... this happened over the period of 3 weeks max? I was amazed at the obvious delight and appreciation for what he was learning as well as his trust on Jehovah to help him make changes in his life. He doesn't seem to have much in his life since he didn't mention a family and he almost lives on the streets, but he found the pearl of the highest value! How beautiful it is to meet another of the "desirable things" that Jehovah is rocking out of the nations ...

After a long day of travelling to Taxco and back, today was our first chance to really just relax and catch up with ourselves, send some emails, go to the gym and do washing after a long sleep in. We went to visit the National Palace however finding it is closed on a Monday. Then visited Reno, and ended up waiting in his shop for a while as he was very busy before making a fast paced trip north of Mexico City to meet his friend selling a blue 1950 Mercury ...

The following day at breakfast Silke and I met Karin (Holland) and the three of us went off to the most incredible museum I have ever been to.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Maria Isabel Hotel and Towers Mexico City
Some people get a little carried away with reviews here and there and end up scaring those of us relying on them for sound advice.
Good place in Mexico City
Stayed there for 3 nights at the end of November while visiting Mexico city. The location is very good (central but not in the center) and so is the standard of the rooms. The service level was very good. We booked the hotel through the Sheraton website and got a good deal. I would highly recomend this hotel, and will certainly return.
I recently stayed in this hotel for three weeks on a business trip. I enjoyed the central location immensely and the room and cleaning services were in line with what I would expect for the price. However, any of their paid services are horrendously overpriced and subpar. I paid $100 for less than a weeks worth of clothing to be laundered, only to have it delivered late at night with my trousers misplaced and my business shirts folded like t-shirts instead of on hangers starched as requested. Their solution to this was of course to simply hang up the business shirts and finally recover my trousers over 24 hours later. I also chose to pay $18 for a days worth of their 'high speed broadband internet access,' which was horrible. 80 kbp's per second, barely better than dialup. I was constantly booted, the internet was practically unusable. Never having traveled to Mexico before I thought perhaps this was 'fast'. I found that 500 kbp's per second is the average for the country. I ended up paying nearly two month's worth of dial up access for little better for 24 hours. If I wanted a simple room I would have stayed at the Mexican equivalent of Motel 8.
Can't Beat the Location
Perfectly situated on the Reforma next to Sandborne's in Zona Rosa. A short walk to excellent restaurants and clubs (but take a taxi!). Good security and friendly, albeit a bit disorganized, staff. I stay here every time I'm in Mexico City.
Excellent hotel! The hotel offers comfortable accomodation and wonderful restaurants. The breakfast buffet was the best one I have ever seen. The food was very tasty. The other two restaurants also offer wonderful food. If iI ever go back to Mexico City I will definetly revisit the sheraton maria isabel.
For our first trip to Mexico, my partner and I stayed their for 2 weeks. The rooms are nice and the location is great. We were across the street from the Zona Rosa and very near the Polanco, Condesa, Roma and Cuahatemoc neighborhoods. Be prepared for being next door to the US Embassy and the attendent armed security. The hotel has a decent gym (costs $10 per day), small heated rooftop pool and WiFi ($15 per day) which can be accessed in the adjacent Starbucks. One negative is that they do not provide free bottled water. The staff is attentive, but you need to make sure that any special request has been put into your folio as small things did fall through the cracks. I made a fuss and we were comped for their mistakes. If you are nervous about Mexico City, I would recommend this hotel. Of all the hotels in the Zona Rosa, this was the right location and price ($109 on their website).
I "lived" at the Sheraton for several months, although this was in 1995 and 1996. I found the accommodations and service very comfortable and convenient to the areas which I lived, worked and "played." The service was better than I found at most locations within the city and Mexico in general. It was really a place I could call "home", while away from home. La Zona Rosa was within walking distance and good for a dinner or night out. It wasn't bad to get to the Metro and all points from there. The Pyramids could be a short ride by limousine; or it wasnt much of a chore to simply go via the less expensive Metro to the North Bus Station and then third class bus to the Pyramids. In my opinion, this was by far the better choice, if are able to navigate the countryside and not be intimidated by a different culture. The staff was not only very helpful, but willing to help. The nearby restaurants provided a change, if you didnt want to simply live at the Sheraton. While their cuisine is very good, a change of venue is good, too.
Very Good Service at Events
For many years (more than 20) we have done the events of our company (Curso Teorķa del Empresario) at the hotel. I really don“t know how is the service in the rooms, but the service at the events is excelent. All problems get a quick solution and it is not expensive. Also the location of the hotel is very convenient, specially when considering the problems of traffic in Mexico City and that most of the important offices are close to the hotel area.
I only can agree 100% what the other review is saying,
it was quite expensive but ugly. The location near by the Zona Rosa was good.
