I managed to sleep 8 hours, occasionally awakened by Sophia kicking me as she lay between Suzan and me on the king-size bed (the Sheraton did not have a baby bed available). While Suzan and Sophia continued to sleep I wrote in my journal as the day dawned clear outside. At 8 am I stepped outside to do a short run on the quiet streets around Parque …
I hadn't even gotten over the jetlag from my trip to Yemen but we were heading out of the country again, this time for Mexico. In trying to determine where we could go after Christmas I considered the various travel possibilities based on United seat availability, flight time, Starwood hotel availability, and activities which Sophia would enjoy; …
... along less interesting streets, past lots of trash and a few happy drunks emerging from various dives. It was still crowded but certainly less so than in the main square. We walked and walked until we reached Tlatelolco Plaza. Emily gave us a brief history of the 1968 massacre that happened here, which is memorialized by a plaque on the square.
We walked through the temple ruins, which were free to visit (at least today). We were the only ones viewing, and I have to say ...
... still closed and the street cleaners were still finishing the final removal of the previous day's rubbish. It must be a city that gets up late and closes late. Wonder how late on a Saturday night?

... headed to the pyramid. It was gorgeous & daunting. I walked up one flight of stairs and thought I don't think I will go to the top. But then an older lady in my group with a sore hip, half crawled up and I thought if she is going to do it so am I. I was huffing and puffing and sweating like no tomorrow. I had to stop every 4 steps to catch my breath. But I made it & the view was Amazing... When I was at the top taking photos I was approached by the only other Caucasian ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Centro Historico Mexico City
Great time at Sheraton Centro Historico
First time traveller to Mexico City and enjoyed my stay at Sheraton Centro Historico. I stayed on the Sheraton Preferred Guest floor and the room was quite large with a huge bathroom. View from 24th floor was exceptional. The room was very clean and well kept.
The Los Dones restaurant had a nice breakfast buffet and also enjoyed the wine bar. The location was great as we could walk to the historical sites and to the Palacio de Bellas Artes. The concierge did a very nice job in recommending restaurants and getting tickets for Ballet Folklorico (which was great). Concierge also provided a top notch guide for tour of Historic district. Very pleased with my stay.
This is the best hotel I've stayed at in quite awhile. And by far the best bargain.
pleasantly suprised. the hotel is in a great location walking distance to the historical locations and to the art center. it's almost across the street.
the lobby is great looking and new. the service great. the rooms were fabulous with new bathrooms updated furniture. large rooms and fab views of the city. the hallways and elevators were impressive with fab furniture and tasteful. i would recommend this hotel. we got a good rate of $150 a night on the weekend. i would say it's worth it. you could be impressed. it's quite contemp and elegant.
We stayed here for 3 days. It is very close to the Central Plaza and Palace of Fine Arts, which is great, and very safe. My boyfriend and I were walking around at midnight, but unfortunately, most of the city is closed at this time. We ended up just sitting in front of the Palace of Fine Arts. The hotel had a great gourmet Mexican restaurant, El Cardinale, with great prices. We noticed that a lot of local businessmen were eating there. The breakfast buffet also looked great, but we ordered a la carte. The great thing about Mexico City is that an average American can go and enjoy fine dining and theater shows for great prices, unlike in the States. We saw a show with center orchestra seats for $70 for two! At the Kennedy Center, it would costs $400 to see the opera with those seats. I would definitely go to this hotel again, which is close to everything. It has huge rooms with beautiful decor.
I have just returned from Mexico City and this was my first stay at Sheraton centro historico. The rooms are very nice and definitely clean. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I can say without a doubt this hotel will not dissapoint anyone, there is nothing wrong with it. The only thing I found in VERY bad taste is that they charge local calls by the minute!! they charge you $.20 for each minute you are on the phone, I found that excesive and ridiculous! OHH!! but wait, they charge you as well $2.50 for each 1-800 call that you make even though they are supposed to be FREE!. I found this in very very poor taste. Evrn though the hotel is very nice I dont like when they steal from me, thats why I am not returning here. I better stay at Fiesta Americana Reforma, not as plush as this one but much more than enough for any buissness or casual travel.
Welcome to the new milenium!
Being a world traveller, who has been to 52 countries, I was pleasantly surprised with a stay at this hotel. I was attending a business conference and recieved prompt and courteous service. The staff from housekeeping to front office reception, food & beverage to the little coffee cafe was exceptionally professional as well as friendly. What more can you ask of a city center hotel in the largest city in the western hemisphere. One doesnt experience this in many city centers elsewhere. However, the truly exciting aspect of this hotel is its modern approach and safety features. The Business center is world class and in-room amenities stand out. It is truly state of the art!
My partner & I stayed for Thanksgiving 2004 at this hotel.
I stayed here recently for a large conference and was generally happy with the hotel and staff. That said, the hotel is much better than the staff. Rooms are extremely spacious and comfortable with all amenities you expect. The layout is nice and the hotel is quiet.
The best in Mexico City, great internet access.
The rooms and service are comparable to the very best in orient. Food is great. There is a mexican restaurant in its first floor, that was just recently chosen as the best in Mexico City.Also the internet access is "real" high speed. It is in walking distance from National Museum.
Just as an info for some Mexico visitors. The hotel is not finished yet - the top two floors are still under construction. So there isn't any Rooftop-Garden or Spa (as advertised). Anyway the hotel is quite nice - because it's new. The location is OK for sightseeing but you are better of in or around the Zona Rosa if you are looking for some nightlife.
The breakfast buffet isn't that splendid and quite expensive - but for $80 a night (breakfast included) not a bad deal for a 5 star hotel. I also stayed at the Gran Melia (half a mile away) which is little bit more impressive (nice open atrium) but also more expensive.
