Fodor's Expert Review Böttger Mansion of Old Town

110 San Felipe St. NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87104, USA

A National Register property built in 1912 in the American Foursquare style, Böttger Mansion offers thoughtfully refurbished rooms incorporating fine woodwork and other period details—a claw-foot tub, a lovely mural by the original owner's grandson, or a pressed-tin ceiling. The rooms are calm and classic, if a bit overstuffed. Each is dedicated to a person of particular import to Albuquerque history, from Erna Fergusson to Clyde Tingley, and they all have the freshest linens and terry robes. The Wine Cellar Suite has a kitchenette and can accommodate up to six guests. A grassy courtyard provides an instant escape from the Old Town crowds. The two-course breakfast might include stuffed French toast or a cheese soufflé.
