Whether or not it matters, I am a Platinum Premiere with Marriott. Pretty much, I live on the road with Marriott. I used to stay at the ABQ Pyramid for years, but after a near miss with falling down a open chute due to an elevator malfunctioning (it malfunctioned nearly every time I stayed at the Pyramid,) I thought I would give this property another chance. Actually, I am very pleased. I stayed here a few years ago, and wasn't impressed, but a good change has occurred. I am here for 2 more days, just got a salad to go from the bar, and was heading back to the room when a gentleman asked if I had enough dressing or wanted real silverware. He was the GM, and what a great touch.
If you have access to the Concierge Lounge, this has one of the best. It is not an international Marriott, but is really great. Not huge, but the variety of food impressed me. The staff is also super! The rooms (at least mine) are not huge, but very comfortable, and the heating/cooling works great. If I had only two recommendations: 1) Provide a bath mat for the shower... the tub floor is getting a bit worn and the slope is precarious and can easily cause a slip; 2) Make your grilled cheese sandwiched bigger... for about $10.00, I ordered one last night and it was advertized as a grilled cheese on Texas toast. It was more like on New Hampshire toast. It was the tiniest thing I have ever seen (bite-sized:) Tasted great, but a little chincy for the price.
In sum, this place has taken a turn for the better. Great staff, clean rooms, and it will be my place to stay from here on out when visiting ABQ.
Just be nice to the Front Desk staff.
