Historic Plaza Hotel
Established in 1882
Number of Rooms: 71
The Plaza Hotel, dubbed "The Belle of the Southwest" in 1882, presides regally over the Old Town Plaza in Las Vegas, New Mexico, which was an important trading hub on the Santa Fe Trail. Seemingly suspended in time, historic Las Vegas is home to more than 900 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places and is about the same size it was when Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders held their first reunion at the Plaza Hotel in 1899.
The Plaza Hotel was a favorite silent film location for director/actor Romaine Fielding and famous cowboy actor Tom Mix between 1913 and 1915. Fielding leased the entire place, renaming it Hotel Romaine; That faded name is still visible on the brick facade. The hotel has just completed the addition of an adjoining building, adding 35 lodging accommodation units and 3100 square feet of meeting / banquet space, plus renovations in the restaurant and public area.
**The Range Cafe' at the Plaza**
This is the place locals and visitors prefer to convene in Las Vegas, New Mexico for satisfying meals in a genuine Old West setting. A menu of favorite standards and rotating daily specials guarantees that there is something delicious for all palates. The friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere encourages guests to relax and enjoy their time at the Plaza.
**Byron T. Saloon**
The Byron T. Saloon hasn’t changed much since the 1800s – it’s still the place to go to slow down, gather news, socialize and relax with a drink or cigar. Overlooking historic Las Vegas Plaza, it is easy to imagine the cowboys and settlers who made their way into this bar.
The historic Plaza Hotel offers businesses a multitude of meeting and exhibition space. The ballroom can accommodate up to 300 people and smaller rooms can host groups of various sizes. Constructed in 1882, the Plaza offers elegant Victorian ambiance with 21st century business amenities.
