The Plaza Inn Albuquerque, New Mexico, over-looks downtown Albuquerque and is located amid top attractions and events. Albuquerque is New Mexico's largest city and it's also one of the state's most culturally diverse. Since its founding in 1706, Spanish, Mexican, and Native American influences have shaped the local culture, reflected in the city’s distinctive Pueblo Revival architecture.The bulk of Albuquerque's cultural offerings center on Old Town, where you'll find art galleries and restaurants housed within historical adobe buildings. About a mile northeast of Old Town, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center has an impressive collection of artifacts dating back to pre-Columbian settlers. The museum building is inspired by the Pueblo Bonito ruins of Chaco Canyon.
To see a real pueblo, head to Acoma Pueblo, about 65 miles west of Albuquerque. Set atop a mesa, this dusty village—one of the oldest in the country—consists of centuries-old adobes where native artisans craft pottery with distinctive black-and-white designs.
There are plenty of things to do in Albuquerque and the surrounding area but Southwest flavor isn’t all you can anticipate with Albuquerque and The Plaza Inn. We like to do things a little different here, and your comfort is our top priority. The beautiful Spruce Historic Neighborhood, just behind the hotel, provides a beautiful area for walking or jogging and borders the University of New Mexico campus. If your adventure keeps you within the comfort of our hotel you’re welcome to utilize the indoor heated pool and hot tub, or the hotel's exercise room - and be sure and meet us in the Coffee Bar for fresh popcorn and lemonaide every afternoon!
Not only is our hotel close to many Albuquerque attractions and just down the way from the University of New Mexico, but we’re also only a short distance from Albuquerque International Sunport Airport (3 mi) and approx. one (1) mile from the historic Albuquerque Railyard, which services Amtrak, Greyhound, and the New Mexico's own RAILRUNNER (providing train service for commuters and tourists traveling from Los Lunas through Albuquerque and on to Santa Fe and back ). Don’t have transportation? No worries, our hotel's shuttle service is complimentary to overnight guests and accommodating within a five (5) mile radius of the Plaza Inn, it is the most expansive hotel shuttle in Albuquerque.
