Plaza Hotel

230 Old Town Plaza, Las Vegas, New Mexico, 87701, United States

Rooms at this three-story Italianate hotel, which has hosted the likes of Doc Holliday and Jesse James, balance the old and the new—they're not overly fancy, but they've been handsomely renovated with high-quality linens, and they've got plenty of space, painted molding, high stamped-tin ceilings, and a sprinkling of charming antiques. Each room also has a modern bath, coffeemaker, and flat-screen TV, with microwaves and refrigerators available on request; and a full breakfast is included. About half the rooms are in the adjacent and similarly historic and also Italianate Ilfeld Building. The old-world ambience carries through to the hotel's Landmark Grill, which serves tried-and-true American (shrimp cocktail, Cobb salad, filet mignon), with a few New Mexican specialties thrown in. Be sure to enjoy a drink, or perhaps even an after-dinner cigar, at the adjacent Byron T.'s Saloon, with its tall windows overlooking the plaza.
