Hotel Albuquerque




Hotel Albuquerque captures the distinctive blend of historic grandeur and contemporary comfort of Old Town Albuquerque, showcasing New Mexico style through a unique blend of Spanish, Mexican, Native American, and Western cultural influences reflected in the architecture, design, and cuisine. This landmark hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Old Town and boasts a romantic wedding chapel as well as more than 62,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space to accommodate weddings big and small. Say your vows in San Isidro de Capilla, the authentic early 19th century-style wedding chapel with wooden benches, white vaulted beamed wooden ceiling, massive walls, and deep-set windows. It boasts wooden chandeliers, hand plastered finishes, and an intricate carved and plastered sanctuary. The splendid Alvarado Ballroom also offers a breathtaking venue for your wedding. The ultimate expression of Southwest style and elegance, the Alvarado Ballroom features soaring 22-foot ceilings, hand-stamped tin chandeliers, hand-plastered walls, Navajo rug-style carpeting, and historic photographs of bygone eras in the Southwest. The Franciscan Ballroom offers a more intimate ambiance. A refined example of the Pueblo Deco period from the 1930s and 1940s in the Southwest, this ballroom evokes the feel of country clubs and bygone eras, featuring Native American-inspired geometric layered ceiling, custom-designed Two Grey Hills patterned carpet, hand-forged wall sconces shaped like thunderbirds, and large wooden chandeliers. For outdoor wedding, the gracefully landscaped outdoor events space – with its fountains, rose arbors, lawn courts, Spanish-style gardens and a Victorian-style pavilion - offers a multitude of options under the glittering sun.
