Great place for balloon fest

We really enjoyed the hotel. The staff were friendly for the most part. We really appreciated the fact when we arrived late after the balloon fest, they allowed us to order dinner and relax in the lobby. Very good buffet! Nice place to unwind.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

I wished they had a shuttle bus that was complimentary for the hotel to the balloon fest. The amount that you were expected to pay, I feel was unacceptable. I also felt there was not enough of them. They filled too Quickly, and you were left to fend for yourself.

Late breakfast with no silverware?

I had a taxi call for 6:30 AM & a room service order for 6:00 AM. Breakfast arrived at 6:17 WITH NO SILVERWARE!! First a breakfast delivered after 6:15 was supposed to be free. Second, when I called the front desk they rushed me a pre-pack of cheap to-go plastic utensils, including a knife that couldn't cut the French toast. One of the fork tines broke as I tried to tear the toast into manageable size bites. Room service & timing sucked. Then I'd also called for bell service to get my bags before the 6:30 taxi arrived. Did I get it? No! Taxi arrived, & I was forced to go to lobby to get my own cart... and there was the bellman waiting for the elevator at 6:35. Really a disappointing experience... also no courtesy hotel - airport shuttle. So add a $30 taxi to the cost of an executive suite for an exhausted traveler needing to get to the airport by 7 AM.

Decent Stay

This was my second stay at this hotel. I like that the rooms are clean, the location is convenient (e.g., close to I-25, NE Heights, West Side and UNM) and it is quite at night. The pool ammenity could use some work. Otherwise, a pretty good stay for the price.

Outdated hote, greatly overrated

We stayed at this hotel in October 2013 for a couple of nights. The place feels like it's in a HUGE need of renovation. Not only did the furniture in the rooms look outdated and cheap, but also the bathroom looked awful and you could see the wear and tear everywhere. I couldn't force myself to take shower there! This hotel feels like a glorified motel with this outdated wallpaper and scratched plywood desk. The hotel also feels cheap, even a much cheaper hotel would have more to offer. There was no complimentary shower cap, the soap smelled like it were from a rural gas station. Breakfasts aren't included, of course - it's Marriott, baby! And the internet isn't free either, you have to pay $13 per day. Even cheap motels have free wi-fi! But hey, it's Marriott, baby, remember? But the absolutely worst thing was the broken plumbing - you could hear people flushing the toilet all the way above you (we were on the 2nd floor). All night straight! Every 5-10 min. someone flushes the toilet and you hear it as if it happens in your room. Very annoying! We had to change the room and the plumbing was broken in that part of the building too (they put us on the 3rd floor). The beds are VERY hard, so unless you don't mind feeling stiff in the morning, stay away from this hotel.

coming back home from Las Veges

We had a good experience there, they were good enough to save us a room because we got in late, but it is not the room that we had booked. we booked at king size bed and we got two queens. My husband call down to the front desk they said we can give a free breakfast we that was fine. the next morning we went down to eat ever thing was fine until we got are bill. Our waitres Karen gave us are bill did not explain any thing to us so we had to wait 10 mins for here to came back to us and I had to ask her about she explain it. Karen said all you have to do is leave a 18% tip. We did not leave her a tip because she was rude and she told us that we had to leave her a tip. I think tips should be given to had working waitress. would I stay there again sure. would I eat at the hotel no most likely not I would go to a burger king or a sonic.

Albuqueque Fall 2012

The hotel was nice, bathroom was cramped for two but okay. The thing I disliked the most was when we looked out the window we were greeted with a wall that was at least 9 foot tall. That was very unpleasant to say the least. A view of the parking lot or an office building is better than that. I don't think we will stay there again. Location of the hotel was great, close to the balloon park. We were expecting better food and service at the resturant but were disappointed on both counts. This has been a yearly trip for us and we thought we would try a new hotel closer to the park but are going to go back to the other hotel even tho it is farther away.
