Mexico City has a good selection of hotels in all price ranges, with decor ranging from sumptuous traditionalism to aggressively modern. Most are in the Centro Historico, along Reforma, in the Zona Rosa and near Chapultepec Park in Polanco. Some business travelers choose to stay near company headquarters in the bland suburban office park area Santa Fe, which does have some excellent places to stay.
Many hotels fill up with business travelers during the week, although with new ones opening all the time there are fewer high-occupancy crunches. Availability is better on weekends, when even rooms at the Four Seasons may go on sale, but make reservations well in advance. Some hotels offer lower rates on weekends, Easter week and the last week in December because there are so few business travelers at those times. If you inquire locally by phone or in person, you may succeed in receiving a less expensive Mexican, rather than international, rate. Also check for corporate rates.
