The Riu Plaza Hotel was chosen as the site for an engineering convenrion I attended for 5 days. I was lucky to have a good room with a view of the city and the mountains 1-2 floors below the penthouse. The staff was friendly, flexible, and polite. The property has great places to eat with a lively, vibrant bar scene. Its location fits perfectly in the heart of the financial district. One more thing to consider is that if a hotel is the site of a convention, expect longer waiting times for the elevators during the day and early evenings.

"Relaxing resort atmosphere in urban surroundings"
The staff, from check in to check out was just wonderful. We had an upper level cabana (pool side) room with a balcony. It was spacious. Only issue is that there is no sitting furniture, i.e. couch, chair other than a single desk chair, even though there was ample room. There was a small table and two chairs on balcony. The pool is beautiful and the pool staff very polite and attentive. Wide variety of television channels including some English language ones. The tourist taxis that are headquartered there were very useful and reasonably priced. Actual neighborhood is a little seedy, but only a few blocks from nicer area. Traffic (not the hotel's fault) in the general vicinity is UNBEARABLE, but noise was effectively kept out. Gym was reasonably well stocked with machines, weights, etc. NOTE: We were there off-season. I cannot say how the staff functions when the resort is at full or high capacity.
Hotel staff is excellent and well prepared. You have a great bar at the lobby with nice atmosphere, food and drinks. Ideal to chill out after a working day. This week they also have Djs playing music, so was really enjoyable.
