This was a gorgeous hotel in the very sunny Albuquerque. The hotel is situated in the touristy Old Town of Albuquerque and one can easily shop for Native American & Hispanic artifacts and also go out to nice restaurants. I however, could not go out because I was there for a conference and was fully occupied.
My room was 719, which I found be absolutely beautiful & spacious. Wall decorations and furniture were all tastefully put together to represent the very sunny and rustic West. The room had all the amenities, very clean and the bed was firm & comfortable. The glass windows were letting in bright sun light through the windows and one could see the famous Sandia Mountain that is a hallmark of Albuquerque. It was so bright outside that my not so sophisticated camera could not capture a good picture of the mountain. So, what on the photos was the flat area before the mountain and the parking area towards the hotel.
Staff was very friendly and efficient; Starting front desk staff, Alexis and Louis to room service, all members of the hotel crew seemed happy to help you in whatever way they could.
The only thing I did not like about the hotel was the food at the restaurant. Obviously, guests went out to enjoy many restaurants in the vicinity, but I was attending a conference and did not want to walk out for lunch. On the first day there was a long wait for lunch. I ordered a taco salad and was very disappointed because even the fast food restaurant Taco Bell surely makes a better taco salad than this restaurant and at a fraction of the price. At night we had a gala dinner, there too I found the food t be rather tasteless. During the lunch on the following day there was no wait which was nice, but the food was again equally tasteless. May be they do not expect guests to eat at the restaurant? Also there was no other choice within the hotel to purchase a small non-junk food item in a café or a shop. I hope the management will look into this for the benefit of the people who attend conferences in the convention center.
All in all, I enjoyed my stay at the hotel Albuquerque and would recommend the place to anyone. I would also suggest dining in one of the many nice restaurants in Old Town rather than in the hotel.
