Our new FAVORITE hotel in Albuquerque
And it is “new” in the literal sense of the word, as well as being new to us. Being open just a little more than several months, this boutique hotel is a real gem. It is located just off of Interstate 25, on Central Avenue, making it not only easily accessible to travelers but centrally located for those who want to do any extensive exploring in the area. The hotel was originally the Santa Fe Hospital; it has been lovingly rehabilitated, preserving many of the original elements of the structure as well as adding many modern (and expected by most travelers) features.
The Apothecary Lounge, on the top floor, is a great place for a drink and a “small plate” meal. The lounge has both indoor and outdoor seating and boasts “the best view” in the city. Based on the sunset we saw the evening we were there this, is not an empty boast.
We intend to return!

Excellent stay on our way West
Found this hotel on tripadvisor.com and although a shade above our usual price range it sounded very interesting. This is a renovated hospital building and I mean renovated from top to bottom and very tastefully done. Our experience was very positive starting with a pleasant call to Logan to make the reservation. Logan and all the staff we met were very pleasant and seemed happy to be working at the hotel. That’s always a good sign. The hotel is very unique and tastefully decorated. We selected the standard king sized bed room. It was slightly small but very well appointed and not a problem for a short stay. Nice sized bathroom with a big shower. Even had two of those plush bath robes you might see in the expensive hotels. The room also had a fridge, WIFI , large flat screen HD TV and a top of the line mattress.
After checking out the room we decided to go to the 4th floor/roof top lounge to see the sunset – wow what a great view. Les the friendly bartender made my wife two of the best drinks she has ever tasted. Plus he and our waitress Jade were so friendly and entertaining that we just ordered food and spent the evening there. In the morning we went to the nice breakfast room and the attendant also was pleasant and offered us warm quiche and fresh fruit along with other items. All in all this was a very pleasant hotel experience and well worth the cost. This is not your usual hotel. Give it a try and see for yourself.
