Fodor's Expert Review Nativo Lodge

6000 Pan American Freeway NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87109, USA

This five-story Heritage Hotels & Resorts property distinguishes itself, especially in the expansive public areas, with its attractive Southwestern motif that includes hand-carved panels depicting symbols from Native American lore, and river-rock walls. Some rooms have been transformed by contemporary Native American artists who were given free rein, resulting in uniquely dramatic site-specific installations (ask when booking—these rooms are a little pricier), and some have private balconies; all have wing chairs, work desks, and free Wi-Fi. The hotel, a notch-up from the standard franchises in this area, is just off Interstate 25 (higher-up mountain-view rooms are quietest); movie theaters and a bounty of mostly chain restaurants are nearby.
