With President Barack Obama prioritizing issues like the the drug war, trade and immigration with Mexico, he is spreading some good karmic vibration to the hotel industry. In honor of President Obama's stay in Mexico's capital city, a stylish 1931 Art Deco designed boutique hotel called the Hippodrome in the hipster neighborhood of Condesa is offering $20 a night rate in Room 104 of the 15-room hotel. And the price includes taxes and fees.

The recession-friendly rate lasts through the end of the year and is only for Room 103. Get it? The deal applies for a two-day maximum stay. Right now, it's booked solid through the summer but the other 14 rooms start at $150 a night.

We say what a great way to enjoy part of our stimulus checks. Just don't blow the rest by continuing to support drug trade relations between the U.S. and Mexico!
