Hotel Andaluz is a historic high-rise hotel building built in 1939 as the Hilton Hotel but underwent renovations in 2008 and now operates as Hotel Andaluz. It is located at 125 Second Street NW in Downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Opened in 1939, it was Conrad Hilton's fourth hotel and the first modern high-rise hotel in the state. Architect Anton F. Korn designed the ten-story building in the New Mexico Territorial style, with earthtone stucco, brick coping along the roofline, and southwest-style woodwork and furnishings. The hotel was renovated in 1984 and reopened as La Posada.
The old Hilton Hotel was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
In 2005, the hotel was purchased by Gary Goodman, whose company Goodman Realty Group is also behind the upcoming Winrock Town Center. In March 2008, the hotel underwent an extensive $30 million renovation and restoration, reopening as "Hotel Andaluz" in 2009. The hotel was honored with LEED Gold certification for it's sustainability, and has been recognized many times over the years by Conde Nast as one of the top hotels in the U.S. southwest. The property features Más Tapas y Vino, a Spanish-influenced "dining experience" under the helm of Executive Chef Marc Quinones. It also offers the Ibiza Urban Rooftop Lounge and an extensive live entertainment program on weekends. 6,000 square feet (560 m2) of conference facilities.
