Hyatt Regency Albuquerque
Travel Blogs from Albuquerque
We knew when we got up today that there was a chance for some sour weather but we still wanted to make sure we got the most out of our day so we headed for Old Town to experience some of the local culture. We got lucky and happened to be there on a day of a festival which closed the streets through Old Town (presumably for a parade that we just …
... I think I like the dinner menu better than the lunch menu but all in all it was good and we had a nice time. It's always helpful to remember what we ordered for our next visit, so...

... to private individuals who owned ranch lands (3000 acres) around the crater. At the same time, the Dept. of Interior declared this area a National Landmark. You can read more at: http://www.meteorcrater.com/. Thus, this Park is privately owned.
At 10:30AM we headed toward Albuquerque on I-40, with the hundreds of twists and turns through gorgeous mesas and red cliffs. ...
... many people in the community in many different contexts. I have many different strategies that I will include in my report. We headed out to Pueblo Laguna about 45 mins from town. We were very fortunate that Kori could take us around her community. We visited the head start program and the Kindy room where her son Dante attends. Dante's tribal name is Big Bear, Little Eagle. You take the big of the Mother, so in the case of Dante, his mother is Big Bear, ...
... join us on this trip. I am a tiny bit afraid of heights, but I really didn't feel nervous taking the tram. It moved a lot less than I thought it would too. The scariest thing was actually seeing the crash site for a TWA flight that hadn't seen or been able to maneuver around Sandia. Luckily, very little is left except for some small metal objects that glint in the light as you float by, but, since I have a slight preoccupation with plane crashes, it was very eerie to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Albuquerque
We stayed here for a convention during March of 2004. The rooms were nice, but not top of the line. The downtown area was pretty dead and we did not feel entirely comfortable walking at night. During the lunch hour there were nice places within walking distance. The staff was friendly enough. If I were on vacation, I would not stay here for the price. For a convention, it's OK.
This convention hotel is showing its age.
Rooms are a little dingy and the air seemed very stale.
Not much nice to say about the lobby bar employees, either.
However, checkin is very good and the location is just across the street from the convention center.
We went to the Balloon Festival and stayed at the Hyatt. It was easily accessible with a very clean, secure parking garage included in price of room. Don't walk downtown at night, it was pretty deserted but the hotel restaurant was good (but slow). I would stay there again.
Great stay at the Hyatt
I was a little hesitant to stay at this hotel after some of the negative reviews I read. I called to check in early for a wedding and was told I'd be put on the list. When I arrived I was given a corner room with an incredible view. The room was very clean and had a contemporary feel to it. This was a great hotel and an incredible value via priceline.
Unfriendly from registration to restaurant
We were told to pay for our stay at check in, we had already paid in full. There were 3 in the room every day we had to ask for towels for the third guest. The maid left our door ajar after she finished cleaning. The following day she said to me "I closed the door this time." The bathroom was left dirty. The pool lining was lifting. I watched the tables in the restaurant reset without being wiped. When I complained the reply was "what do you expect me to do about it?"
Very classy hotel. The service was excellent from the professional front desk staff to room service. Rooms were clean and well maintained. The McGrath's restaurant in the hotel served excellent food both for breakfast and dinner. Only downside I experienced was that the rooms were rather stuffy since none of the windows opened - but this is to expected with such a tall hotel. Would highly recommend.
Bored at the Hyatt
Area around the hotel was dead at night. Had to walk two blocks to get anything to eat. Paying eight dollars to park at the hotel was a bit hard to swallow. The atmosphere was very cold and un-inviting. Never was greeted and ahd to wait several minutes at the front desk before someone appeared at both check in and out.
There are better hotels in the city.
As I say in the title, the Hyatt in downtown ABQ is like a Honda - reliable, clean, simple, does everything very well, but nothing unique or special about it.
My husband and I stayed here for only one night, but it was really nice. The city views are great. The service was great. There are quite a few shops in the lobby, Starbucks, car rental and news shops. The restaurant in the hotel itself had pretty good food. We would definitely stay here again.
Good.. as expected
We stayed at the Hyatt last week. It was very nice. The rooms have a great view of the mountains. Exercise room is nice size. Starbucks in the same building. It is located in the heart of downtown, so it is only 5 mi from airport and only a couple of miles from Old Town, Univ of NM. The only thing that wasn't up to par was the shower. The water pressure was low and the showerhead just wasn't right. I would definitely stay here again.
