... He told us about the driving DUI's out here (we find it incredible that the 'designated driver' drinks the same if not more than us) and the altitude apparently gets you drunker quicker...that explains me this evening. We got the hotel shuttle back to the hotel and grabbed a quick drink to the hotel bar. Vicki had a cigarette outside then we went back and chilled out in the room for the rest of the ...
Beautiful Scenery on Flight Back to HOT New Mexico
The flight was pretty bumpy but the pilot was a very funny guy.
Things like, "oops, they didn't have the road construction sign up on
that one" and so on. Made it a little more tolerable. He also pointed
out geographic sights as we flew along like Bryce Canyon, Marble Canyon
and others. We were also able to see the smoke from the fire in the

... t have any expectations for the show and wasn't completely sure it would be something we enjoyed. Oh my goodness, was I ever wrong. This show was one of the funniest plays I've seen. It was a very family friendly play (although Greg did get embarrassed when one of the actresses showed her girdle), the music was good, the plot was great and the cast was unbelievably fantastic. I haven't laughed so hard in quite some time. Bren ...

After about a hour of me waiting outside (yes, I got there really early to make sure I was in the right place and to have a buffer time in case I have to find the van somewhere else), the white passenger van finally arrived and it parked right in front of me! YAY!
I got on the van with some crazy old man with a 'fro who kept telling me about his dog who was bit ...

I would recommend staying at this hotel, it was not far from ' Old Town', where there are many cute shops and restaurants. It is rather more for souvenirs shopping, but I did happen to buy a beautiful jacket at" The Wild Rose', which had absolutely stunning mid west looking clothing.The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. It was nice to have a suite as I was sharing a room with my friend, so if you wanted to stay up and watch TV, or go on your computer you would not bother your roomie. You can make your own coffee( which was horrible, I would recommend the Starbucks right in the hotel, It was quite and charming w/ a mid west look and accents.

Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Hotel Albuquerque
The rooms are new, lovely and generously sized, the facility is really nicely decorated and the breakfast was great, including the wonderful cooks who made omelets to order. The front desk crew was always friendly and seemingly helpful. The location was convienient to everything we wanted to see. This hotel would clearly merit 5 stars if not for some major service issues.
We stayed at the Embassy Suites in July in the middle of a two week family vacation. I have to say that staying at this hotel was a highlight of the trip. We spent four nights at this hotel and loved every minute of it! I was traveling with two kids (ages 6 and 8). Every person we encounted in the hotel were professional and courteous. I had reserved the corner suite but room was not ready upon check-in at 5 p.m. After traveling in the car with little ones, I didn't want to wait but took a king suite on the sixth floor. The concierge was very helpful in directing me to restaurants and activities that were age appropriate for the kids.
Great! Best hotel stay in a long time...
What an amazing hotel! The staff were extraordinarily helpful, the breakfast buffet was overwhelming and the room was beyond any expectations. A very comfortable stay, made all the better by the friendliness of the staff.
This is one of the best Embassy Suites hotels that my family and I have stayed at. Our suite was decorated in a very attractive Southwestern style and overlooked the Sandia Mountains. The staff was attentive and friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was fabulous. The fitness center had state-of-art equipment and was open 24 hours. The hotel is close to Old Town, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, and musuems. I highly recommend it.
Best Hotel By Far
This was our last stop before home on a 15 day roadtrip. This hotel is BY FAR the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail is unbelieveable. The beds are heavenly, decor is very appealing. The staff is the most polite hotel staff we have ever encountered. The manager's reception was wonderful. The conceirge was very helpful. But the view was by far the best thing. We were on the 7th floor in a west facing room. Seeing the hot air balloons taking off in the morning was such a sight to behold.
If you are going to be in the Albuquerque area, this is THE place to stay!
Room cost was $149 per night.
Had a chance to stay at this hotel twice within a week period and was able to experience all sides of it. Our first stay was on the 9th floor where you get a balcony. The second stay was a standard suite on the 4th floor, however facing the west which includes a much better view in my opinion than an east view which involves overlooking the highway, but does afford a little closer view of nearby mountains. Food was excellant as was the pool area. Service is phenomenal, really treating each guest as their only one. Highly recommend getting a 9th floor room, affording a western view.
What a wonderful 2-night stay my husband and I had at the Embassy Suites! Super comfy king size bed, spacious rooms and very clean. Room service was quick, quite reasonable and good food. The free made to order breakfasts are fantastic! Best hotel workout room I've used....ellipticals, treadmills and recumbent bikes, plus weights and bench and TV to watch. Very picky husband says he can't wait to stay there again!
This ES was absolutely wonderful. Great service. Beautiful spotless room. The beds were heavenly. Attentive staff. My son and I were there for only one night, and we wished we were staying for several days. This was our fourth hotel in five nights on our vacation and it definitely stood out as the best. The breakfast was excellent too! I would highly recommend this hotel for vacationers and business travelers alike.
This was an extremely beautiful, comfortable, quiet, and well located hotel. It had all the latest and newest things... including great beds. We were there on the weekend and loved the close proximity to Old Town and the museums. It sets a difficult standard for other hotels to meet.
One of the best Embassies yet!
As a hotel snob, and especially an Embassy Suite snob, the new Albuquerque Embassy Suites by far has the best one I've been to yet.. It's beautifully accented with natural hues of the Southwest. It certainly does not try to be anything other than New Mexico style... Some Embassy Suites are adorned with brass and mirrors with lots of feaux features, but not this one! I'd recommend staying here anytime. And for the price (average Rack is $149), you can't beat it...
