This is a beautiful hotel, really gorgeous, the ambience is great. I had stayed here before for a business conference a couple of years ago and wanted to stay again. I remember the bed being much more comfortable on my last stay. I don't know if I just had a nicer room last time, or if they changed the mattress or what...but the bed was not super comfortable. Our adult children live in Albuquerque, so we have to stay often and I am in constant search of a hotel with a comfortable bed. This wasn't it. The other thing that bothered me was there seemed to be only one access point to our room (at least if you are staying in the main building of the hotel) and that is a very tiny, slow moving elevator that is also the only access point to their popular rooftop bar. So I want to go to my car and I am in my slippers and yoga pants with a messy bun and it's about 10 pm and the only way to get to my car is to use the tiny elevator that is filled with well-dressed, slightly inebriated hipsters...so THAT was uncomfortable. I would have liked to have used a back staircase and NOT walked through the lobby to get to my car. Finally, although it is located near downtown Albuquerque,it is not a convenient walk...just a little too far from shops, restaurants, etc. The breakfast was just 'meh', we went out for breakfast. It is a bit more expensive than what we would usually pay, but I'm not sure that it was worth it.
