HOTEL ANDALUZ

THE OFFICIAL HOST HOTEL OF AFME

$124.00/NIGHT FOR AFME ATTENDEES

 

Hotel Andaluz has a rich history in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. Only the fourth hotel ever built by Conrad Hilton, Hotel Andaluz was returned to its former glory in 2008 by current owner Gary Goodman.

 

Placed on The National Register of Historic Places in 1984, Hotel Andaluz was meticulously restored and updated by us using cutting edge technology and an eye to bringing new life to one of the Southwest's iconic buildings.

While under renovation, the ownership was determined to incorporate many green initiatives into the building.
Furnishings, equipment, and demolition debris were recycled and documented throughout the process.
The hotel generates approximately 60% of its guest rooms’ hot water using solar energy. Interior finishes have been carefully selected to incorporate LEED approved natural and low VOC emissions products.
 

Andaluz – short for Andalucian – evokes the passion and pride of the region of Spain that has inspired the hotel’s décor and architectural style. The four interlocking A’s of the logo reflect an adaptation of classic Andalucian tile. Look for the logo in the traditional Andalucian arch that graces the hotels’s public spaces.

Hotel Andaluz is proud of its many awards. From being one of only two GOLD Leed certified hotels in the US to being a Condé Nast top hotel of the Southwest, the staff takes stewardship of the environment and guests seriously, and it shows.

AFME is excited to introduce our attendees and filmmakers to the top  luxury hotel in Albuquerque.
