Albuquerque's Hotel Andaluz Celebrates History of Southwest Class

Albuquerque’s AAA Four Diamond Hotel Andaluz may be 75 years old as of June 2014, but there are plenty of new developments to enjoy at this historic downtown boutique property.

The hotel’s new restaurant Más features Spanish tapas and wine, as well as a full menu developed by noted chef James Campbell Caruso, who has been nominated eight times for the James Beard Award for Best Chef of the Southwest. Diners may sit in the new dining room with its communal table and white-linen tables, or secret away to one of the lobby’s six cozy nooks called "casbahs," which seat up to 10 each.

Hotel Andaluz’s Ibiza rooftop bar affords sweeping views of the Sandía Mountains and features contemporary water and fire elements, making for a perfect Albuquerque night - whether you’re staying here or just visiting this historic landmark. Outdoor dining is available at Ibiza, as well.

Built in 1939, Hotel Andaluz plays an important role in Albuquerque’s history. Constructed by New Mexican Conrad Hilton of Hilton Hotel fame, the then-Hilton Hotel was New Mexico’s tallest building at the time. It was also the first building in New Mexico to have air conditioning and the first to have an elevator.

This was only Hilton’s fourth hotel in the nation. Hilton and Zsa Zsa Gabor spent their honeymoon here in 1942, and guests may rent that penthouse suite for themselves. The property became La Posada de Albuquerque in 1984, and was sold, renovated and reopened as Hotel Andaluz in 2009. The building is, in fact, on the National Register of Historic Places.

Hote Andaluz offers 107 rooms above an impressive two-story open-air lobby that's lined with intimate, arched sitting rooms. Rooms are stylish modern lofts with down comforters on king- or queen-sized beds, contemporary art and writing desks.

“Smart technology” turns on or off heat, air conditioning and lighting as guests enter or leave the room. Solar panels on the hotel’s roof heat 60% of the hotel’s water, and an extensive recycling program is practiced here. It is one of only two hotels in the country that is both on the Historic Registry and has a Gold LEED Certification.

In the lobby, fountains, orchids and colored lighting set the mood against Southwestern and Spanish design elements such as vigas ("beams"), leather furniture, hand-carved accents and tile and ironwork reminiscent of the Spanish Andaluz region, from which the property takes its name. Original murals depicting scenes from New Mexico’s history painted in the 1930s grace the entryways.

To celebrate its 75th anniversary, Hotel Andaluz is offering $75 off selected room rates and free cocktails of the month through the end of June 2014. Visit the hotel's website for more details.
