The Plaza Hotel: Las Vegas, NM, 1 nights
Type: Full Service Hotel

Description: The Plaza Hotel, in Las Vegas, NM, was built in 1882, and presided regally over the Old Town Plaza. Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders held their first reunion at the hotel in 1899. In 1882, it had 54 rooms, but in 1982, when it was renovated, the number of rooms was reduced to 37 to add private baths and generous dressing rooms. After the railroad first reached Las Vegas in 1879, merchants rich from the Santa Fe Trail trade pooled $1,000 each to build this hotel. Because of its hospitality and beauty, the hotel today is just as ready to serve you a good meal or let you sleep in a comfortable bed as it was in 1882. The best thing about the hotel is its resident ghost, that of Byron T. Mills!
