Unique Artwork Throughout the Hotel
For centuries men have searched for the legendary city known as Eldorado - the City of Gold. After conquest of the Incas of Peru and the Aztecs of Mexico, Spanish conquistadors set their sights on New Mexico, after learning about the fabled seven cities of gold that lay further ahead. In January 1540 Vasquez de Coronado set out from Mexico to find the fabled cities of gold. Despite their failure to find any cities of gold, history has shown this expedition to have been a journey of epic proportions. In little more than two years, Coronado and his men explored much of the Southwestern United States and visited all the major Indian villages in the region.
