This hotel was orginally built in the early 20th c. by native New Mexican Conrad Hilton and was at that time the tallest building in the city. It has been bought and sold many times, the latest by a local business man who had the hotel totally redesigned and renamed as the Andaluz (after the region in Southern Spain) and reopened in 2009....And it is gorgeous! The entire downstairs lobby is totally beautiful and worth a visit even if you're not staying there! We had a suite, with a living room, bedroom and bathroom (and for less than $200!). Service was outstanding and extremely professional and friendly to boot. And of course, its downtown location makes it easy for guests to visit the city. There is an affiliated restaurant (Lucia's) within the hotel building.The only small drawback is that there is no free parking although there is plenty of valet parking available at a reasonable cost.
In sum, both my wife and I loved our stay in the Andaluz and we hope to come back.
