New Mexico’s 100th birthday
As we celebrate New Mexico’s 100th birthday, it’s fun to look back on the incredible history of our own hotel. Built in 1939 by famous hotelier Conrad Hilton, this space has been host to historic events, home to many a celebrity and the site of countless weddings and other special occasions.
Did you know Conrad Hilton and Zsa Zsa Gabor honeymooned here? Their marriage only lasted a few years, but their legacy lives on. Our premier suite is named after the famed starlet.
Of course, Hilton and Gabor aren’t the only celebrities to grace us with their presence. Over the years, we’ve hosted a number of big name stars. Unfortunately, we can’t name drop as much as we’d like to, but you never know who you might seeing crossing the lobby! Keep an eye out.
Of course, it’s not just big stars we take care of here. For decades, couples have looked to our beautiful downtown hotel to host one of the biggest days of their lives: their weddings. Generations of couples have held ceremonies and receptions throughout our hotel, marking their special day in one of ABQ’s most historic buildings.
Happy birthday, New Mexico. We’re happy to be part of it. Here’s to 100 more!
