I was here for three nights at a meeting in the hotel (and did a small amount of sightseeing.
The hotel appears to be a well-managed Hyatt that does a chunk of meeting/wedding/convention/etc. business. Checkin was straightforward. I mentioned I was sharing a room with a colleague and reception offered to setup the bill as a split when I first checked in (rather than having to take longer to do that when we checked out). Sunken lobby and bar is a great place to meet people but the center of the lobby is a large table with outlets (obviously for people with devices). Also one of these in the bar. In some respects, a very convenient addition, but not terribly aesthetic as the lobby centerpiece. Meeting rooms are good sized and A/V that was hired by the conference (PSAV) provided good service. My only complaint about the meeting rooms is that they're distributed in a rather odd fashion and the ones in the very back of the hotel are only ADA accessible through the service hallways. Odd arrangement.
The room was good, decent size...no complaints with housekeeping (in fact, housekeeping was a little too eager to get into the room in the morning...so I guess my only complaint). Beds were OK but box springs were surprisingly noisy. We were in room 509 (which faced north towards the central plaza...rather sterile view but OK). Third-floor outdoor pool and jacuzzi were very pleasant.
The restaurant and bar are both waaaay more expensive than they need to be given it's in Albuquerque. Cafe Lush (3 blocks away on Tijeras and 7th) does a really good breakfast and there's any number of lunch/dinner places downtown. I disagree with previous poster and using a cab/car to get to Old Town...the Rapid Ride bus works great and is only $1. Also, there is a downtown circulator bus in case you don't want to walk. The main downtown transit (which many of the buses go and where one catches the RailRunner to Santa Fe is about 4 blocks from the hotel.
Now having said that, if you really want to see what ABQ has to offer, you do need a car.
