I can recommend the Hilton Reforma. No experience with the others.

What are the price differences?
Do you have elite status?
What do you intend to see/do in Mexico City?
will you be relying on public transportation?
What is important to you in a hotel?

Between the Hilton Reforma and the Hyatt, what is the one to go for as with Diamond status for both?

To determine the requirements for status in hotel frequent guest programs and the benefits that accrue, please consult the appropriate forum and threads in the Hotels and Places to Stay forum. Many members have taken the time and effort to post that information.

Thank you,

<redacted> So as visited both I'll answer my question for reference for anyone asking the same question.....

Hilton Reforma
Pros:
Centre of CDMX - if that is where you want to be.
Cheaper Restaurant breakfast with Mexican items (if you are paying, and want to eat in the hotel).
Lounge has great views, with meeting rooms if you require them.
Gym looked good
Bigger rooms.
Newer property.

Cons:
Centre of CDMX.
Restaurant breakfast was average.
Lounge very busy in the evening with 'Happy Hour' (a Pro but), and it was beer and wine, spirits out of sight by saw shots of tequila produced.
Newer property
More expensive when I visited (Dec 17)

Hyatt Regency
Pros:
Quiet/posh/safer side of town.
More village feel for the local restaurants/bars.
Lounge has great views.
Better restaurant breakfast.
Has a better lounge if you have access - longer hours for food, drinks all afternoon until 11pm.
Has a good gym too.
Good lounge breakfast (I didn't get to the Hilton Lounge breakfast to compare)
Cheaper the weeks I visited (Dec 17)

Cons:
Quiet/posh/safer side of town.
More village feel for the local restaurants/bars. - and they are more expensive.
Smaller rooms
Restaurant breakfast is more expensive (if you are paying).
