This fall, when the La Posada de Albuquerque Hotel reopens after undergoing a $30 million facelift, it’ll have a completely new look and new name.

The newly named Andaluz — a nod to Albuquerque’s rich Spanish heritage — will feature a completely renovated interior that incorporates both Moroccan and Spanish colonial influences.

“The entire property will have a Mediterranean style and vibe, and we believe that the name Andaluz embodies this essence,” said Yancy Sturgeon, general manager.

Andaluz will feature a mezzanine-level cultural center, a Mediterranean restaurant, a rooftop lounge and a lobby bar featuring live, weekly entertainment

The boutique hotel has a rich history dating back to 1939, when it originally opened as the Hilton Hotel. In 2005, La Posada was purchased by Historic Hotels LLC and is now operated by Park City, Utah-based Gemstone Hotels & Resorts.
