The Hilton Albuquerque is dated on the outside but has been updated in many areas on the interior. The halls need a bit of freshing up but the rooms are nicely designed and spacious. The layout with a sofa, coffee table, and work desk is good. Lighting in the room is also more than adequate with 7 separate lamps. The staff are friendly and cheerful and willing to help. A non-smoking room was not available when I checked in but I was offered one first thing in the morning which made the rest of my stay much more enjoyable. Parking can be a problem on Friday and Saturday nights but there is an overflow lot to the north that is shared by the valet parking lot.
Conveniently located to Old Town (less than 10 minutes), Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (5 minutes), and the University of New Mexico (10 minutes) just off of I-40 at University and I-25 at Menaul. If you can get the government rate it is truly a deal (and they will ask for a government ID unlike a lot of places so no fibbing at this property).
Unique Quality: Sofa and coffee table in room. Free wifi. Good central location; not within walking distance to anything however.
Directions: At the junction of I-40 and I-25
I moved here because my boss started travelling to ABQ also, and he thought I should upgrade from the Hampton Inn.
This is NOT my favorite hotel. The hallways are dingy, and it takes forever to get something brought to your room--something that they forgot. There are rooms facing the Sandia Mtns, however, they also face the intersections of 1-25 and 1-40.
However, we get good rates, ($68 to $99/night) and I complain enough that I usually end up getting a complementary breakfast!
Unique Quality: Nice courtyard in back with pool. Often they have some local band playing back there, so you can kick back with a drink. The bands help drown out the highway noise!
Generally this inn is good. But I can say that accomodation in the US is expensive. Compare to my country, the price can already accmodate you a 4-5 star hotel.
Choose the right room with no whistling windows. Or check if the windows are tightly close. I happened to stay on room with whistling windows :)
Directions: In Front of Intel Corporation Rio Rancho.
