The botanical garden was wonderful! Very beautiful and varied gardens. Peaceful, interesting and fun. There's even a model railroad in one area for the kids and the "kid" in adults. It was a cool surprise and the best thing in Albuquerque.

I'm sure it depends on what time of the year you visit, but when we went, there were so many beautiful flowers. The grounds are very well maintained, and fun to visit.

There is not a hotel at the botanical gardens. So, not sure what hotel you're talking about, but Albuquerque does have a pretty good bus system.
