I was driving to Tucson via Albuquerque and booked this room, asking for 'high floor' and if a view, would like that. I got room 356 which faces a lovely courtyard. I'm sure when the big tree is in bloom it is really pretty. The young man at the desk (Alec ? Alex?) helped me get to the hotel because I chose to take my navigation's directions instead of mapquest (mistake). I asked him for a recommendation for 'good mexican food' and he suggested a place 2 blocks away THE RIDGE CAFE. It was great New Mexico cuisine, highly recommended.
I tried to use the workout room (you have to go outside in the chill to get there) and it wouldn't open and was supposed to be open after 5 a.m. I asked the young lady at the desk and she said 'I'll call security' but though I waited for a few minutes inside with a view of the door to that room, no one came.
Had the complimentary breakfast; a really tasty southwest omelette you 'cooked' in the microwave, some grapefruit in a little cup, milk, coffee & a banana to take with me.
The coffee makers in the room are silly as they only make one LITTLE cup at a time. I think probably most people staying in a room are couples and so it should be at least a 2 cup maker. I myself made 2 cups just for me.
The room is HUGE and very Marriott and has a big sofa that is a pull-out so that would be great for a family visit.
I probably would stay here again but when I come back through in March I'll probably just try some other place to see what I can get for around the same price.
