Four Seasons??from A TripAdvisor Member
Like all hotels the mini-bar and room service were overpriced. The restaurants in the hotel were lacking in quality of food and service. If dining inside the hotel I would recommend room service, at least it is convenient.
The concierge was helpful, although there seemed to be some miscommunication about Chapultepec Park being open or closed. Laura was especially helpful in booking some tours, airport transportation, and a car for shopping.
The hotel is located within walking distance of the zoo (avoid, malodorous cesspool), National Museum of Anthropology (worth 38 pesos for admission), and Chapultepec Park (which was mostly closed for cleanup, it looked like it needed it badly).
I highly recommend using the car service from the hotel. Yes, it is a little more expensive, but it is well worth the extra money for the sense of safety. I used an authorized taxi only once, the taxi drivers drive with absolutely no regard for your safety.
The health club was small; however, I used it twice daily and I was alone each time. Upon arrival a towel, bottled water, and headphones for the individual televisions at each piece of equipment were provided. It was difficult to hear my iPod over the loud intercom music; however, the staff did reduce the volume at my request each time I asked. The pool and surrounding area are small and the hotel's website picture exaggerates its size and attractiveness considerably. If you want a hotel with a nice pool, stay elsewhere as you will be seriously disappointed.
The room was spacious, although the decor was not overly impressive. The reception on some of the cable channels was poor and no MSNBC (only Fox News and CNN). The maid service was very efficient and inconspicuous. The check-out process was satisfactory. The hotel employee seemed annoyed that I was reviewing the list of charges. I had charged nearly everything to my room: transportation, tours, meals, drinks, business center expenses, etc and wanted to ensure its accuracy as hotels are notorious for billing errors.
I would recommend this hotel for business travel, but certainly not for a personal vacation (although Mexico City is a poor choice for a personal vacation). Overall, this hotel was moderately below the standards one would expect from a Four Seasons Hotel. It is very nice, but not up to Four Seasons' standards.
Excellent Service-watch for extra chargesfrom larkoolaw
The gym is really nice and the staff is very helpful.
Only issues I have would be: cable tv -numeorus channels did not work the whole time I was there. The hotel car service is too pricey. We asked for a taxi and got a nice a/c car. Used it twice but the next day decided to hail a cab-glad I did- the same ride the night before one way cost me 19$ with the hotel car and with the taxi cost me 4 dollars! Yes, you have to be careful but really I felt fine with the taxis and except for one guy who tried to charge 4$ extra all the taxis drivers were very nice and safe.
The hotel restaurants are expensive but it is a Four Seasons and also it is really nice in the courtyard. The concierge is helpful and good for restaurant recommendations. Had an amazing meal at Aguila y Sol.

Extremly Elegantfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel itself is very understated, though elegant. Rooms were suprisingly bare-ish, with ample wall space that could have used some art. Of the two rooms we had, the superior (though larger) was actually more sparsely furnished. The superior bathroom was fantastic - huge and with great L'Occitaine toiletries.
Pool and fitness center are outstanding. The pool isn't Olympic size, but it doesn't need to be. There are very few people at this hotel on the weekends.
The only disappointing aspect of our stay was the food at dinner in the main restaurant - it was pretty poorly executed. As others have noted, breakfast is great, as are drinks/apps in El Bar. But every dish at dinner was weak - from scallops that didn't taste to fish with a too heavy saffron sauce to a wine list that is ridiculously expensive (even by fancy US restaurant standards).
All in all - great place to stay - and since all rooms look into the courtyard (which is beautiful) you're gauranteed a great view.

Get the concierge to organise a personal driver to show you the sites of the city - it's safe and relatively inexpensive.

Top Local Tips for Mexico City
take a take ON the hotel, ask the front desk to call you one, not on the street! For your safety, ask the front desk to call you a cab, and use only cabs that are part of "a sitio" that´s how they call it in spanish. So far, it´s my best tip for the city and your safety!!
Metro is safe Cost 2 pesos per person and is clean and safe.Use it. Safer than taxis.
Vegetarian in Mexico City?? here is what i have to say: you can do it! best places: Yug on Vakovia has great vegetarian versions of mexican classics so you see what the fuss is about; Aguila y Sol made me a wonderful mixed plate at their own suggestion and has AMAZING desserts; Flor de Lis which has DELICIOUS vegetarian tamales; Lamm Cafe has yummy breakfast; Hola Taqueria in Condesa was closed but i hear great things; Ixote is supposed to be good for vegetarians, but it was closed; Cafe de Tecuba & Sanborns also have vegetarian breakfast options. The Moon book and the Opinionated Guide both list additional vegetarian options. AVOID: Solera in the W hotel; Pujol: bad bad vegetarian service.
