Route 66 hotel project aims for December opening
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Developers of an $18 million project along historic Route 66 say they are aiming for a December opening of the revamped property.
The face-lift of the storied El Vado motor lodge in Albuquerque includes a boutique hotel, a new mixed-use building next door and an events center.
The lobby of the hotel will have a taproom that will feature local brews, and General Manager Carrie Confair is lining up different businesses to operate food trucks at the site.
The Albuquerque Journal reports that plans to redevelop El Vado have been in the works for years.
