From the moment it opened in 1902, the Alvarado Hotel was a destination for travelers, a publicity stop for celebrities, and headline material for newspaper reporters. From its rise and glory to its 1970 demolition, this Fred Harvey hotel on the AT&SF railway train route has been a vital part of Albuquerque history. Relive the memories of Harvey Girls, residents, and guests. Revisit the architecture, interiors and furnishings. Albuquerque's Alvarado Hotel is recreated in a way that time and demolition cannot erase.
