Area Attractions

The Downtown Historic Bed and Breakfast is the ideal location for your Albuquerque vacation or business travel.

We are conveniently located within blocks of several hospitals, as well as the Convention Center and revitalized Downtown Albuquerque.  When you fly in, we are just a five-minute drive to the Sunport International Airport. Once you are here, you’ll be within walking distance to some of Albuquerque’s best restaurants, shopping, and museums. A short five-block walk will take you to the train station, which will give you access to several great spots outside the Downtown Albuquerque area. Just a block away is a bus stop that will take you to Old Town, Nob Hill, and Uptown, where Albuquerque’s newest outdoor shopping facility is located. You will never run out of things to do in Albuquerque. It is a city of great attractions that appeal to all interests.
