This is three parks, connected by a railroad, that include a botanical garden, zoo, and aquarium. You need at least 5 hours to see it all. So plan accordingly. Get the train tickets. They are worth it if you plan to visit all three sites....More

Depends on whether a NM resident or not. $9 for a single attraction for adults $12.50 if not a NM resident for a single attraction.
how far is this hotel from the airport and are there buses from airport or to places around the hotel?

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.
I cannot find prices on any website and was wondering what they were like?
