Stay at our Holiday Inn® hotels in Albuquerque and immerse yourself in the old Southwest. Shop for turquoise and leather along the cobbled passageways of the Old Town Plaza, then dine on savory enchiladas on a candlelit café patio.
Eighteenth-century Albuquerque comes to life just a short drive from our hotels in Albuquerque. Terracotta Navajo pots, Spanish colonial military uniforms and the vivid paintings of Ernest Blumenschein and Georgia O'Keeffe recall the city's rich cultural mix at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History. No less colorful is the collection in the Balloon Museum, a multi-hued homage to hot-air ballooning. The collection includes World War I observation balloons, 19th-century wicker baskets and Victorian parachutes. Our Albuquerque hotels make it easy to explore the traditions of the Pueblo people at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, which displays intricately woven baskets and other tribal artifacts. On weekends the center hosts dance performances and demonstrations of pottery- and jewelry-making.
Narrow walkways form a pueblo labyrinth in the heart of Old Town, just a short distance from our Albuquerque hotels. Explore the neighborhood's passages on foot, peering into the Plaza's jewel-box patios and gardens bright with roses and fountains. Browse the Plaza shops and galleries for silver and turquoise jewelry, expressive kachina dolls, tooled leather jackets and contemporary Southwestern landscape paintings. The Old Town's restaurants dish up satisfying dinners, from traditional Southwestern fare like chicken enchiladas and spiced stuffed peppers to more modern fusions.
Book a stay in our Holiday Inn Albuquerque hotels and celebrate four seasons of fiestas. Come in autumn, when the landscape brightens with the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, or in winter, when hundreds of luminarias glow in the cobbled courtyards of the Old Town.

My only home when in Albuquerque
I do love this hotel, they do everything to make one feel at home. The only improvements I can see if them adding more handicapped parking, there are only two spots near the front entrance.[Less]

The breakfast waitress was truly amazing. She was always happy and pleasant and attentive. Within a couple of days she knew exactly what I was going to order and how I wanted it prepared. I only wish[More] I knew her name. She was great!![Less]
Excellent Stay in every way!
