Mexico City Hotel? Trinidadian Fashion?

First, a follow on to this AskMe...I never heard from anyone about a hotel - hoping someone can chime in: I have to stay in Mexico City one night when I first arrive. Any lodging recommendation that is cheap, safe, and close to the airport (MEX)?

Second - My friend is travelling to Trinidad and is wondering if a US-style ballcap with a shimmery Dios De La Muertos sugar skull embroidery would somehow be culturally insensitive. Thoughts?

Trinidad isn't really hispanic or catholic in any form or fashion so I'd say no.

Haven't stayed there myself, but these have ok ratings:

- Hotel Aeropuerto (reviews)

- Mini Suites Aeropuerto

- Ramada Aeropuerto México. A bit more expensive than the other two, has a free shuttle from the airport (you'd have to take a cab to the other two hotels).

Also: don't believe it when an hotel says it's close to the airport and only 15 minutes to Downtown/Centro Histórico. This is only true after 11 pm or before 7 am.
