There's no need to pay so much for a nice hotel room in Mexico City, unless spending excess money pleases you. You can do very well for $800 pesos or much less. There's a lot of information on hotels in Mexico City on the Lonely Planet Thorn Tree Mexico Branch forum.
Examples, Hotel Stanza, Colonia Roma Norte. $720 and up.http://www.stanzahotel.com/tarifas.php
Hotel Milán, same area. $480 and up.
Cheaper yet, but very acceptable: Hotel Embassy (same area). $300 and up.
Closer to Centro, Hotel Pal Arcos de Belén at Balderas. $450 and up.
This is a 10 minute walk to the fabulous foodie market, Mercado San Juan.
Website recently updated, not all features may work:
You can email for info.
Breakfast can be had at many o.k. or better cafes and restaurants near various hotels. For example, we enjoyed eating at the tiny, "neighborhood place feel" La Piccolina, on Calle Luis Moya at Marqués Sterling a few blocks northeast of Hotel Pal. It's across from the Hotel San Diego, also very inexpensive, but I can't comment on it as we've never stayed there.
