“Incredible Value for a Historic Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The Plaza is not your cookie cutter chain hotel. Everything in it suggests another era. We stayed here on our honeymoon almost 29 years ago and have stayed here off and on since then. They have continued to improve. When we arrived here recently on a Friday night the downstairs bar was hopping with live music. The desk clerk moved us up another floor away from the noise. The room was lovely and old fashioned. In the morning the free breakfast is ordered off a menu and served in the restaurant. It was delicious.

As others have pointed out, this hotel has been in receivership for some time. I applaud them for keeping it open at all. The lobby lacks the charm of past visits, but our room was as it had always been---spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable w/ a lovely view of the plaza. Service has always been dicey at best of times, and no change there--there doesn't seem to be a motivated work force available in town. Dinner at the Landmark wasn't particularly good, but given that we were one of two tables, the hotel is in a lame duck management before new owner takes over, and it's Las Vegas NM, expectations were low. Breakfast on the other hand, was free and delicious. It was a little annoying to watch the waitress seated and screwing w/her iPhone, but it tells you everything you need to know that she wasn't upbraided for this, b'c the seeming hotel mgr was sitting in the lobby doing the same.... Can't wait for the new owner to get his hand in here, and hope he keeps it an affordable, laid-back, pet-friendly place.

Room Tip: Overlooking the plaza, of course

It is a historic hotel and it has a lot of atmosphere. Therefore I'll be graceful with criticism. One thing I have to mention: They rent out a room to two adults that has only one bedside table. And this wasn't historic, only a bit shabby. A second one of these wouldn't hurt. Otherwise I was happy: very friendly staff, OK breakfast and, as I said, loads of atmosphere.

We have always loved the plaza hotel. We have stayed there quite a few times and was always lovely, However recently we tried staying there and first we got a room with a very strong smell of pine sol so we changed our rooms. It started out great, And then we found a bug, but we didnt realize it was a bed bug at first. We ordered room service and ate dinner, not giving it another thought, until the bugs started appearing again. We called down to the front desk and the guy, Sean at the front desk mentioned that they could change our room again or they could change the sheets and even said that the bugs may be the cause of a recent large amount of rain. So anyway, after we called him we looked them up online and found the excact bugs we had in our room- Bedbugs!!! wondering if the pine sol smell was there way of trying to clean and get rid of them, but giving the housekeeping it doesnt look like they clean too well anyway seeing how a pair of womens sandals were still under the bed. we left and got another hotel pronto! Would not recommend staying there unless it is positive they have cleaned and gotten rid of them for good. Stayed June 4th 2014

My mother and I spent the weekend in Las Vegas, NM just for fun and stayed one night here. The staff was most accommodating and friendly and treated us like V.I.P.s! The room was spacious and beautiful! I'd stayed in the old part of the hotel before and this time got one of the new rooms. They kept the sense of the original hotel in the decor and space. Our in-room coffee maker didn't have a basket for the filter, so we called down to the front desk and they sent up an entire decanter of coffee from the dining room! The price is very reasonable for the lovely accommodations, too! Our room looked out over the plaza, which was just beautiful! The hotel is within walking distance of the historical districts of the city and the architecture is amazing in that area. The buildings are old and you really get the sense of going back in time. We will definitely be going back, only this time, I may never leave the hotel, it's really that great.

Room Tip: If you want to try an experience the "spirit" of the hotel, and don't mind what goes b...

I stayed for 3 nights with my friend to attend the Historical Society of New Mexico Convention. The Hotel was filled to capacity, so the delightful free breakfast was a bit difficult due to everyone wanting to get to the programs at 8:00 am. The staff was overworked then, but still managed to get everyone served. Yes, they ran out of one or two items on the menu, but there were still plenty of good breakfasts to choose from (AND THEY ARE FREE HOT BREAKFASTS- so stop complaining).
The room was on the second floor (the "new" wing) and faced a brick wall. Nonetheless, it was charming, comfortable and roomy enough for the two of us gals. We also saw the Biker group at the bar. They rode the most beautiful Harleys I have ever seen and they were all immaculate showpieces. The Bikers were all very friendly, and although the group was a bit noisy on the outside patio, they were no noisier than us convention goers in the bar.
The hotel is right on the historic Plaza and walking distance to most of the interesting sites and NM Highland University. This is not a modern hotel, so if you do not want to enjoy idiosyncratic service and a mix of cultures, you should go to a motel chain.
The Plaza did an outstanding job serving the 350 guests at the Convention Banquet- prime rib with all the trimmings and delicious carrot cake for dessert.
The Plaza Hotel is a unique experience and a good way to start an exploration of New Mexico history.

Room Tip: I am told that the rooms facing the Plaza can be noisy, but you have the view. I stayed on the seco...

I highly recommend the Historic Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas to anyone and everyone. It is one of the cutest old time Hotels I have seen in a very long time. The rooms are spacious and decorated with antiques and I don't think any rooms are identical to one another. Our room was spacious, comfortable and so very charming.

The staff was AMAZING!! Myckle checked us in dressed in clothing just like the friendly Ghost that supposedly haunts the hotel. He told us some of the ghost stories and made it very fun! Although we never saw any of the ghosts that are said to live there it was alot of fun. They made us feel like we were the only guests in the entire hotel. Sitting outside in the late evening enjoying a cocktail our sever noticed my mother in law was cold. A few moments later one of the staff came outside to bring her a blanket. The next day we were given a wonderful tour of the hotel by the most delightful young man. The restaurant on the property is very reasonably priced and the food was great! I want to make a trip again just to stay at this Hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the suites that has a separate living area and very large bedrooms, but we saw a...
