Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town
800 Rio Grande Blvd. NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87104, USA
At this 11-story Southwestern-style Heritage Hotels & Resorts property overlooking Old Town, attention is paid throughout to New Mexican artisan craftwork, from Nambe Pueblo–designed metalwork to Navajo rugs. The large rooms have elegant, contemporary desert-color appointments, hand-wrought furnishings, and tile bathrooms; most units have a small balcony that opens out onto some fine views. Garduños offers casual New Mexican food; its bar specializes in margarita flights. Thursday's high-energy salsa night in their Q-Bar lounge draws a large local crowd, as do events at their adjacent, historic adobe property, Casa Esencia. Spa treatments and facials are available.
