A stylish, contemporary hotel that's close to area attractions.
On the north side of town, this distinctive Marriott is shaped, rather oddly, like an Aztec pyramid or ziggurat—it rises ten stories and its rooms open onto a towering, light-filled atrium-lobby. The Marriott is well-situated, just off I-25. It's one of the closest major hotels in town to Santa Fe, and it's a short drive from the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway, the Petroglyphs National Monument and the Balloon Fiesta Park and its new balloon museum. Keep in mind that the hotel fills up fast during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. The decor of the rooms recalls Mediterranean villa, with bright red and gold fabrics, dark-wood armoires and tables, pale-yellow walls, and beds with down comforters and plush linens and pillows. Of the 310 rooms, 54 are suites with separate sitting rooms, refrigerators, and extra room to spread out. All units have high-speed Internet.
