... Right next door to the cemetery was a market and a set up like a mini royal show, you can't have a celebration without rides and fairy floss! After a bit of fun at the 'show' (we had to go on at least one ride!) we headed back the the hotel where the gecko's group had organised a birthday cake with a skull on top and everything! I felt very spoilt and it was a nice way to end the day. Today we visited another archaeological ...
... experience from the Metro Public Witnessing:
A man that lives at a shelter and works picking up and selling cardboard from night clubs stopped by the stands to have a look at the information. He was very attentive and interested and accepted to start a study right then and there with a brother. The next day he showed up to study again. I saw him last week and he was telling me full of excitement that besides studying at the carts the ...
... did all the rides we wanted to do (Batman, Boomerang (best!), Superman, Joker and Tower of Tower (equivalent, can't remember the name) and quickly legged it to get back in time for the wrestling.
Lucha Libre is pretty much the Mexican equivalent of WWF. It's super over the top but quite entertaining to watch. I was amazed how much the crowd gets into it, booing and cheering in turn. The masks are kinda cool and both Steph and I were really tempted to ...

We had done plenty of walking around towns and hiking up mountains at altitudes far higher than ...

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.
