Rated 5 out of 5 by AlecM Comfortable, Attractive, very good value close to ABQ airport
I've stayed at the Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel twice already - in both cases got a room at a good rate.
Room is comfortable, large, elegant and up-to-date, with very comfortable bed.
Restaurant in lobby is good - and open until 11 pm - which is great for us travelers coming in late. (There are also other food options such as in-room dining which I *believe* are around-the-clock.)
Staff is very professional and appropriately friendly - from the airport shuttle driver through to reception. A customer-focused approach is obviously maintained.
Excellent/ frequent shuttle service.
Doubt I'll stay anyplace else when I need to fly out early from ABQ.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DaveB73 This Hotel needs to improve Check-In!
Our room was booked weeks in advance, but was not available till 4:50 pm. Our check in time was 3:00 pm. Almost 2 hours sitting in the lobby would not be consistent with the "Starwood Preferred Guest" motto!
Our experience was unsatisfactory and we'll not stay with you again! If we cannot get into the Sheraton uptown location, we'll stay at another hotel who does value a "preferred guest!"

Rated 3 out of 5 by stacia26 Room's ventilation had problems
Rooms 1401 and 1403 both had heating / air flow issues. We called the maintenance person and he did what he could - however, it didn't help. The air blew continuously and it blew cool air. 1401 had her heat up to 85 degrees and it was very cool in her room. We tried and tried to adjust to different levels hotter/cooler but there was no difference. In 1403 we just shut the power off - it was better than the cool air blowing continuously. We spoke to the person at the desk in the morning as well.
The rooms themselves were nice and they were clean. No problems there. The restaurant staff were great! We had Nina as our server at supper - she was fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MLT23 Exceptional Stay in Albuquerque
I was blown away by the hospitality and comfort of this hotel. I got emails from the hotel & concierge a week before my stay asking if they could do anything for me before my arrival. NOT your typical airport hotel, The people were over-the-top friendly, accomodating and helpful. I never heard a plane.It was quiet and very clean inside and on the grounds. This hotel is literally 3 minutes from the check-in drop off. I did not expect this kind of property, hospitality and incredible attitude from a hotel and staff located right at the airport. We will make a point of staying here from now on. They get 5 stars in my book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DownhillSkier Bed Linens / Hotel Restaurant
Overall the hotel is great and we will probably return.
However, the bed linens were so stiff they made noise every time we moved! And the mattress was a little on the hard side. So needless to say, our nights sleep wasn't so good.
The service in the hotel restaurant was a bit slow. My meal had mushrooms which I specifically told them to take out. The waiter said the Pesto wasn't any good and told my sister-in-law they'd make it without the Pesto. When the food did come my husband's wasn't there - the chef had dropped his hamburger on the floor and had to re-make it!!! They food was good - just getting it was a chore.

Cynthia at the front desk was very helpful with me as I tried to understand the computer to get a boarding pass and check my emails. She was patient and kind. The female in the restaurant on September 1 was also very helpful regarding materials to help us pack our bags for the plane. The upgrade to the top level was definitely worth the extra money as the appetizers and breakfast were just right. Thanks for making our stay so pleasant. Also, loved the pool! Also the shuttle drivers were very polite and engaging.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sashasmom nice stay, but...
Our recent stay started off great and I honestly would have rated higher EXCEPT for my discovery of the incredibly filthy bathtub drain when preparing for my night's shower after a 8-hour road trip...tub draining very slow...saw floating hair in water...looked in drain and pulled out a golf ball sized wad of hair PLUS a button, 2 disposable razor blade shields, and bath soap wrapper...which made me wonder about the housekeeping staff's attention as well as whoever inspected and passed the room...I find it hard to believe they would've not noticed the slow drain and bothered to check for the reason. Disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KarenS Just what we needed!
We were in the area for a trip into Santa Fe. Since our flight was leaving from Albequerque we decided to stay the last night near the airport choosing Sheraton simply because it was so close (walking distance to airport). We were very pleased! The hotel was very clean, tasteful modern decor, very nice bathroom area, comfortable bed with quality linens,air quality was great, hotel staff was very friendly, check in was a breeze, room rate was reasonable. We ordeded room service..food was very good and reasonably priced. Even though the airport was walking distance we decided to take complimentary shuttle on which the driver was so nice and pleasant! Would stay there again..

