Albuquerque, New Mexico is a destination where exploration is the rule, and you need a more than comfortable launch pad to get the most out of your tours. These five hotels and resorts put a unique spin on a premium lodging experience.
1. Andalusian hotel
Hotel Andaluz was originally built in 1939 and has a historical designation. Right in the center of Andaluz is both a unique hotel and a springboard in all directions. The cozy rooms give an impression of a luxury hotel from the thirties. The lobby has a large bar and lounge that offers entertainment on weekends. The area has adjoining private casbahs where you can be in the middle of the action but have an intimate conversation. One of the most unique welcome areas and lobbies ever. The MAS restaurant focuses on New Mexican and Spanish themed cuisine, while the second-floor IBIZA lounge offers outdoor seating with city views and an indoor lounge.
2. Sandia Resort & Casino
Located just on the north side of town, the Sandia Resort & Casino has it all if you’re staying on the north side of town. The massive exterior gives no indication of the unique and spacious interior rooms and details. The best room choice is the suites overlooking Sandia Peak, as both sunrises and sunsets get light play. The Green Reed spa has expanded in treatments and even more atmosphere because it has its own building. There are eight restaurants and five bars for dining and libations. Bien Shur’s rooftop hosts regular entertainment and offers great views over fine dining. One of the best golf courses in New Mexico adds to the offerings.
3. Hotel Chaco
If you want to be on the edge of the old town, Hotel Chaco is the best choice. The well-appointed, luxurious interior can best be described as modern New Mexico. Wellness and fitness are at a higher level at Chaco with a spacious gym, Spa Chaco and yoga equipment. The best mega-expanded room option is the Deluxe King Suite, at 60 square feet, it has everything you need and more with a specialized reading chair, executive work space, and over-sized shower.

4. Los Poblanos Farm and Hotel
This boutique hotel has only 45 rooms and they have kept it exclusive because guests want to experience the farm and natural habit and relax with less activity. The limited rooms have thoughtful design features and luxurious amenities such as premium bedding and bathrobes from Coyuchi Organic. And of course, since lavender is the main organic crop, a large number of handmade lavender products. Designed in 1932 and completed shortly after, Los Poblanos retains its original charm and vision while incorporating modern conveniences throughout the property.
5. Island resort and casino
Better than comfortable, with the added appeal of a small concert venue, Isleta is a great starting point in the southeast corner of Albuquerque. While the rooms are well appointed, the real difference is the good hospitality and customer service. The pool goes from inside to outside, so no matter what the weather, a comfortable swim awaits. And without going off site, they have a much better than average golf course. The casino is adjacent to the resort and therefore noise does not affect the guest experience at the resort.
