Victorian elegance reflects the century-old history of this swank downtown inn.
One of the most historic homes in Albuquerque's increasingly hip downtown, the Mauger (pronounced Major) Estate occupies a handsome red brick Queen Anne Victorian that dates to 1897. High ceilings and an elegant veranda accent this lovely home, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Rooms are decorated with imported throw pillows and a well-chosen mix of antique and contemporary furnishings; thoughtful extras include fine toiletries and chocolates. This place is a favorite for visiting dignitaries and celebrities, who appreciate the personal service and Old World charm. From the front steps flanked by fragrant flower beds, it's an easy walk to historic Old Town and just a short drive to funky and eclectic Nob Hill. The hearty buffet breakfast will keep you going for a good part of the day, and in-room refrigerators are stocked with complimentary snacks and beverages. Other amenities include satellite television and the use of a fitness center a few blocks away.
