The Hotel Clovis is a high-rise building in Clovis, New Mexico, United States. It originally opened on October 20, 1931. It originally served as a hotel. When it was built, at 119 feet (36 m) and 10 stories high it was the tallest building between Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Dallas, Texas.[3] Hotel Clovis was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[4]

Although vacant since 1983, Developer Stephen Crozier has launched an extensive renovation of the 10-story Clovis Hotel. Crozier has announced that he would like to build 31 loft-style apartments in the Art Deco building, as well as creating some 8,000 square feet of commercial space. The developer also wants to build two separate structures that will house an additional 59 units. Groundbreaking started September 30, 2011 and a yearlong construction project is to become the Hotel Clovis Lofts.[citation needed]

Though first touted as "upper-income assisted living" the apartments are HUD assisted and lower income housing. As the end of 2015 approaches, the street-level commercial spaces remain unoccupied and have not been architecturally finished. Developer Steven Crozier has continued building additional apartments two blocks west of the Hotel Clovis encompassing a full city block.[citation needed]
