Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town
Ranked #10 of 143 Hotels in Albuquerque
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 11, 2014

If you want to experience the culture of Albuquerque you must staff here in Old Town. You can walk out the doors of the side of the hotel right into old town which has lovely boutiques and restaurants. The grounds of the hotel are really nice, lovely pool and chapel and outdoor areas. The restaurant is really nice and there is also a dancing/salsa club. Happy hour at the restaurant/bar is fantastic - great marguarita's and complimentary food and snacks. The staff are very friendly - great meeting rooms too for a conference. Only reason I didn't give them a 5 was because they are really lacking a concierge to arrange anything (i.e. car rental, money transfers, shuttles etc.,).

Room Tip: the higher floors have great views of the mountains

So happy to have been able to stay here. Gardunos was great and their staff was outstanding. We stayed here for a wedding and they were very accommodating. We are from out of town and would we come back again? The answer is yes, we will be back for the balloon fiesta and I'm telling all my rich friends to stay here. Suggestion: you need to update the tvs in the rooms. Good looking management.

Everything about the service for this event was spectacular.
Hotel ABQ is a beautiful property, in excellent condition, with a warm, elegant SW ambiance.
Every member of the staff that I worked with was courteous, professional, and went above and beyond their required service to make sure the event was a complete success.
Our guests were very well treated and everything ran on time.
The requested space and equipment were all in top notch condition, provided promptly and met the required levels of performance.
The food was excellent and the variety of meals offered to us delighted every segment of our audience.
Several members of the staff came by while we were setting up to make sure we had everything we needed, and even offered equipment we had not ordered to make the event event more amazing.
Special kudos to Courtney Ortiz who organized every last detail, Garritt who was everywhere at once helping with any detail, and Joe from the Hotel AV who enhanced our order with extras to knock the socks off our presenters and audience.
I highly recommend this beautiful property and its friendly and accomplished staff!

After visiting 6 properties over the past week in New Mexico, it is thrilling to see the consistency and cultural experience that Heritage Hotels & Resorts offers to its guests. Not only was I welcomed with friendly staff, but the inclusion of the LGBT community at each property was visible and refreshing. The rooms were clean and the custodial staff was amazing (Erma on the 11th floor was truly a beautiful human being who was not only conversational, but warm and compassionate).

The conference space was excellent for the scope of client that frequents this venue. I would love to give a special shout out to Cainan, Gretchen, and Josh at the front desk for being extremely accommodating and adding to the overall exemplary experience I had while at Hotel Albuquerque.

We have stayed at this hotel previously, and had a good experience. However, since Heritage took over it has gone downhill. The bathtub in our room was peeling, the carpet was stained and dirty and the food was very mediocre. When we complained to the manager about the bathtub -there was actually rust around the peeling areas - she simply said "thanks for letting me know" and didn't seem to care. The staff at the front desk were all nice, but said they had no control over the condition of the hotel.We asked about moving rooms, but they were full with a convention. We will not stay there again.Oh, yes! The housekeeper said she couldn't change the sheets because the iron in the laundry was broken - therefore, no clean sheets.

Room Tip: Perhaps the suites are in better shape.

We stayed here recently after an airline re-routing left us in Albuquerque late at night. We found the Hotel ABQ via a mobile app. Based on good TripAdvisor reviews, we chose it over less expensive options that were also closer to the airport…Turned out to be a good choice.

Room 911 had a comfortable king bed and is spacious and quiet. Like many rooms there, it had a small balcony facing Old Town. There is also a well-maintained courtyard garden (where we had breakfast the following morning). One quibble -- when we adjusted the thermostat in our room the fan ran continuously the rest of the night; we were unable to shut it off.

The comfort was nice after a tough travel day, but the main reason I recommend the Hotel Albuquerque Old Town is superior customer service.

The next day, after we had checked out, I received a call from the Hotel’s housekeeping manager, who asked if my wife had forgotten anything…. In fact, she had — her wedding and engagement rings, which in our sleep deprivation we had forgotten on the counter. The housekeeper had seen them and, without touching them, immediately alerted the manager, who found our reservation details and called us. She locked them in the hotel safe until we could return the following day and retrieve them, and she even called the next morning to confirm we were coming.

Thank you, Laura (housekeeping) and Barbara Apodaca (housekeeping manager) for your scrupulous honesty and extraordinary level of service.
