Adjacent to the Albuquerque Convention Center, this upscale high-rise comprises a pair of soaring, desert-color towers that figure prominently in the city's skyline. The gleaming art deco–inspired interior is refined and not overbearing. The contemporary rooms, done in mauve, burgundy, and tan, combine Southwestern style with all the amenities you'd expect of a high-caliber business-oriented hotel, including Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs, plush pillow-top
mattresses, and fluffy bathrobes. Forque serves steaks, chops, chicken, and seafood (and breakfast to the power crowd), and there's also a Starbucks on-site. Bigwigs of all stripes stay in the penthouse.
