My ABQ Hotel: Did I Screw Up?

Jump to last reply

I'm visiting New Mexico for a week in May and looking forward to it. My last 2 nights will be spent in the "Q", allowing me one full day of sight-seeing before jetting out.

So I went to Priceline and bid $65 on a 3.5* hotel, hoping for Anduluz or the Sheraton Uptown. "No Way!" said The Man. Feeling a bit itchy on the trigger finger, I tried again right away, dropping down to a 3* for $60 with visions of Hyatt or Hotel Albuquerque dancing in my head. The next thing I knew Bill Shatner was congratulating me on my "Winning Bid". I am now proud owner of two nights at the Radisson!

Next stop was Trip Advisor, where I learned that my hotel was far down on their list of recommendations, ha-ha. Well, at least there's the Water Park. I thought, being the optimistic soul that I am. Noooooooo, it's only open Fri-Sun and my stay is Mon-Wed. Ha-ha-ha-ha!

OK, but what about the price? A little research uncovered that rooms at the Park Inn Radisson start at $139/night. I did The Math: Shatner & The Big Deal delivered for almost 60% off, as advertised!!!!! Moral of This Story: Be careful what you bid on . . . because you just might get it?

Seriously, Folks-In-The-Know: is this place THAT bad? Thinking positive: from what I gather, it has free parking, a nice indoor pool (separate from the Water Park, I think), and pretty decent-looking guestrooms (thanks to a $20 million renovation).

How about location? Are there any good restaurants close by? If I want to visit Old Town, Nob Hill, and Route 66 should I drive, take the bus, or can I walk?

Please let me know how to make the best out of this. Thanks.
