Just OK

Pros: Clean room, comfortable bed (Tempur-Pedic), Fast Wi-Fi, excellent free breakfast (relative to what most hotels serve as a free breakfast), hot shower, medium size fridge and microwave in room. This would be a great hotel for someone vacationing in the area, who would mostly be driving to attractions. Cons: -Location is about 0.5 miles from Convention Center. The walk between the Convention Center and the hotel is a bit intimidating at night -- deserted streets. I didn't see anything particularly troubling, but I didn't feel 100% safe either. -Room had a desk and a chair, but the chair wasn't on wheels, which I would prefer. Also, there was no other armchair in the room, which nicer hotels tend to have. -One time, I got a signal that there were too many people using the Wi-Fi -- so, I couldn't use it that morning.

perfect for concerting and nightlife

Walking distance to the 2 best personal size music venues in the state of NM. Walking distance to several good restaurants and bars. I was placed in one of their newly renovated rooms which wawanot overdone. Room was very clean. And the beds were very comfy. If you take vacations to only use a hotel for sleeping, this is a perfect hotel. They also have a pretty remarkable breakfast compared to other hotels in its league.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

The Library makes killer mixed and naked drinks. Only 3 blocks away. The Sunshine Theater is 4.5 blocks away, The Launchpad is 2 blocks away. A music lovers dream circuit hotel.

Good location and value for the money

Within walking distance of downtown Albuquerque restaurants and bars, safe gated parking onsite, and friendly staff at the front desk. However the interior design of the rooms and lobby have improvement potentials.

Road tripping pair

The hotel was very nice. I loved that they had gated parking and the breakfast was pretty good. The beds were amazing. Made it hard to get up in the morning.
