For those interested in a unique, historic B&B in Albuquerque, the 10-room Brittania & W.E. Mauger Estate might be the perfect choice. The three-story red-brick Queen Anne-style home was built in 1897 and has been excellently maintained and restored -- but contemporary touches such as free Wi-Fi make this a contemporary property, as does its prime location to modern attractions (downtown and the Convention Center are a short walk away). Guests rave about the breakfasts, chocolate chip cookies, and evening appetizers with wine, as well as the personal service and decor -- all homey B&B-style touches that you won't find at larger chain hotels.
The gorgeous, historic Hotel Parq Central may technically be mid-range, but it looks and feels more like an upscale property. The public spaces and guest rooms feature elegant decor and the free breakfast includes gourmet selections. But this stylish 74-room boutique lacks some of the amenities of a larger, higher-end hotel. There's a rooftop bar with great city views and an extensive collection of railway relics, as well as a small fitness center.
The Hacienda Antigua Bed and Breakfast is a charming B&B that offers guests a unique, authentic New Mexico experience along with their home-cooked breakfasts. A historic vibe pervades this 18th-century, Spanish-style former ranch house, which features adobe walls, rustic rooms, and antique furniture. The grounds are lovely, with a landscaped courtyard that includes a small pool and Jacuzzi surrounded by a pretty brick deck. The property's location in a quiet residential neighborhood makes for a tranquil setting.