Rated 3 out of 5 by Re41 Paid for what I didn't get
I paid for club level which places you on the top floor. It was past 3, when check in was and there was no room available. I was placed on 7th floor with access to the 15th floor. I was disappointed and since I arrived to the hotel at 10:30 am I just wanted to get in and take a shower after traveling all night to get there.
After the first day they cleaned my room but I was clearly out of shampoo & conditioner and I had to track the lady down to get more. In other instances they are pretty good with replacing them. Rooms were comfortable, air conditioner starts to put out dry air overnight. Me and my room mate woke up in sweats every night. Not sure what the deal is there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kallman Great under pressure
The NCAA tournament was in Albuquerque and the Hotel was busy and bustling. I was recognized as an SPG member at check in and the process was a breeze with the little details taken care of with the two rooms I had reserved. The new rooms are nicely laid out with a work area and an easy to use internet. I was on the club level and the hospitality we received was fantastic. When the airport was shut down the Sunday of our departure that’s when the staff really shined! The hotel is extremely convenient to the airport and we could monitor the situation easily and the staff was excellent at meeting our needs. Bad weather, tested and tired travelers the staff performed magnificently.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Katrina Horrible Employee!
We stayed in this hotel overnight in December. When we arrived, after having been traveling for over 10 hours, we were assaulted by an angry worker who yelled at us for trying to use the luggage cart. He continued to yell at us until we took our luggage off. He then yelled across the lobby at the employee who checked us in. Then he yelled at us that he wanted to "help" us take our luggage upstairs. We've stayed in Sheratons all across the world and have NEVER been treated so badly. I turned in the comment card with all of my information, and the hotel never contacted me. We will NEVER stay there again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by joyce910 Excellent staff service
I recently stayed at the Sunport Sheraton.
I was quite anxious about how our two big dogs in crates would be welcomed. The desk manager, room captain and staff were terrific. They allowed the dogs to walk about the hotel and handled the unwieldy crates with ease then arranged for approprite transportation to the airport at 4:30 am the following morning.We dealt with four different men and they were friendly and helpful. Check in and out was efficient, fast and friendly. I compliment you on your staff. I will certainly stay at this hotle if the occasion arises again

Rated 4 out of 5 by SSusan Love the hotel, breakfast was a problem
The hotel is clean and we felt well taken care of until breakfast. After having to tell someone that our order hadn't been taken we received luke warm coffee, and the "warm ups" were also luke warm. My husband asked for no butter on his pancakes, he got butter. Syrup was served cold. I ordered fruit, yogurt and granola parfait and a side of hash browns. There was no granola in the parfait and I didn't recieve any hash browns. We also noticed that there was a buffet in the back room after we'd ordered. Wish someone had mentioned that, we could have picked our own meal and avoided all the problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DHSF Rojo Grill
1) Some of the waitstaff are a little too gushy, but then at the same time oddly inattentive after the order is taken...no checking on water, drinks, asking about whether coffee is wanted, etc.
2) The morning of check-out I was counting on breakfast beginning at the announced time of 6 a.m., but while the chef had arrived there were no waitstaff. The front desk tried to make it possible for me to breakfast on the 15th floor, but the card was not read by the elevator...by the time all of that happened, it was too late to go back and try again. This was an unusual occurrence, but still irritating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Judy10 good dog friendly choice
On a long road trip, we searched for a comfortable dog friendly hotel with plenty of green grass (to walk the dog). We selected this hotel because it was so close to I 25 (and 40). We never heard one airplane take off during our stay. Our only disappointment was that our room was close to the elevator ( specifically asked to be away from the elevator) and we could hear the ding ding each time it stopped on our floor. Also we ended up with an adjoining room door and we could hear every word spoken by the guests next door. Otherwise, the stay was very pleasant and would definitely stay again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FBT2014 Service needs attention
This hotel is very nice but while I stayed there for a week I began to notice some flaws, not in the room (very nice and comfortable). but the attitude of the wait staff in the restaurant was less than friendly. I found that the staff in the restaurant were rude, unfriendly and seemed unhappy in their jobs and they took their dislike of the jobs out on me and others. My first 2 nights I ordered room service and greeted by a very nice waiter who made me feel very welcome and provided me with excellent service. Other staff were equally friendly. But, I would talk to those restaurant staff.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DN2003 Bad stay
I contacted customer service last night about my stay but was cut off. I had many problems with my visit. The room was freezing in spite of setting the thermostat to 82 degrees. I was told by the front desk that a water bottle would be sent to my room right away. It didn't get there til check out. And, my wake up call for 5 AM so I could catch my flight didn't happen. Instead, a hotel employee knocked very loudly on my door at 5:25.
Overall, I rate this a poor hotel stay. I would have contacted management, but even the shuttle to the airport was late, and just " shmoozing" with staff while guests were anxiously waiting to get to the airport in time for one of the busiest flying times of the season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DR99 A culture of excellent service
I recently stayed the Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel and was pleasantly surprised but the extraordinary service I received. Every member of the staff I encountered -- from the front desk, to the restaurant, to the airport shuttle -- was genuinely friendly and thoughtful. They were clearly committed to meeting (and even anticipating) the wants and needs of hotel guests. Kudos to the management for creating such a culture of fine service. Throughout the year, I stay at several business hotels across country and I have to say the Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel was a real standout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Larapoy Great stay, great product
My family stayed at the SAAH after a trip to Santa Fe; we had an early flight out and thought it would be easier to stay near the airport.
I was pleasantly surprised by the overall physical product of the SAAH, the rooms are well appointed, the staff very friendly, restaurnat was "ok" but overall our stay was better than I had expected it would be.
We swam in the pool, had cocktails in the bar, had hors d'oeuvres in the club lounge and ordered dinner in the restaurant.
I would definitely recommend this property as a lovely, clean, pleasant hotel extremely convenient to the ABQ airport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adrian923 Convenient and Tasteful in Albuquerque
I stay in this hotel every August for a meeting, and it gets better every year. It's very convenient to the airport, the pool is great, the rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated and the staff is friendly. The only downside is the buffet breakfast in the restaurant is only OK. And on my last stay I also noticed that the wall between my room and my neighbor was not sound proofed well at all. I could hear quite clearly, the conversations of the family, plus a baby's crying was rather loud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JessLuz This hotel is very nice!
We had a great time we went for our annual convention for Jehovah's Witnesses. This was our first time assigned to Albq, NM, so it was a new experience. We have stayed in other Sheratons in the past and knew we would not regret picking this hotel. It was a great experience and had lots of fun! Looking forward to next year!

