Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Andaluz
125 2nd St. NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87102, USA
Opened in 1939 by Conrad Hilton and now on the National Register of Historic Places, this impressive 10-story period structure is now an independently owned high-end boutique hotel. Its dark, dramatic decor reflects the Moroccan, Spanish, and Southwest Territorial influences of the original Hilton design. Its Gold LEED certification reflects the hotel's commitment to eco-friendly practices. The two-story lobby is a wonderful place to soak up the rich ambience, perhaps before grabbing cocktails in a secluded Casbah nook or heading upstairs to the scene-heavy Ibiza bar. Or dine at MÁS Tapas y Vino, where local ingredients inspire the traditional Spanish tapas and large plates, all prepared with a modern twist.
