Trip Report Weekend in Albuquerque: fun, delicious and beautiful!

Jump to last reply

Just spent a quick weekend in Albuquerque to visit ds. As always, we ate well and saw some beautiful sights.

We flew from NY LGA through Dallas with a delay in DFW due to bad weather in the East which delayed the arrival of our connecting flight. Fortunately, it was only one hour. Unfortunately, they changed the gate many times, so we were walking all over the terminal. We arrived about 2:30, picked up our car rental and headed to the Hyatt on Tijeras. We stayed here before and had some problems, but we were promised a better experience when we returned. Hyatt had a special: stay three nights, pay for two with full breakfast daily in their restaurant, Forque. It was a good deal. And because of the previous stay, they upgraded the room to a high floor with mountain/city view, wine, fruit, cheese, etc. It was a good stay and the location was very convenient for us.

After checkin, I met up with debitnm and we visited over frozen yogurt, caught up since our last meeting almost two years ago and swapped 'gifts!' NY bread from Orwashers for Deb's wonderful, homemade spice rub. It was short, but a great visit.

Then it was time to meet up with ds and have dinner. There were four of us and we ate at Season's in Old Town starting with drinks and calamari upstairs on the outdoor terrace. We then moved downstairs to the dining room for dinner. We shared some apps followed by ribeye steak, grilled tuna and a pork special. Every one enjoyed their meal. More cocktails, NZ Sauvignon Blanc and all were happy, but too full for dessert. A nice employee discount (ds) made the experience even better.
