I arrived in Albuquerque the day prior to when I needed to be in the city.  It was a boring ride from Texas.  I will probably fly next time.

Booking

I searched around the city, as I normally do, on my Marriott and IHG apps.  I came across the Albuquerque Marriott.  The regular rate was $225, while the government/military rate was $93.

Arrival

The hotel is located a few minutes away from the Interstate 40/25 interchange.

Check-in

The front desk is located to the left as you enter the main entrance. Check in was relatively easy.  There was only one customer ahead of me.

There is a business center/seating area to the right as you enter the hotel.

There was a gift shop on the right after the business center.

Room

The room was located on the 12th floor.  It was a Concierge Level room, but I could not visit the lounge because it is not open on weekends.  I made a left after exiting the elevator and the room was on the right.

My initial impression of the room was that it felt spacious…

…until I turned left into the bathroom.  It felt really tight.

The king sized bed was comfortable.

There was a desk located at the end of the bed.

At the opposite side of the room was a chaise and a huge window.

Dining

The hotel has a bar in the middle of the lobby. It has a full menu from the restaurant located next to it. I chose not to eat in the hotel because there are so many other options in the city.

Mary Jane, the bartender suggested quite a few places for me to visit, which I appreciated.

Fitness

The Fitness Center was located on the Basement Level.

It included a pool, which was closed for cleaning on this day…

The size of the fitness center was perfect.

Final Word

This property met all of my needs.  The only drawback was the rival biker gang shooting at Ojos Locos across the street. I will more than likely stay here when I visit Albuquerque again.
