Alvarado Ballroom

The splendid, 14,000 square foot Alvarado Ballroom offers a breathtaking venue for your Albuquerque wedding ceremony and reception.. The ultimate expression of Southwest style and elegance, the Alvarado Ballroom is the grandest of our grand ballrooms.  Its decor is a uniquely sophisticated blending of Native American, Spanish, Mexican, and Western influences which define the Southwest style. This Albuquerque wedding site features soaring 22-foot ceilings, hand-stamped tin chandeliers, hand-plastered walls, Navajo rug-style carpeting, and historic photographs of bygone eras in the Southwest.

FRANCISCAN BALLROOM

The Franciscan Ballroom offers a more intimate ambiance than the Alvarado Ballroom, yet it is a uniquely grand experience in its own right.  When beginning your New Mexico wedding planning, consider the 3,796 square foot Franciscan Ballroom  for your wedding ceremony and reception. A refined example of the Pueblo Deco period from the 1930s and 1940s in the Southwest, Hotel Albuquerque’s wedding ballroom evokes the feel of country clubs and bygone eras. Elegant down to the last detail this sumptuous Albuquerque wedding venue features Native American-inspired geometric layered ceiling, custom-designed Two Grey Hills patterned carpet, hand-forged wall sconces shaped like thunderbirds, and large wooden chandeliers.

Pavilion & Gardens

Hotel Albuquerque's Pavilion and Gardens provide a magical outdoor setting for wedding ceremonies and receptions, and  can be uniquely configured to suit guest lists ranging from  10 to 500 people. This gracefully landscaped outdoor events space – with its fountains, rose arbors, lawn courts, Spanish-style gardens and a Victorian-style pavilion- offers a multitude of options when planning your Albuquerque outdoor wedding or event.  Consult with one of Hotel Albuquerque’s wedding planners for a detailed list of event options.
Fireplace Room Elegant and Intimate

Fireplace Room

The Fireplace Room at our Albuquerque, New Mexico hotel exudes a warm ambiance suited to holding more casual events, such as an intimate cocktail party, leading up to the big event. The Fireplace Room's casual sophistication comes from the wood-planked floors covered with Native American rugs, authentic pottery, beautifully detailed ceiling vigas and latillas, and, of course, the commanding fireplace which engages your attention.
