This hotel used to be the Hotel Jena. I have stayed here 4 times, including 2 nights of our honeymoon (junior suite was a huge room with a Jacuzzi). The lobby and the pool are modern. The rest of the hotel will make you feel like you are in the 60's. We got in after 2 in the morning and the staff said there would be absolutely no problem with our late arrival. The breakfast buffet was not included in our price, but we gladly paid for it and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Mexico City is a unique mix of experiences and staying at the Marlowe provided a wonderful base to experience them. The location is terrific, staff was accommodating, love the buffet breakfast and we appreciated chillin' in the steam room. And there is a wide range of restaurants within walking distance - recommend Ginos (Mexican Italian mix) and Cocina de Mexico (think California style Mexican). The place was always clean and coming in from the street, there was a pleasant scent to let you know you were "home".
All staff are kind and helpful. Located in at the old Mexico City. Close to a Metro station, easy to go other area.
The atmosphere, in side the hotel including the room, appears to maintain traditional Buildings of Mexico; .I like it.
At night, when any festival is held, it is rather noisy; although you can see it at the restraunt at top floor. .
"Very nice hotel-close to sightseeing and shopping"
The staff at the hotel was great-pleasant,helpful and caring-the Customer Care agents were friendly and went out of their way to ensure you were comfortable.They followed up on our tour bookings and also liaised with the airline about a piece of luggage that did not arrive in Mexico with us.
The facilities were good - the beds were comfortable-complimentary bottled water was always available.
The view from the rooftop restaurant was fabulous and the food was good
The hotel and the room were nice, and the breakfast was very good. However, the hotel was very noisy. rooms are not isolated so you can hear what's happening in your neighbor's room, and the noise of the street is terrible. Every morning I woke up at 6am because of the cars, the klaxons, etc...

One of these buildings is the Palacio Nacional, where murals by Diego Rivera are on display. Nearby is the excavation site of Templo Mayor, believed by the ancient Aztecs to be the center of the universe.
