I recently returned to this hotel after having a really nice experience the last time (see my previous posting from last summer). And, although this visit was pretty consistent with the last on most accounts, unfortunately I felt the service in the restaurant was lacking ... or at least it left much to be desired.
During my first night, I ate in the restaurant, and though the food was good, the service was horrible. I just about swore off ever eating at the hotel again, except that the following night I stopped in at the bar for a drink before heading out for dinner, and eventually (and fortunately) decided to just stay in and have dinner there again (granted I was a bit lazy to leave the hotel ... it was a long day). I'm certainly glad I decided to stay, because the young woman at the bar (I think her name was Kim) exhibited exceptional personal skills and provided fantastic dinner service (albeit a bar dinner). Thank you Kim (I hope I have your name right) for redeeming my impression of the hotel's service rating.
So, other than the less than desirable service in the restaurant, the hotel is still a top stop for me when I'm in Albuquerque.
