Imagine getting off the train in Las Vegas, New Mexico, in 1898 and a gorgeous Mission Revival-style hotel welcomes you.
The Castañeda Hotel closed in 1948 and was abandoned for 70 years. It was lovingly and authentically restored to its original elegance and reopened in April 2019. A comfortable saloon, gourmet restaurant, and authentic sleeping rooms await you.
Themed after an original Fred Harvey Hotel, each sleeping room is furnished with antiques that will make you feel like it is 1898 instead of 2019, except for the modern plumbing.
Shop the many great antique stores while you are there.
