Debuting in the 1930s, The Plaza Hotel Pioneer Park was Conrad Hilton Jr.’s first high-rise hotel. It is the tallest hotel in the Sun City, and as the sun sets in the horizon it is one of the defining features of the El Paso skyline. The former penthouse, now turned rooftop bar, used to be utilized by Conrad Hilton Jr.’s former wife and queen of Hollywood’s golden age, Elizabeth Taylor.

Having opened on Thanksgiving Day in 1912, Hotel Paso Del Norte has given us much to be thankful for. The seven-and-a-halfmeter diameter stained glass dome is iconic to the 108-year-old property. A number of celebrities and U.S presidents have walked through those doors and dwelled in their rooms. The return of this historic hotel will bring together stylings that mimic this border town and what makes it so unique.

The four-story light well that the hotel is centered around, illuminates the inside and houses mesmerizing moving light sculptures that light up the restaurant at night. The mezzanine art gallery is home to a collection of art that features up and coming local artists as well as artists from Mexico and Europe.

The 90-year-old O.T Bassett Tower unifies and highlights the historic and contemporary. During its renovation’s preservationists took on the challenge of restoring the iconic brass fixtures by hand. Besides the gold leaf detailing that occupies the inside, the historic building features marble flooring, brass elevators and the original mail chutes. Additionally, the WXYZ bar hosts music and entertainment in relation to the signature Aloft Live Presents series.
