We were in Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta. This property is located a reasonable distance away and right near 2nd Street which you can ride straight down to get to the Fiesta without getting on the highway which is jammed on Fiesta mornings. The downside of the location is that Central Avenue is a bit seedy with "gentlemans clubs" and biker bars galore. Everything else was out of business. We tried to walk to a decent restaurant for lunch and couldn't find anything but pizza. Forque, the lobby restaurant, was already closed. So be ready to drive to anything you want to see or do or eat.
The room was fine, beds good. There was no safe in the room, unheard of in this day and age. Also unacceptable is charging for internet. At a Hyatt Regency this should be included. Bottled water for $5? Are you kidding?
We had breakfast in the restaurant, Forque, and it was acceptable. Service was good and the food was hot. We did not eat from the buffet as there were alot of people in the room which tends to make me stay away, but the menu was plenty and we got decent value for the price.
Part of the focus seems to be the many shops in the lobby. A little more attention to guest value would be appreciated. I understand from staff that this property was recently purchased and will be upgraded. Some amenities would be useful.
We're going back to the Balloon Fiesta next year but will try another hotel. This wasn't worth the money I spent.
