This barely 1-year-old hotel located in a developing section of Old Town Albuquerque is a cut above anything else in the city. With its introduction in April 2017, Hotel Chaco heralded a new chapter of luxury for Albuquerque.
Defined by cultural heritage, delineated by ancient and modern Native American art and transformed by a fusion of traditional and contemporary, Hotel Chaco smacks of efficiency, with clean architectural lines that honor basic earth elements and a supporting palette of earth-based colors. All this is expertly achieved even as the hotel honors historical connections through simulated kivas and pueblo-style art from contemporary Native American New Mexican artists.
Hotel Chaco, a Heritage Hotels & Resorts property, was designed by the global architecture, design and planning firm Gensler. Throughout the hotel, expect to find sustainable strategies incorporated into the spaces. One feature I particularly enjoyed was the motion-based night light that illuminated the bathroom. No need to find light switches in the middle of the night.
Expect to be greeted by a complimentary glass of bubbly Champagne upon checking in. A simulated kiva serves as reservation and reception area. Though the hotel has 118 rooms, each with a private terrace, the feeling is more spacious boutique and art gallery than modern sterility. Other hotel features include a rooftop restaurant and lounge, outdoor swimming pool with hot tub and 24-hour fitness center. There’s plenty of meeting space as well.
The luxury Hotel Chaco was directly inspired by the mystique of nearby Chaco Canyon, A UNESCO World Heritage site. A major center of Pueblo and Native American culture from about 900 to 1150, this thriving cultural center was abruptly abandoned for reasons still not apparent. To honor these historical connections, Hotel Chaco and partner Heritage Inspirations offer exclusive Saturday tours and overnight trips to Chaco Culture National Historical Park.

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
