Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JJCWRS Always a Pleasure
If you have loyalty to IHG and have elite status, you receive an amazing complimentary breakfast in the café here. We always enjoy our stays here (stay at least once a month) and prefer the cabana rooms on the pool side. The tower rooms have views but also highway noise and I prefer to feel like I'm in a beautiful oasis as they've created in the courtyard. My only complaint is that we were asked to leave the pool area at 9pm, on a SATURDAY. We were told we could use the indoor pool next door, but I didn't come here to sit indoors. I specifically chose this hotel for the ambiance of the courtyard. After a long day it was so nice to sit and relax, but 9pm.. REALLY? So, giving an overall 4 stars for the early shut-down in the pool area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Befuddled Loved the bed, small bathroom
The room was comfortable all in all. The bathroom itself was so tiny I felt claustrophobic if I shut the door! The shower had decent water pressure though which was a great plus. I was hesitant to eat at the restaurant due to worried about high prices, but the food was really good and prices not as bad as I thought. There is not much to do within walking distance, and the neighborhood isn't the greatest.

Your Bar Staff is outstanding each and everyone of them. Having stayed at your hotel each yeasr for the NPSC they make me feel like a friend/family instead of a customer. Could not be better, thanks.

The location is not in the greatest area. Hotel is pretty inside, can definitely tell it is an older property being renovated. My room could definitely have been much cleaner, the doors and walls needed to be wiped down more, which my wife and I did ourselves.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DMG12345 Great stay for our anniversary!
We were celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary and decided to stay at the Crowne Plaza. The rooms were clean, the bed and pillows were comfortable, and we had a nice view of the city. We ate at the Rancher's Club for dinner- it was a great experience. We also ordered room service (breakfast)- the food was good, delivered on time, and it was definitely worth the money. We also liked the late check out time of 12. We will definitely stay there again!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kt75 Poor security
We were there for a wedding and had a few dozen rooms reserved (also had the wedding in the hotel). The hotel staff did a good job making sure everyone had a room located where they requested (ground floor, upper floors, facing the pool, etc.) and the rooms were nice and comfortable. On the second day we found that one of our parties rooms had been broken in to. All ID, credit cards, jewelry, and an empty suitcase were taken. They had entered through the patio door and exited through the inside hallway. This was done in the middle of the day with the housekeeping staff working up and down the halls. The front desk said the were very sorry but I feel like they showed very little concern and sent the "security" man to the room. I think he was also the maintenance man. He made a phone call to his boss who asked him who was on duty as security. He replied he was the only one there. The police were called and after talking with them it appeared that this was not an isolated incident. They had already been there the 2 previous evenings. They also said cars are broken into at that location quite often and advised us not to park on the one end of the hotel. I feel like this was done with the help of someone working there for them to be aware of when we were not in our rooms and for them to feel secure enough to go in and out of a room and not be questioned or noticed. Also we can see that the credit cards have been used in that area so it doesn't appear to be someone passing through. We were told the only security cameras were in the lobby. The hotel never asked if this person would feel safer in a different room but did change the key code and give us new keys for that room after we asked for them.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LakeDiamond Keep your valuables locked up
I made sure that when leaving our room, I put everything away. Our room was not messy. I left a gratuity for housekeeping each day. When packing for our trip home, I noticed a bag of souvenirs was missing. They were meant for our four year old who was not able to take the trip with us. This was the fourth known theft from a room (among those in our group) in the four nights we stayed in the hotel. I did not lock up the bag of souvenirs, so I know the hotel will do nothing. I hope management will address the theft problem among the staff. The bed was comfortable and the outdoor pool was nice.

