The Hotel Andaluz Story

We are proud of our work in restoring the Hotel Andaluz to its former glory. Placed on The National Register of Historic Places in 1984, the hotel was meticulously restored and updated by us using cutting edge technology and an eye to bringing new life to one of the Southwest’s iconic buildings.

The Origin of the Name of "Andaluz"

andaluz icon
Andaluz – short for Andalucian – evokes the passion and pride of the region of Spain that has inspired the hotel’s décor and architectural style. The four interlocking A’s of the logo reflect an adaptation of classic Andalucian tile. Look for the logo in the traditional Andalucian arch that graces the hotel’s public spaces.

Our Rich History

Hotel Andaluz has a rich history in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. Only the fourth hotel ever built by Conrad Hilton, Hotel Andaluz was returned to its former glory in 2008 by current owner Gary Goodman.
