Promoting Environment-Friendly Initiatives

El Cuervo believes in eco-friendly practices, which we encourage our guests to follow. In an effort to do our part to help sustain our environment, you will notice signage around the house with friendly reminders of how your contributions as guests help us achieve those initiatives. Our team is open to suggestions, so if you have an eco-friendly idea that we overlooked, feel free to share it with us!

Amazing People You Will Meet

We are a mecca for art, culture, diversity, wanderlust, experience, and history. When staying with us, you’ll meet staff members and fellow travelers who value these concepts as well.

"The Desert has always been my greatest muse. There is a stunning brilliance in its vast, sprawling beauty. Some have fantasized about it their entire life and others will not understand it until they have experienced it first-hand. Being born and raised in Albuquerque has instilled in me- a deep love and respect for culture, diversity, and the arts. Those born of the Desert Southwest are blessed with the incredible privilege of being completely immersed in these rich influences. I am incredibly grateful for the privilege of being raised with such an eclectic perspective of life. Our blend of Native, Spanish, Mexican, and Wild West Culture has so much deep history; The landscapes are panoramic; And the possibility for adventure is endless. Stay with us! Eat with us! Learn our story! Experience Albuquerque."
