Great views and upscale amenities draw business and leisure travelers to this uptown hotel.
A departure from the majority of the city's major business hotels, the Albuquerque Marriott is in the uptown neighborhood on the east side of the city, close to the Coronado and Winrock shopping malls and a number of other shopping, dining and office centers. With no other tall buildings around it, this seventeen-story high-rise enjoys unsurpassed views of the Sandia Mountains to the east and miles of desert, mesas and mountains to the west. Already a comfortable property with attractive rooms, the Marriott underwent a major top-to-bottom overhaul, and the 411 rooms and suites are looking snazzier than ever, with super-plush new beds and linens and such in-room perks as high-speed Internet, two phones with voice mail and coffeemakers. The 16,000 square feet of meeting space was also redone. An indoor-outdoor pool provides recreation year-round, as does the well-equipped gym.
