You’ll Never Forget Your Stay At The Oldest Hotel In New Mexico

What makes an establishment the oldest hotel in the state? Is it the hotel that’s currently housed in the oldest building or one on a site where there has been some form of hotel for centuries? While those certainly qualify a hotel as historical, it isn’t enough. We expected the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas or the Palace Hotel in Silver City to earn this title. However, the oldest building in New Mexico that has always functioned as a hotel is actually Hotel La Fonda de Taos.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
