Marquis Reforma Hotel
Travel Blogs from Mexico City
We get back in time to catch the opening match of the World Cup - Brasil vs Croatia. We are lucky enough to get bar seats at one of our favourite restaurants here - El Cuatro20. I grab a burger with fries (gringo food) and Hinesh grabs 4 tacos. We watch the match and the flurry of activity that is happening behind the counter. The ladies are yelling orders and cooking then all is good again and they are smiling and look to be joking around. They are nice enough to keep ...
... selection, apple, strawberry, natural and oatmeal (was so weird it tasted like fermented cereal...haha). It was a strange but definitely memorable experience, one that kind of felt like eating alcoholic baby food. With several drinks under our belt we caught a cab back into town. We found a very local Cantina exploding with traditional music and loads of people dancing. The atmosphere was nothing short of electric. Leo paused at the door and gave us a look of "hey ...

We walked along a long line of buses at the terminal looking for anything with pyramids on the front but couldn't see any.

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.
Great Mexico City Hotel
This was my first stay at the Marquis Reforma hotel. I thought the service was very good to excellent.
My visit started when I pulled into the under-hotel parking garage. I was greeted quickly and on my way to the front desk.
My reservation was in order with the correct rate and the type of room I requested. Check-in was reasonably fast, but I still had to fill out my personal information.
A bellman showed me to my room. On the way, he carefully pointed out the bar and restaurants. When we got to my room, 829, I was impressed that the first thing he showed me was where the emergency exit was!
I had a twin-bedded room. Even though there was only me, I often use the other bed to lay out paper-work on. The room was average size and well decorated and furnished. The bed was firm, but very comfortable. The bathroom was excellent with a combination tub/shower and well lighted vanity area. There was a complete selection of the things you might need. Towels were thick and plentiful.
My only disappointment with the hotel was that on my second night, the high-speed internet quit working. I called the front desk and a few minutes one of their system people came to my room. After about a half hour of work, he said the network was experiencing problems and that I would likely not be able to connect that night at all. When the system did work, the first night, it worked well, but the charge $20.00 U.S. was the highest I have ever been charged for broadband service.
I had both dinner and breakfast in the more casual of the hotel's restaurants. The food was excellent and the service very good. Dinner, including two glasses of wine, soup, entree, desert, and tip was less than $40.00. The complete American breakfast was about $15.00 with tip.
I called the front desk several times during my stay and was greeted by name and in English each time, which was good because I speak no Spanish.
There is no video check-out, but checking out at the front desk only took a few minutes. After I had checked-out and left, I realized that I had to use the restroom. I circled back to the hotel and was happy that the bellman watched my car (without parking it) while I used the facilities.
All-in-all, I thought the Marquis Reforma was an excellent hotel. I agree with the 4-star rating plaques displayed behind the reception desk. Considering the room cost $135.00 (one of my company's preferred properties), I thought it an excellent value!
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.
A Decadent, Elegant Weekend
Anyone looking for pampered elegance, comfort, and style would be hard-pressed to do better than the world-class Hotel Marquis Reforma.
With it's outstanding location within walking distance of Chapultepec and the boutiques and upscale restaurants of Polanco, it would be tough to find a better place to hang your hat.
The rooms are spacious, modern and very tastefully decorated in modern scandinavian design styles. Service is absolutely impeccable!
Amazingly enough, this top hotel can be affordable too! I snagged a weekend rate through their web site for just $110! I couldn't believe it! This is a hotel of the caliber that you'd pay easily $400 on up for in any U.S. city, and you can get all the luxury and decadence that implies at an affordable rate. If you're thinking about an upscale weekend in the world's largest city, look no further than the Hotel Marquis Reforma. It's a winner!
