This curious ziggurat-shaped 10-story building fits in nicely with the other examples of postmodern architecture that have sprung up in northern Albuquerque. It's among the more upscale chain hotels in the north Interstate 25 corridor, and it's an excellent base for exploring Northeast Heights and the North Valley—plus it's a bit closer to Santa Fe than Downtown or airport hotels. Rooms have sponge-painted walls, dapper country-French decor, large flat-screen TVs, and
open onto a soaring atrium lobby. Perks include evening turndown service and newspapers delivered to the room each morning.
