Anyone up for a meeting?

by acemj Online Now Nov 1, 2005 at 5:11 AM

I'll be in Mexico City from November 11-15. I'm looking for advice on a cheap, safe hotel in a favorable location (would like to spend around50 or less per night) and tips about what to do.

What are the two best museums to see (art or history)?
Any great restaurants?

And, most importantly, does anyone want to meet for a drink?!

Mark

    Thanks, everyone. I decided to book a room at the seemingly popular Hotel Catedral. It's pretty cheap and seems to be in a good location. Thanks for all the replies. I'm looking forward to the visit!

    "I'm looking for advice on a cheap, safe hotel in a favorable location"

    You changed your criteria, by selecting the Catedral . . . IMO.

    Enjoy the adventure!
