Albuquerque in Bernalillo County, New Mexico — The American Mountains (Southwest)
One of the nation's most distinctive railroad hotels, The Alvarado was for several decades the social and political center of Albuquerque. The hotel was described by one affectionate traveler as "one of the last of the Harvey Houses and the most beautiful of them all, with old gray stucco and the turquoise trim, its cool courts and shady patios inviting siesta, its Indian museum packed with old Pueblo artifacts, its slow heartbeat of the coming and going of the Santa Fe trains."
