As "experience collectors" look toward their travel plans, a trip to Albuquerque's historic gem—Hotel Andaluz—is a must. The city’s only Four Diamond hotel breathes new life into one of the city's most historic buildings while offering travelers the opportunity to discover bustling downtown Albuquerque. Originally built by Conrad Hilton in the late 1930's as a Hilton Hotel, the recently renovated Hotel Andaluz seamlessly blends Moroccan and Spanish-inspired architecture with modern conveniences and environmental sustainability; it is the only hotel in the Southwest with a Gold LEED certification. Additionally, the property is on the historic registry. Making waves on the Albuquerque’s dining scene is the property’s restaurant, MÁS—Tapas y Vino, helmed by James Beard award nominee James Campbell Caruso. The hotel has won a number of awards, including the 2011 Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association’s Boutique Hotel of the year, 2012 Conde Nast Traveler’s Top Hotels in the World, 2013 AOL Traveler’s Top Innovative Green Hotels in the US and 2013 Conde Nast Travelers, Top 5 Hotels in the Southwest.
