125 2nd St. NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87102, USA
Opened in 1939 by Conrad Hilton (who honeymooned here with Zsa Zsa Gabor), this glamorous 10-story hotel on the National Register of Historic Places was known as La Posada de Albuquerque until it was reinvented as a high-end boutique hotel in 2009. Its new name, Hotel Andaluz, and its dark, dramatic decor reflect the Moroccan and Spanish-colonial influences of the original Hilton design. Its Gold LEED certification reflects the hotel's commitment to eco-friendly practices. The hotel's two-story lobby is a wonderful spot to soak up the building's rich ambience, perhaps before grabbing cocktails in a secluded Casbah nook, the Euro-style Lobby Bar, or looking out on the mountains from the scene-heavy Ibiza bar.