Rated 3 out of 5 by psunshine My Disappointments in this hotel
I found the hotel online, and friends had actually recommended it as I needed to be near the airport for an early flight. I was never told that we would be charged $5!! for parking. And I had never been told that we would be charged for internet usage!! We would have found another place if we had been told. A positive thing was that they did have computers in the lobby area to use.....but with limited time allowance.

We checked in late in the afternoon of our checkin date. We were very tired and took a short nap before starting out to our next engagement. This is when we found the tub having poor drainage. The next morning was the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Leigh42 Great, just a couple areas for improvement
The hotel is great, rooms are very clean, bedding is ultra comfy, and it's very quiet. Just a couple of suggestions for improvement. One, I checked in at 5, and rooms still were not fully cleaned. Even when full, can't the housekeeping staff start earlier? Second, I was with a group, and box lunches during our meeting were practically inedible, grandmas brand cookies, mushy apples, and mediocre wraps with too much mayo and limp lettuce. The names of the different options were misleading too, what kind of lunch am I getting when it's called "Casino" or "Duke City? No idea.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jb6785 needs help
Checked in as SPG platinum guest, told I could use high speed internet and would not be changed.... at check out I was charged for internet..... Thought bill was final until received email update this morning with a charge for a bottle of water. This is one of the free bottles in the room which clearly says "free for our Starwood Preferred Guest." I had to take the time to call and get that taken off the bill. I like this hotel for many reasons but having to go over your bill with a fine tooth comb to catch all the mistakes is not something that should have to be done.

I was promptly greeted by the front desk lady and the bellman. Both were kind and helpful. I was traveling with a new dog and the bellman was very assisting in getting me into my room with no hassle. The room was an 'accessible' type room, but was very comfortable. I have noticed that when I use my SPG points , these are the rooms offered. I don't know why. All in all, a very nice hotel with a good staff, i spoke with the lady washing the lobby floor at 430am and she was a happy camper . If Corp. Sheraton keeps their employees happy I would be glad to stay here again. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Me20013 Unexpected Luxury
I had to book a hotel near the airport for a very early flight the next morning. A colleague recommended the Sheraton as it was close to the airport. I was expecting the typical small basic room with an open closet and sticky floor. I was very pleasantly surprised to find a recently renovated hotel that was exquisitely appointed (Dark hardwood floors in the entrance, built in closets, marble and tile bathroom). The bed was one of the best I have slept in recently. And the staff were all perfect. It also had a restaurant that had wide food (and seating) choices.

This Sheraton got most of the basics right. Room/ bed/ service/ decor/ amenities were familiar and up to spec.
HOWEVER, there were two things:
-The pool was closed for the season. The SPG Club too. Short of an indoor pool, maybe an indoor hot tub would do?
-I had two salads, neither adequate.
At dinner, I asked my server, but the recommended Salmon Salad featured dry, overcooked fish and a super gloppy, over dressed salad. Yuck.
For lunch the next day, I had a good chicken sandwich, but side salad was the sort of Iceberg generic that is just 'Too Denny's' for a Sheraton.
I have stayed in a half a dozen Sheratons for almost 100 nights, so I hope I know what to expect. These two areas need some work, but I think they could be addressed.
