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.
