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.
The Honda of Downtown Albuquerque Hotels
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.
I spent four nights there and everything was slick. Clean, good maid service, big rooms, just what you expect from a Hyatt. The hotel feels about 15 years old, which is not a problem, but keeps it fairly boring.
The views are very excellent - ABQ does not have many big buildings (in fact, the Hyatt and its twin building are the ABQ skyline), so being up high is a plus. I was in town at the time of the hot air balloon festival, and it was nice to be high enough to see the balloons float by from my room.
The location is good - downtown ABQ is so small that regardless of where you stay, you are close to everything downtown, and far away from everything not downtown. I did not eat at the restaurant, but there is a Starbucks downstairs on the property.
I got an excellent rate for this hotel through hotwire.com, and here's a tip - hotwire does not disclose the name of its hotels until after you purchase, but the Hyatt is the only 4 star hotel I know of in downtown ABQ, so if you use hotwire and pull a cheap rate for a 4 star hotel in downtown ABQ, it's almost certainly the Hyatt.
So long as you do not need that "New Mexico" feel from your hotel in ABQ, the Hyatt is great in every respect, just like a Honda.
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.

... Venues such as the Michigan peninsula and Prince Edward Island were discussed as possibilities. Tom will look into the Michigan option and John will check out the P.E.I. possibility.
After supper Jack suggested we go to downtown Albuquerque and have a drink at the Ibiza rooftop bar located in the Hotel Andaluz. As there were no counter arguments of any merit, off we went to visit this historic landmark hotel. Fun fact: the Hotel Andaluz ...
Had one of my best nights sleep last night. Early to bed, early to rise! The haunted caboose did not disappoint. We had three separate occurrences last night. Beds shaking twice and an invisible presence putting its hand on Genevas back ... Spooky! I didn't feel mischievous spirits ... Which isn't a bad thing.

... long and we had no idea how deep! Mark (who was driving) threw caution to the wind and just went for it! It was deep, but not deep enough to cause any issues and the only lasting effect from driving through it was having out lovely white car be brown from the tyres up half the doors!!! Mark laughed so hard at my jumping at the muddy water hitting my window... I can laugh about it.... now!!!

... t like me. It was a fantastic plateful though for $12.
After lunch we went to the plaza to listen to some music at the bandstand. To be honest we could have sat there all day in the sun. As Santa Fe is 7000ft above sea level it was hot (75F) but pleasant enough to sit in.
We left Santa Fe and back on to Route 66 for Albuquerque around 1.00pm. You could see the temperature gauge on the dashboard rise as ...
... the day, we decided to ride the world’s longest aerial tram, on the east side of Albuquerque, a ride that took us up the side of a mountain to its crest at 10,378 feet. Up there the temperature was 0 degrees Celsius, it was snowing a bit, and the wind was howling. We could see for miles over the Rio Grande River basin, over the city of Albuquerque to the west and over Santa Fe to the east. The panoramic views were ...
