The charm of this very clean southwestern hotel is apparent in it's artistic décor. It was very clean, conveniently located off the freeway and the room was very nice. I travel a lot for business and I see a lot of hotels. I always stay at this hotel when I travel to Albuquerque because it has a restaurant and lounge... More

Love this location within easy walk to Old Town. This was my 3rd time staying here, the last time while hosting a national meeting at the hotel. Free cooked breakfast is nice, but order from the special menu if you want it for free. Staff at hotel and restaurant are welcoming, helpful and considerate. Bed was VERY comfy with nice... More

I had booked a room here in January 2014, for a stay in October 2014. Arriving at the BW at 9 pm (that's not that late!) I was very very surprised that they told me they had no room. They were overbooked. I'm a platinum member, loyal BW customer and booked so much in advance so I really could not... More

Our room was very clean and check in was quick and easy. The noise level was below normal as well. The location of the hotel was easy to get to from I25 and the grounds were also clean and secure. Overall we had not issues and enjoyed our stay.

Krishna was an absolute delight! She took care of my needs and made the extra effort to make my evening memorable. She was not only friendly and attentive to her duties , but she also recommended places and things to do which made my trip to Albuquerque not only pleasurable but also memorable .

I enjoyed my 3 night stay. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The food from the restaurant was good - though, I feel the food should have been free to the guests. The staff treated us like family and were very courteous. I would stay there again.

Krisanna really is a gem at this hotel for the resturante and also the lounge she was very helpful The hotel front desk goes out of there way for you The rooms are nice The only thing I feel the shuttle should run later to pick up and drop off guests to and from the hotel

We stayed here our first two nights before heading on to Santa Fe & Taos. Would highly recommend this hotel for the price, the amenities (small frig. microwave & coffee maker in each room) and the location. It was easy to walk to Old Town for delicious New Mexican food, museums and live music in the plaza. The breakfast coupon... More

We stayed here during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 2014. Great location, almost in geometric center of town. Short drive to Old Town, Museums, Shopping, and the shuttle ride to the AIBF. Excellent Staff and good food in the restaraunt, Only critique: bed's a little too firm for us. Otherwise, nice place to stay when visiting Albuquerque.