Our experience at the hotel was frustrating. I can't say enough about the Stonestreet Cafe staff. They were very friendly and accommodating. However, my problem was with the theft that occurred from our room during our stay. I lost a bag of gifts that I had put away, out of view, but had not locked up. When I went to pack that bag, it was gone. It was the fourth known theft from a hotel room that weekend among people I knew that were also staying there. Lesson learned - lock everything up! It didn't matter that each day I made sure that I picked up and put everything away, out of sight, and also left a gratuity each day for the housekeeping staff.
A couple of suggestions to add: put a small refrigerator in each room because the meals offered in the cafe are very generous in size and it would be nice to enjoy the leftovers. Also, add a laundry room for guests to utilize.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by James705 No adequate parking, too much noise and one main elevator
Poor parking arrangements unless you spent additional money for valet parking. There was a convention where people drove to this location and parked which didn't allow for the nightly paying customer to park. We were told to park in the motel directly behind this hotel as they owned both. The subjects staying there were not the most upstanding people, if you know what I mean. We did not receive one offer of help to unload or to grab a cart in order to park this great distance away. There was no way I could allow my wife and two year old daughter to walk from that area alone. Even when staff watched as we pondered how to get our belongings to our room as my wife tried to carry our child, not one offer to help or any direction where to find a cart. But they were swarming customers who pulled into the driveway of the lobby thinking they were able to make money on valet parking. You would have thought Royality was here.

Thank you for making all of us feel welcome and taking such good care of us during my brothers retirement from the USAF. We reserved 4 rooms for 10 people and all of us were very pleased with all that you provided for all of the days and nights we were there. Thank you for the special room rates extended to us for the event too. This made it so that some of use could come who otherwise would not have been able to attend.

We were at Crowne Plaza for our granddaughter to compete in the Great Southwest Track and Field Meet. Because of a busy schedule, we weren't at the hotel often. However, we particularly found the housekeeper on the third floor to be very helpful and accommodating. And the hotel was convenient to the track stadium!

This was probably my 15th time staying at this exact hotel. I have stayed from one single night to 3 nights and even have paid for the very expensive 3 room suite on the 11th floor. As always I was impressed with the staff, the breakfast, and the atmosphere. Especially the room service. And as always I will recommend this hotel to anyone. No negatives really, only thing was that I did not receive a gift *(water or something) for being a Platinum Ambassador, but that's really not a big deal.

From the minute I walked in as a woman traveling on my own I was treated so well -
As a platinum member I was given a bottle of water at reception and given an excellent room and complimentary breakfast coupon.
My room was large, comfortable and very clean on a high floor.
I went to the bar at 9pm for a snack and the choice was both vast and affordable - the chicken wrap and sweet fries were delicious!
Breakfast was out of this world - a full menu in the restaurant and anything I wanted! Juice, Eggs Benedict which were fantastic, coffee and toast
I will most definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone who needs a place in this area

Brenda & Rachel (from the restaurant) were extremely helpful in recommending places to vist, eat, etc. Remarkable breakfast, the plates of food were overflowing - definitely worth the price. Your front desk staff (Shawna ?) were cheerful and eager to help. Both check in and check out were extremely easy - and yes we were recognized as Priority Club members. Although I have business options to choose other hotels, based on this last visit to your hotel,I will choose the same location when travelling to Albuquerque NM. thank you again, keep up the great work and let the staff there know how much at least one customer feels about your place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JHBlanche Home away from home
I literally live at this hotel 2 or 3 nights a week for 2 to 3 weeks a month. Have been doing this since September 2010. I've seen every aspect of this location and have built a relationship with the majority of the staff. I am a very seasoned traveler. I have spent my last 30 years on projects that take me away from home on extended stays. I will not tolerate an inept staff or a property that does not meet my standards. There are too many choices of places to stay. Loyalty to a brand or their points do not drive me. The staff and the hotel itself does.
The Crown Plaza in ABQ is by far the best property that I have ever stayed in for work and the staff is the best I have ever dealt with anywhere or anytime. Ocean Properties should be very proud of this gem in the desert.

I travel 250 days per year and the people on the stafff at the Albuquerque Crown Plaza went above and beyond.

They do Ocean Properties proud.

Wife and I in town for a night. the price and location were perfect for us to be able to explore some of Albuquerque, Clean rooms and the registration was fast and simple. The only issue we had was NO PARKING!! there was a very large reception going on and we had to park across the street on a different parking lot. there was a valet there i guess for the wedding party and charging a fee. Did not think that was right we had to pay to park. overall we would stay again.

This was my first time staying a Crowne Plaza. Even though the stay was over night, it was great, the price was awesome compared to some of the other hotels that I was looking at, and it was during Balloon Fiesta. The only thing that wasn't in the room that the other hotels that I've stayed in, was a microwave & refrigerator.
