Originally we tried to stay at the Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico but found it too expensive so settled on the Hampton Inn. It turned out to be an amazing decision.
We had a king size bedroom which was big enough to let our 1.5 year old son run around the room without seeming crowded. The bed was big enough that our son slept horizontal between us and we still had a comfortable night's sleep. It was also big enough to make a pillow fort. And the TV was on a swivel so if our son was sleeping in the bed, we could easily turn it to the couch area so that the glare would not shine onto the bed. Plus there didn't seem to be many objects around the room within his reach.
The hotel has a very big rooftop patio with high walls. During the day we were the only ones up there (everybody no doubt sightseeing) and he had a ball running around and rearranging the patio furniture cushions. There is also a children's room (consisting of a little table and chairs) but we did not use this.
There are a couple of steps to enter the hotel but there was always someone there offering to help lift the stroller. Our son spent lots of time running up and down the ramp to enter the lobby and no staff complained. We also could have rode the glass elevator continuously as our son was fascinated by the view.
The free breakfast was great - scrambled eggs, make-your-own-waffles, croissants, dry cereal, etc. Our son stuck to eggs, toast, orange juice and yogurt. The staff was extremely accommodating for a toddler at breakfast. We tried to sit at the far end as it gave our son the best view of the lobby glass elevator which seemed to memorise him during his breakfast.
Each day the room was supplied with two bottled waters which made making his bottles that much more hassle free.
The hotel is a five minute walk from Zocalo and its street is quiet (for Mexico City). We had an inner room and it was very quiet. At the corner are four pharmacies which do sell baby products. There are also a few Vips restaurants nearby that seem to be kid friendly (pancakes).
The entire staff was super nice. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
