“Sonya the staff agent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Sonya was extremely helpful. She was timely and caring. We had some problems with not having wash cloths and fresh towels. But the rooms were very large and clean. The breakfast was great. Have to try the almond oat waffles.

Appears to be a very nice hotel from the outside but is not well maintained. The floors have not been mopped in lord nows how long, my daughter knelt onto the ground and when she stood up she had a layer of black dirt on her knees, the printer in the business center was not working and the was no sign alerting anyone under it was out of order, shower knobs in the bathroom didn't work, curtains were filthy. Over all not a clean place at all. I was very disappointed and wouldn't recommend anyone to stay here.

We enjoyed the fact that all of our wedding guests were able to stay in the same Plaza and enjoyed the different type of layout of the hotel. It was nice having a courtyard near the bar to sit and visit, although the acoustics aren't great. The rooms are an excellent size, not confining and very comfortable. I did have one guest whose room needed a lot of attention, everything was broken! The entire hotel could use some updating and the room was a bit musty at first, but for the group rate we received, it was acceptable. I don't know that it's worth the elevated price they charge regularly, but we truly enjoyed the layout for our purpose. THE STAFF WAS TREMENDOUS!! ... very friendly and attentive. The rooms were clean, although outdated. We also appreciated the underground parking, although don't know where they park people if they have a large event there. For the most part we enjoyed our stay!

I thought the room was very clean, I had everything I needed and everything was up to par. The price was great, staff was friendly, breakfast was also good. I'd definitely stay here again when I'm in Albuquerque.

We arrived at this hotel and looking from the outside was disappointing........like going back to the 60's. Inside the Reception was dark and dingy but the staff were helpful. A maid had to help us with heavy bags as the lift only went so far then we had to carry down stairs and along corridor to our room. The room was awful, smelt of smoke, in desperate need of updating, grimy and dingy, not welcoming at all. We then had to change rooms as we had asked for a double room and this was a twin. Once again they sent the maid to help us move rooms with our baggage. The next room was just as grimy and dingy. The bed sheets were grey and torn but seemed clean. Furniture old and worn. There was a maid service everyday and room was cleaned well and towels changed regularly although we went out and brought our own.

After three days, the air conditioning started leaking water all over the floor and had to strategically place receptacles around the floor until maintenance tried to fix it. They tried twice more before my partner fixed it himself. Maintenance men did try but failed.

Room had a mini kitchen and fridge leaked and microwave smelt of old food.

Breakfast was included but don't bother - we ate out. Positioned in large bar area, minimal choice and mouldy black bananas on breakfast bar. Sticky floor and full of local residents staying there that looked like the official homeless shelter..

Chose the hotel because it had an outside pool with loungers - when we checked, pool looked like it had been empty for years with half filled brown water and a pile of rusty loungers on the side and overlooked by Burger KIng. Inside pool was nice but too hot to stay indoors.

All the staff were pleasant, hotel in great need of updating and redecoration - best part of hotel was the secure underground parking for the car.

Room Tip: Rooms on the outside of the building are quieter than those inside.

Every time I drive by this place, I cringe. I think of the stench from lingering cigarette smoke on top of their funky spicey hotel smell. While staying there, I briefly set down a bag of my belongings outside my door to maneuver the door. I turned around for just a moment and found a residentwho looked like a homeless person poking through my bag while smoking a cigarette.

Room Tip: no, not really.

For those who are attending activities at the EXPO, this hotel is really convenient. My family has been attending horse shows at the EXPO for the last year and is easy access to feed horses early and return to have coffee and made to order breakfast. There are two things you need to check before coming here. First is to make sure that the hotel has turned on the AC for the cooling season. They have a start and end date that may make your stay uncomfortablely hot. The second is to make sure you are aware of any large party events that may be happening during your stay. If there is a party event planned, make sure you ask for one of the "outside rooms" away from the atrium. There are rooms in these outer areas where any noise from the social event will be negligible.

Room Tip: Ask for a room far from the center atrium area. It will help you sleep better.

Hello! We thank you for taking the time to review the Barcelona Suites after your stay with us, we appreciate the comments. We do apologize that the event in the atrium caused an inconvenience to you. We do try to accommodate our guests when we do have events and place them in the rooms away from the atrium to ensure that they can rest well if the event goes on later in the evening. I will ensure to train the staff on this matter. Thanks!
