Historic Hotel

Arguably the oldest hotel corner in America, dating back to the Spaniard foundation in 1607, it boasts rich history and atmosphere. With its expansive 400 year history, it was the go-to lodging among trappers, soldiers, gold-seekers, gamblers and politicians. During the Civil War, New Mexico statehood and railroad expansion, the hotel structure changed and developed over time while still maintaining some key architectural elements. In 1922, it received its first modern iteration despite the changing owners. When it was leased to Fred Harvey, he turned it to one of his Harvey House gems until 1968. During that time, it was a vital piece in the puzzle of turning the wild west into a more progressive and inclusive region to women and people of color.

A report of a guests says that he was hearing footsteps late into the night and he complained to the front desk.
