Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree by Hilton Albuquerque
This hotel appears to have undergone a recent physical overhaul. However, front desk and housekeeping problems are evident. The hotel also charges for internet use -- a rarity in today's market. Front desk staff were pleasant and efficient but made a major error to my bill. My room had a stained bed cover, and the used coffee supplies of the previous visitor were still in the bathroom. The inhouse restaurant featured some very good food presented well. However, the wait staff was extremely slow. I'd probably select a different hotel if I need to be in Albuquerque again.
A little disappointing.....
Doubletree downtown is easy accessible and the staff is helpful, but the hotel is average, not impressive. Hotel room is average and basic, not the usual nicer Doubletree. Recommend only if you need simple room in downtown Albuquerque for one day and easy access to Central Expwy.
Nice place to stay
My family and I stayed for a night at the Doubletree downtown. The property has a nice bar and the breakfast was great. We were given some breakfast and drink coupons from the front desk for upgrading the room. The pool was small, but it overlooked the Plaza, which during this summer has different music groups every weekend. The bands played while my kids swam. The rooms were nice, cozy, and comfortable. I felt like my kids were safe during the stay and they enjoyed it. The staff at the front desk was nice. We walked to the downtown area for some dinner and there was only one place, a street with quite a few bars on it, that had some homeless people that didn't look like I wanted to walk past. Other than that, I would stay there again.
Old Rundown with Unhappy Staff
My husband and I just returned from the Double Tree Downtown, did not have a good experience, no water pressure in the shower, slow old elevators, staff seemed bitter about working or having to speak to you. We paid for an upgraded room with a king, only received one robe and no cookies!!
Great stay and value
This hotel is in a great location for downtown. The price of the room was great. I booked on hilton and got the room for 89$+tax a night. No problems with staff or the room. Not a spectacular hotel, but it is a good value.
Clean, good staff, great price via Priceline...Would stay again. The room was Faux southwestern style, and had perhaps the largest hotel bathroom I've seen in years.
We recently stayed at the Doubletree in downtown Albuquerque. It was only a block away from the Hyatt and there were several restuarants within walking distance. Our room was very nice, bed was very comfortable. I think it must have been updated recently. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. A couple of complaints, could hear music from the hallway in the room and the restuarants buffet was horrible (it was included in our rate). I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a decent deal in the downtown area.
Had a great stay at this hotel this last week. The room was clean, the service was great and the amenities were quite comfortable. Breakfast in the dining room was great, but the service at lunchtime was not the best. The waitress was either very rude or very overwhelmed.... we gave her the benefit of the doubt. I would stay here again.
Go for the Hyatt, choose this one only by default..
I stayed at the Doubletree recently for a conference. The property needs upgrading. It felt very 1970's in the rooms. The carpets seemed somewhat dingy. The restaurant for dinner was great in the hotel. If you see a crowd, go somewhere else for breakfast (Garcia's Kitchen was great). The staff at breakfast was disorganized and I had to wait 30 minutes for cold eggs! Not to mention the fact that there was no one who even bothered to help me upon my departure from the restaurant. Anyway, the cookies were great, and I did get a sound night's sleep.
Doubletree property needs renovating...
Stayed at the Doubletree February 23-27. The property is in need of a complete renovation from carpet to bedding etc. Service was adequate.
For a business traveler looking for only a place to sleep, this is your hotel. However, don't overpay for the room. If you are looking for more amenities and luxury, you will need to look elsewhere.

... for a while. The movie was really good. <b><i><u>Shopping and Dinner and Ice Cream, oh my...</u></i></b> 5:30pm (MT): Albuquerque, New Mexico. None of us were very hungry due to the giant popcorn and drink at the movie, so we decided to go shopping for a little while at ABQ Uptown, an open air mall. We then decided to eat a McAlister's Deli and all had ...
... mountains. It hit us as we got to the turn off to Moriarty and it's pumpkin patch and play area. Andy saw lightening strike straight ahead in the direction we were heading & hoping it would have done its business by the time we reached it. Funny to actually see some Tumbleweed rolling across our path. It started to hammer it down with rain, and we'd only just dried off from our cooling dip. Albuquerque's strip was 18 miles long. Historic downtown - is where the liveliest ...
Before we left Holbrook today, we went back to take some pictures of a place we saw yesterday. It's the Wigwam Motel. The cabins consist of metal wigwams, with a door and 3 windows each. It strongly reminds us of the Cozy Cone Motel in the Pixar movie, "Cars." The motel dates from the heyday of Route 66, so it could have been the inspiration for the Cozy Cone Motel in the movie. To enhance the parallel, ...
... Volcanos that formed the basin of Albuquerque and to the foot hills of the Sandia Mountain and visited the casino. We enjoyed driving the beautiful streets and seeing the different styles of homes. The gear shifter on my bike broke and could not be fixed so I had to buy a new bike. What fun finding the right one! The four days here went quickly.

Riding the train to Albuquerque is part of the fun involved in taking part in many of these activities. The weather was perfect that day, met some interesting people and had some good food at the Standard Diner located within walking distance of the downtown train station.
