Photo Comment:  The Google Aerial photo shows the DoubleTree Hotel circled in yellow.  The railroad runs along the red line at the bottom of this picture.  Thanks to shorter buildings between the hotel and the railroad, you should have a good view of passing trains.  Higher floor rooms will be better in this hotel.  This hotel is located 5-long blocks from the Albuquerque Amtrak / Rail Runner train station.  While most people can walk to/from the station with ease, it’s just a bit further than we recommend, especially if you have luggage or inclement weather is present.
