I came back to spend another weekend with friends in ABQ and as promised in a prior review, I returned to the Sheraton Uptown. This time I brought my wife. We made the most of the weekend and booked the Jacuzzi suite. Room was incredible – very spacious. Views of Sandia were awesome. Room was peaceful and quiet. My eyes are drawn to the pictures they have throughout the hotel.
On the way to the fitness center, I walked by the conference room/banquet area – I peeked my head in and saw that they were setting up for a wedding – looked like a big one. Quite impressive. Room was stunning. Looked like a great place to have a wedding reception.
It’s the little things sometimes. My wife liked the Starbucks in the room. Both my wife and I just love flavored waters. They had fruit flavored water dispensers in the lobby. Very classy touch.
Lobby bar was a comfortable place to wait for the wife as she got ready… Barkeep was friendly – name slips my mind.
Front desk staff helped us out with some recommendations for places to grab a drink. I feel like I have a knack on reading people – every staff member we encountered was great. It didn’t appear to be so much as “a job” as it was something they enjoyed doing and they seemed happy to be there. Perhaps a reflection of the management.
This NM trip appears to be becoming an annual tradition. If it does, plan on seeing me again. Thank you again for making my weekend in the "Land of Enchantment" enjoyable.
