My wife and I stayed at the DoubleTree Hotel for the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. The morning sessions required a 5am departure so sleep was very important. If your neighbors are very quiet, the hotel rooms are fine. But, ours liked to talk at 2am. The walls of this hotel are so thin that we could hear their conversations through the door. At the risk of being crass, I will report that we could even hear them using the toilet. Throughout the night, if other guests are talking in the hallways and opening and closing their doors, this could all be heard very easily in the rooms.
We also had a bad experience at their restaurant, La Oja. I'm sure that this is very much dependent on the quality of your server but ours was terrible. I won't go into detail here but I'd happy to elaborate if anyone would like clarification.
The housekeeping staff was very good and the rooms were always well maintained.
The hotel has a small office center with 3 computers and a computer, all easy to access and very helpful when we had to print out our boarding passes.
The hotel is very close to both I-25 and I-40 as well as the airport (10-15 minutes) so travel is very convenient. However, there are very few good dining options within walking distance of the hotel and you are not quite walking distance to Old Town. Parking is an additional $10 per day.
So, this is not a great hotel but not a bad one either. If you are a light sleeper, be prepared to be woken up frequently if there are other guests coming and going at late hours (and especially if you have someone sleeping next door to you). If you don't have a car, eating may be a challenge, especially if your server at the hotel restaurant is as horrible as ours was.
