Séjour relax entre amis
Très bel hôtel à 50 mètres de la 5ème avenue. Service impeccable et personnel souriant et disponible. Chambre spacieuse et bien équipée. Seul petit bémol, une révision générale de la plomberie s’impose.
CHRISTIAN, us1 night trip with friends
Poor 2.0
BE AWARE: rooftop closed and no free parking
First off the room was decent and comfortable. What I had issue was that the rooftop that everyone raved and reviewed about was closed for construction. I wish I had known this prior to booking as I would have booked elsewhere. The street outside the hotel was closed for construction so the “free parking” was also not available. We paid for street parking $10 a day(not that big of a deal). Also their COVID response was very worrisome. Do not go to Mexico if you’re concerned with COVID. They do not take this pandemic seriously. I had construction workers trying to walk into our elevator w no mask on. Most hotel employees and construction were not wearing a mask FYI. The do not disturb sign so that our room would not be cleaned or entered upon for COVID exposure was totally ignored. Breakfast was pretty awful(Not just the room which had taped up bed sheets on the windows but also the food was beyond mediocre) so we ate outside the other days. Other than these gripes the hotel was in a good area and rooms were comfortable.

Nice people, big room, great location. Phones in the rooms where down because of the hurricanes that have gone through, so the front desk let us use their personal phone.
