Granted we left about PM but it had none of the negative things we read about. And it was kind of fun to watch a saleswoman describing merchandise to a couple that wasn't fully comfortable with being in public making their purchase, but it seemed as tastefully done as could be. Highly doubtful that you didn't see "but one" hooker. They must just be doing a "great job at retailing" as you say.
The OPs observations of the Zona Rosa match my own. People unfamiliar with Mexico City and that part of the city, which is hugely popular with local residents, don't track with reality, IMO. Our staff may also remove posts that do not follow our posting guidelines, and we reserve the right to remove any post for any reason. Thanks for being a part of the TripAdvisor travel community! I had to walk through the Zona Rosa , at least twice a day, a few years back.
No hookers that I noticed. Of course it's hugely popular with locals, it's the home of fast-food chains and cheesy pleasures. Anyone "familiar" with Mexico City , including any Chilango, fully understands what goes on there, and most choose to either ignore it or be a part of it especially after their wives and children have gone to bed after having gone there for their Burger King in the afternoon. Viva la Zona Rosa I guess.
At the end it is a matter of tastes; I personally find Zona Rosa , as someone else said, trashy and tacky, but for others it might be OK. Each to his own, It's definitely not an area to avoid, but to me it is a place with no appeal.
I still go there from time to time to have lunch with a friend who works in the area, but I wouldn't go for a drink at night. I don't understand the comments about fast food. Zona Rosa has them, sure, but they also have many places that cater to office workers in the area where you can get home-made style with different courses what we call 'comida corrida'.
