          A nice hotel. It's very affordable and really easy to find, it's right off the highway. It's also ten minutes away from a pretty spiffy shopping center that includes a huge movie theater that sells Starbucks frappachinos, and some nice restaurants like Red Robin, Cheddars, Fuddruckers, and Coldstone Creamery, just to name a few. The hotel itself is four stories. It doesn't have a breakfast buffet like other hotel chains do, but they do give you breakfast vouchers for their restaurant's breakfast, only it's a real sit-down meal, as opposed to an easy in easy out sort of meal. The room is a good size. We had a room with two queens. The rooms have a fridge, but not a microwave. The bathroom is small and a bit cramped, but still has a nice shower, free amenities like makeup remover pads, shampoo, and conditioner, as well as a hair dryer. The shower has good hot water and strong pressure. There's an LCD TV set with tons of channels, and a coffee maker that comes with packets of Seattle's Best Coffee. The AC in the room works very well and you can control the temperature of the room. The hotel has a nice sized swimming pool that goes up to six feet deep and a small hot tub that's plenty hot. The staff at the hotel is really nice and helpful, and there's also room service, as well as somebody at the front desk 24/7. There's also a small laundry room on each floor, but we didn't need to use it, at the time. It's also animal friendly, so if you travel with a dog, it's welcome to stay with you, I saw all sorts of dogs on the property. There's also WiFi, but it's very slow WiFi.

          CONS: The bathroom is quite small. The hot tub is in an area where lots of leaves and debris tend to fall into the hot tub. The luggage trolleys are also very big, while the elevators are tiny and the luggage trolley can only fit on horizontally,and it's impossible to fit the trolley and more then one adult in the elevator. Also very slow internet.

          Overall, a great stay, and a great value. Highly recommended if you're just passing through Albuquerque for the night.

          Check in was easy, rooms were large and clean. This is non smoking hotel so it suited me just fine. It is located 300m from the Old Town and it is next door to a very good restuarant / bar

          Up at 7:30. Left at 9:00 for a guided walking tour of Old Town which was very interesting. Moved on to Santa Fe where we did a tram tour then had lunch and a couple of beers in the Thunderbird Bar. Back to the hotel for 5:00 and had a nap. We went back to St Clair Bistro for dinner but although the food was good the service was poor.

          I arrived in Albuquerque a few hours early on Sunday and made the first of several trips to Old Town, the 300-year-old original settlement. Old Town was a short walk from our hotel, though it seems longer at this altitude (a little higher than Denver!). The city is having an early spring and everything seems to be in bloom.

          We are getting ready to leave for New York City in just 2 more days. We can't wait! We have been doing a lot of planning.

          There are several reasons why we decided to go to New York. We had free round-trip flights and three nights of free hotel, and started thinking about where we wanted to go and use the flights and hotel nights. Ever since we went to NYC ...
