... on the original road at about 45 if the road is anything close to smooth and slower if rough. When we were about 10 miles from our lunch destination, the engine seemed to be loosing power. I kept watching the engine temp and monitoring that the oil pressure was holding. I noted that I had the pedal closer to the floor than usual. I was concerned that I was loosing the engine. I was feeling a buildup of pressure in ...
... Barrel in Gallup but but other than that it was pretty uneventful drive home - except for the fantastic double rainbow we saw just past Gallup. It was so brilliant we had to take an exit where we could stop and get out to take some pictures. It was just gorgeous! That was a nice way to end our weekend! Now back home where it's 95. I never thought 95 would be considered "cooler temps" but after visiting Phoenix in late June, most anything is cooler temps!
Left Amarillo, Texas on Wed 13th March at about 8-45am. Has been one month since we left Oz. How time flies when you're having fun!!
Crossed into New Mexico at approx 9-55am. Stopped to fuel up and had the worst coffee and worst donut ever. Servo was off the beaten track and looked like it was in the middle of the desert in the middle of nowhere.
Arrived at Albuquerque KOA Kampground. Very mexican housing, lots of dust, not much green ...
We headed for Acoma pueblo, built on a high mesa, where the Acoma people have survived horrific torture, enslavement, kidnapping and forced conversion, to return to their ancestral religion and way of life. The visitor centre is an architectural gem and the guided tour was a rare privilege, offering insight into the spirituality and artistry of these peaceable people.
The land we ...
I have to imagine that this is the ONLY high school in the country (possibly in the world) that has Dale Chihuly hanging in the dining room. Asked around, they are the real thing. Asked some more, but the students didn't know how they got here. "We must have some pull," said one, under-statedly. Internet research reveals that in a 10.5 million dollar renovation in 2000-2001, Chihuly designed the chandeliers for that very ...

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.
