Stayed here last month. Very good service, pleasant rooms--I had a great view over Paseo de la Reforma--plus convenient location to subway. But the lobby is overblown--faux Art Deco, really, with horrible sculptures. Good restaurants.
Vestíbulo insípido,habitaciones adecuadas.
Estuve aquí el mes pasado. Muy bueno servicio, las habitaciones son agradables -tenía unas excelentes vistas sobre el Paseo de la Reforma- y una ubicación muy apropiada para acceder al metro. Pero el vestíbulo es realmente pretencioso -falso ArtDecó-, con unas esculturas horribles. Buenos restaurantes.
Nice room, good restaurant
With the exception of the cable reception and choice of channels, my stay here (5 days in 1999) was excellent. Since I was there to work with Cablevision, I'm hoping my efforts have improved their HFC system and help them to provide better cable to the city. :0)
The staff was friendly and helpful, and the restaurant served a tasty selection of dishes.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to D.F. on business or pleasure.
This was my first stay at the Marquis Reforma hotel. I thought the service was very good to excellent.
Posh at a Perfect Price!
My daughter, who lives in Mexico City, and I spent three nights at the Hotel Marquis Reforma. My original reservation was for two nights at a rate of $139 per night, including a delicious buffet breakfast. The staff is professional and personable. The rooms are smallish, but the well stocked bathrooms are spacious. The La Jolla Restaurant (second floor) prepared an excellent dinner complete with molten-chocolate souffle cake for my daughter's birthday celebration. Our meal ended with complimentary glasses of champagne. We liked the hotel so much, we stayed an extra night at the same great rate. The only annoyance was the price of bottled water in the room--630 pesos per liter--roughly $6.30 American!
Without class or personality
I had the misfortune of staying here for four nights recently. Upon my arrival, the desk clerk informed me that they lost my resevration. Even when I gave them the number, they said it was not in the system. They sent me across the street to the Four Seasons, a superior hotel in every possible way, for the first night. I checked back in on the second day, to my everlasting regret. When I got home and opened my bill, they had charged me a no-show for the first night! What a bunch of crooks! The hotel rooms are quite cramped, especially around the foot of the bed. The bathroom is nice, though. They do provide you with an English language Miami Herald each morning. The location is covenient, but the service is rude and uncaring.
Top of the class!
This property is located in the heart of the financial dsitrict in Mexico City. This is an art deco gem! I travel to Mexico in a monthly basis and I have stayed at the Marquis the last 6 years. The rooms are exceptional, marbel floors, great food,great beds, valet parking (cost 10.00 pesos = 1.00 usd if you are guest). Service staff is very profesional and friendly. If you have been in Mexico before, you learn to value safety and security, this property does a very good job in this area. I left my Ipaq organizer (value $600 usd) on top of my rental car one evening and the response that I have from everybody was beyond my expectations. I'll keep coming back to this property month afer month. Fernando Morales. Houston, Texas.
