Book a stay at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Albuquerque and kick up your heels in this vibrant desert city. You'll soon be sampling spicy salsa in an Old Town restaurant and watching colorful hot-air balloons float across the horizon.
Head skyward on the Sandia Peak Tramway, a mountaintop cable car offering lovely views of Albuquerque after dark, when the lights of the city twinkle and glow below. Our Albuquerque hotels are near the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, which traces the city's early days in displays of silver Native American jewelry, Spanish colonial religious icons and iconic Southwestern landscapes by Ernest Blumenschein and Georgia O'Keeffe. Terracotta pottery and ceremonial dance shed light on contemporary Navajo life at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, near our hotels in Albuquerque.
From our hotels in Albuquerque, you're never far from the narrow, cobbled streets of Old Town, where the city was born two centuries ago. The Old Town Plaza is lined with adobe storefronts and casual restaurants tucked into nooks and passageways. Take your pick of green or red salsa at a patio cafe and dine on inexpensive Southwestern favorites like house-made enchiladas or mesquite-grilled chicken. Browse window displays of colorful kachina dolls and New Mexico landscapes at Old Town galleries. Look for good deals on silver and turquoise jewelry, hand-tooled leather belts and New Mexican spice mixes.
Stay at our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Albuquerque to experience the city's love affair with hot-air balloons. The cornflower-blue skies are filled with masses of colorful balloons in October during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the world's largest ballooning event. Any time of year, the history of hot-air ballooning is the focus at the city's Balloon Museum, with 19th-century wicker gondolas and Victorian parachutes on display.
The bed was and always is great when I stay at an IHG hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. This hotel location it ideal because it’s across the street from a gas station that is very good.[More] Furthermore, it’s close to I-25. I would stay here again![Less]

Comfortable Bed, convenient to I-40 and restaurants. Right next to Walmart and Sam's. Great Facility!
As it relates to my room and the service I received, everything was good. I don't have any issues. I did have one concern as it relates to the pet policy. When I booked my reservation, the website[More] indicated this facility did not allow pets, which was a good thing for me because my daughter has very bad allergies. However, the very night I checked in I see a person with a dog on a leash walking into the back door of the hotel. Additionally when I checked out the next morning, there was a family with a huge dog in a cage and a cat, on the elevator! Of course I was very confused. When I ask the front desk staff, she said, oh yes, we put a 250 deposit on them for clean-up. But that is not what the website shows, it says pets are not allowed. So I think the description of the facility should be factual, i.e. pets are allowed with a $250 deposit for clean-up.[Less]
Conveniently located just off I-40, Behind, WalMart/ Sams Club. Quiet even though it is adjacient to the freeway, secure parking with lighting, and security. Clean exercise room and indoor pool.[More] Short drive to shopping malls.[Less]
