Conrad Hilton was born in San Antonio, New Mexico, where his family owned and operated a boarding house. In the 1930’s he spared no expense to fulfill his childhood dream: To build “the finest full-service hotel in the Southwest.” As New Mexico’s tallest building, with the State’s first overhead balconies, the architecture and furnishings of Spanish tile floors, hand-carved furniture, tinwork, Navajo textiles and wall murals - drew the elite from all over the world. Mr. Hilton even brought his blushing bride, Zsa Zsa Gabor, to celebrate their wedding with famous friends.
The hotel has been restored to its 1930’s splendor with all the modern conveniences, and has received countless awards for architecture, urban renewal and interior design.
114 guest rooms and suites, uniquely charming from the Spanish tiles to the handcrafted furniture and soothing Southwest colors.
5,700 square feet of space on the mezzanine for meetings and banquets; a beautiful Southwestern ballroom, lobby bar, weekend piano entertainment during Happy Hour with jazz combo on weekends. Experience the essence of Southwestern hospitality and a “most romantic” restaurant.
