1In many years of travel in Mexico, I don't think I've had a hotel clerk deny me access to a room (without charging me more) but a couple of times. The larger, more expensive hotels are probably the ones which would charge you or make you wait. Also, any smaller, even inexpensive hotel which was fully-booked for the previous night may make you wait. If you do have to wait, for whatever reason ... and I have had to wait for a room to empty ... my experience has been that the front desk or manager will secure my luggage until the room is ready and I return from having something to eat or wandering about. B&Bs aren't much a part of the travel scene in Mexico City. Do you have someplace in mind, or a hotel you've thought about staying at?

2Thank you so much, LW, for responding.
Years ago, before internet, we used to stay at Hotel Gillow near the Zocalo. Now, we enjoy B&B's because of the interaction with hosts and with other visitors. There will be four people, my husband and I, and two women friends. We'll probably visit Teotihuacan and some museums, maybe Coyoacan. We've never stayed in the Condessa area, which sounds nice.

4I always will remember the staff at The Quinta Real upon our arrival early morning after traveling all night. We had been married the day before & were only looking to leave our luggage until our suite would be available.
The Clerk protested "you must be very tired. We have a a empty room you can sleep in until yours was ready".
We were then taken to a lovely room where we slept several hours, ordering breakfast on awakening then off to the shoe mall nearby to do my brides favorite thing.
On our return mid afternoon they had moved our luggage to suite 45 our home for the next 5 days. We were escorted by the manager to our lovely suite were flowers, fruit & wine welcomed us..
We have since returned every 5 years to #45 it always being perfect. So What the heck Ask!
