“Best Hotel for Balloon Fiesta!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

I have stayed here two years in a row for balloon fiesta and I can't compliment the staff highly enough. I had an issue on check-in (mine) that Savannah worked with me to resolve in the most gracious and professional manner.

If you are going to the early morning balloon ascensions they make up paper sacks for everyone with juice, granola bar and fruit. They also kept the concierge lounge open all weekend during the fiesta.

The location is the best - about 2 miles away and accessible to the ground without getting on the freeway. Only place I would stay for Balloon Fiesta - and if I came to Albuquerque for anything else.

Room Tip: North Side faces the balloon ground

We stayed here during the balloon fiesta for 2 nights. The location is ideal for the Fiesta. The staff was outstanding and extremely helpful. The rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. This was our 3rd yr in Albuquerque for this event and 1st year at the Marriott.....it's worth the extra money. Plus, the green chili mac and cheese was fabulous!

I stayed at the hotel for a meeting during Balloon Fiesta. The staff are outstanding ... extremely accommodating, and their banquet food is excellent. The guestroom had a strange configuration, but was spacious and looked to be newly renovated. The bed was VERY comfortable, which is hard to find these days. The road noise is the only real problem I encountered. That said, I'd certainly consider staying again.

Room Tip: Unless you are stuck on seeing a view of Sandia Peak from your room, ask to stay on the other side o...

We stayed here on a Balloon Fiesta weekend when the whole town raises their prices, so it's understandable. I appreciated the expanded room layout, the mini kitchen area, and the long vanity. We found the location to be ideal, with a Starbuck and Cracker Barrel in close proximity. I tend to get up very early and my husband sleeps in. This was next to impossible since the vanity was across from the bed and the lights blinded the poor guy! The road noise was a little loud at times and the slamming doors down the hall were annoying, but the room was isolated from all other noises.

Excellent staff! The front desk, restaurant and bar staffs are the very best. Spent a week at this hotel and always found the room to be clean with no issues experienced during my stay. Good access to Route 25 and there are plenty of restaurants in the area. Getting around Albuquerque is easy and you are only 20 minutes from downtown, about 10 minutes from the Tram, and just a few blocks from the Balloon Museum. The only quirk is the availability of 2 small elevators that also double as the service elevators. Wait times for an elevator can be lengthy when compared to other hotels. The onsite restaurant is a bit pricey, which is typical for a hotel. The food quality is good. The bar is also a bit pricey, $6 draft for a Blue Moon (paying for convenience). Overall it was a pleasant experience.

Room Tip: If you like BBQ, there is a County Line restaurant near the Tram. This County LIne in Albuquerque i...

We stayed here in one of the suites after a long day of getting married. The room was clean and comfortable, though the bathroom was a bit small for me. The bed was probably the best hotel bed I've ever slept in... and I use a tempur pedic at home. Very quiet stay even on a Saturday night. The atmosphere is inviting and easy to relax in... especially with the sound of the waterfall. The restaurant is really good with a good selection. Try the home made fries and portabello mushroom sandwich. The waitress was a newbie but did a great job. The gift shop staff was really nice too. I used the bell hop checking out and was impressed with the prompt service. The reason I didn't give this place a higher vote is because it feels a bit dated... could use some updating. I have to be clear though. When I say dated I don't mean dirty... the place was clean. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay here again.

We are Mariott people. That being said, I thought that this particular Mariott was good but not great. The rooms are a nice size but they are dark and need better lighting as well as some updating. The beds are comfortable and the pillows are very good ones which made for a great night sleep. The Parking Lot needs to be repaved and can be dangerous if you are not paying attention to where you are walking. They have a nice area downstairs by the bar but since we were on the Concierge Level we did not use it but we saw many people sitting downstairs. The location is great because it is off a major highway. Overall OK, with a little sprucing up it would be very good.
