“Great downtown hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2010

We stayed here for more than a week as our son was getting married in Albuquerque. We took a premier room which was very clean and comfortable with separate bed and lounge areas. A sign of a good hotel is nice pillows, certainly the case here. The bathroom was a delight. The lobby area of the hotel is very attractive and several friends/relatives came back for coffee and also liked the place a lot. The hotel is an ex-Hilton and very solidly built, the room being very quiet despite being next to a lift. It is a couple of blocks from the rail station (we got the train to Santa Fe) and within ten minutes walk of some excellent restaurants and cafes on Central (Artichoke and Standard Diner restaurants and Grove Cafe being particularly notable). The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we experienced no problems with the downtown location -- rather the opposite. The only negative for us was no tea/coffee maker in the room.

After reading other reviews here, I was a little afraid with the noise of the bar keeping me awake. On check in, front desk recognized i would be staying over the weekend and moved me to a room facing the other side of the building. This involved an upgrade which meant I stayed in a spectacular room for a very reasonable price. Meals in the restaurant were great, particularly the Rockefeller risotto, a delicious twist on oyster, risotto, and half-shells. My only gripe is the bar; Ibiza is a little expensive, although, most of Albuquerque's beautiful people (some very beautiful) are out in force.

Of the 13 hotels in which I stayed on a 3 week road trip the Andaluz was by far the best. The bulding has been tastefully renovated, my room excellently designed. The hotel offers character, efficiency, helpfulness and value. The restaurant food and service were equally good. Well located downtown this hotel is hard to beat. Great value for £114 per night.

Perfect stay. Beautiful room, excellent Frette linens, great bath products. Be prepared to negotiate on the price or just ask about the special deals. I was given a great deal and an upgrade when I arrived. The restaurant, Lucia, is very nice, too, lovely food and servers. The only place to stay in Albuquerque.

The hotel was exquisitely appointed. The staff was extremely accomodating. The queen rooms are a little small, but the decor makes up for the size. The bed was really comfortable. The spacious lobby made meeting with workgroup members very pleasant.

Quirky uniqueness that you can't find at a standard chain hotel. The lobby is comfortable and inviting. The rooms are well appointed, including large flat panel tv's. The only real area for improvement would be that the hotel doesn't seem to have enough staff on hand to handle the guest needs.

What a gracious and welcoming experience! This evening I mingled between the roof top night night club and the lobby salsa dancing with my late teen and adult children. Off to bed and a heavenly elegant experience. <@Christopher_W_Smith - sound wasn't a problem for us. We were on floor 3 and floor 6>

Thank you Andaluz staff for making me feel special. I am already planning my return.
