handicapped viewing area (hotel) for ballon festival

My partner is handicapped & unable to stand for lengths of time. Are there any hotels near the balloon festival area that have upper level rooms with balconies that would allow us to view the festival?

Appreciate any advice - thanks !

There are a few motels/hotels that are near the Fiesta, but I'm not sure if any have views. Sandia Casino Hotel will have nice, but distant views. The best place to be is on the field. There are handicapped parking areas (bring your hangtag from home) and you can bring in foldable chairs. Last time I was there I remember seating areas. There also are scooter and wheelchair rentals available as well as free shuttles within the park.

Also for a higher ticket price you can have reserved special seating.
