Hotel location Albuquerque

Jump to last reply

We're driving from Colorado to Albuquerque next month for three nights. If time allows, we might make day trips to Santa Fe and possibly Taos as well as spend some time exploring Old Town and the International Balloon Museum in ABQ.

I'm torn about where to stay (as in location) - I'd prefer a quiet area with easy parking - I'm considering a hotel in Uptown - does that make sense based on what we want to see?

I know some people prefer to stay in Old Town, but I've read quite a few hotel reviews which give me pause - many people have mentioned not feeling safe - it'll be my 81 year old Mom and myself; I don't want to inadvertently end up in a dicey neighborhood.

Also, is parking hard to come by near Old Town? We'll spent at least a few hours there, but it's not the main focus of our trip.
