Good For Business
For business travel, and HIGH budgets!
This hotel is usually preferred by businessmen traveling to Mexico City and also by high-profile artists (singers, bands) staying in town. The main reason besides its convenient location is...... its high rates!! It is a luxury hotel with a lot of amenities but the rooms there are quite expensive compared to the average rates in town, even at other high quality hotels. However, I've heard that the Hotel W has even higher rates: I don't know if this is true at all times and for all kind of rooms but checking on Expedia.com I found out that they DO have higher rates now, and the Four Seasons' and the Marriott's are even HIGHER! So apparently the rates at the Nikko aren't as outrageous as I always thought...
Just for you to have an idea of what the prices are like at the NIKKO, the cheapest room available for 1-2 people (October 2006) is USD $170 per night, but it is an Off Season Promotion Exclusive Rate for a 2 Twin Superior Room..... this same room costs USD $300 on a regular rate!!! They also have Jr. Suites @ USD $450 and up (USD $650 per night the most expensive suite).
I've been to the Nikko a couple of times (didn't sleep there, of course, I just visited the bar) and it is a nice place, so if you have the money to afford it, go for it!
Unique Quality: The bar is pretty cool, quite spacious and they play good music.... it's a good place to relax after a busy day. Prices are quite high too, of course.
However, they serve a buffet breakfast at their main restaurant on Sunday morning (perhaps on Saturday too, not sure) which costs USD $15 per person and has a wide variety of dishes.... the food is pretty good and the service too, and the price isn't too outrageous so you may as well try having breakfast here (at least) some time.
Five stars at corporate (or internet) rates
The Nikko is a good hotel for business travellers. There is in-room broadband Internet access, the function rooms are well-equipped, and not least, it's located in the Polanco neighborhood where there is a great choice of good food within walking distance or a short cab ride.
The rooms overlook the Chapultepec Park and the landmark Reforma avenue with it's boutiques.
Unique Quality: I liked the heated rectangular area in the bathroom mirror that prevented it from getting steamed up!
Never stayed there but....
A friend of mine swears by this place and another friend said the rooms are slightly small but it's adequate.
Unique Quality: The hotel overlooks Chapultepec Park.. it's in a gringo-friendly part of Mexico City as well.
Directions: Campos Eliseos 204
Located in the Polanco district, it's close to attactions like Chapultepec Park, Paseo de la Reforma, Museo de la Antropologia and there's lots of shopping close by.
Japanese Theme Hotel
The hotel Nikko is a Japanese theme hotel in the heart of Mexico city. This is a pretty large and luxurious hotel so those looking for a nice place to stay won't be disappointed. The staff speaks English so for the non Spanish speakers this is the place to be. The hotel is also within walking distance to the Metro as well as shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Situated in the middle of the embassy district of Mexico City, this is one of the nicer areas to be in.
