Sandia Resort & Casino Review
On a bluff with sweeping views of the Sandia Mountains and Rio Grande Valley, this seven-story casino-resort sets a standard for luxury in Albuquerque; unfortunately the service here doesn't always quite match the promise. Nevertheless, appointments like 32-inch plasma TVs, handcrafted wooden furniture, louvered wooden blinds, and muted, natural-color palettes lend elegance to the spacious rooms. The 700-acre grounds, which are in the Far Northeast Heights, just across Interstate 25 from Balloon Fiesta Park, ensure privacy and quiet and include a superb golf course and an amphitheater that hosts top-of-the-line music and comedy acts. The Green Reed Spa offers a wide range of treatments, many using local clay and plants. One of the city's best restaurants, Bien Shur, occupies the casino's top floor, and there are three other places to eat on-site. The casino is open 24 hours.
