Treat yourself to a magical Christmas in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the Bottger Mansion of Old Town. Leave your car parked and enjoy thousands of luminarias on Christmas Eve—you can even arrive a bit early and help us make our luminarias! Pile your presents under our tree or open them in your room. Join us for Christmas dinner since the restaurants in Old Town are closed on Christmas Day. Choose "Christmas in Old Town" for either one or two people when you make your room reservation. This special package includes:
  • Mexican hot chocolate on Christmas Eve to sip as you stroll around Old Town among the luminarias
  • English-style Christmas crackers for everyone at breakfast on Christmas morning—pop yours open to find the prize and wear your Christmas crown!
  • Christmas dinner in our dining room. This year’s menu includes cran-apple spinach salad with spiced pecans, roast pork tenderloin with orange-chipotle sauce, couscous with currants and pine nuts, roasted asparagus spears drizzled with balsamic vinegar and sprinkled with shaved parmesan cheese, and New Orleans bread pudding with bourbon sauce and spiced whipped cream. Beverages include locally-roasted coffee and teas from New Mexico Tea Company.
