He explained: ‘I think I was getting a little bit worn out from it all and lockdown just gave me the kick up the backside so I’m looking forward to it this year.

‘I had time to sit and enjoy [the house] and it was great during the summer, the garden was amazing.

‘We had no money left, so we didn’t get any of the other planned features in the garden done. That’s why I need to go back to work.’

Historic Hotel Paso Del Norte, Autograph Collection Opens After Multi-Million-Dollar Renovation

The doors to 1912 are reopening with the highly anticipated renovation of the historic Hotel Paso del Norte, Autograph Collection. After nearly four years and a multi-million-dollar renovation, the 351-room luxury hotel is welcoming locals and travelers to a destination where modern-day luxury inhabits a setting of history and culture. Here, panoramic views of the Franklin Mountains and terraces that overlook the glow of the Mexican border provide a distinct sense of place. Amidst birdcage light fixtures, inspired lounge areas offer retreats, while a thriving culinary scene bursts to life with El Paso’s most extensive list of wines and tequilas, and each room offers a private world of leisure.

“Once in a great while, you happen upon a place that captures time and everything that is good about life,” said Carlos Sarmiento, general manager of Hotel Paso del Norte, Autograph Collection. “That’s the feeling people experience at Hotel Paso del Norte. Here, everything that is good about life abounds: impeccable architecture, exquisite dining and drinks, friendly people, and the comforts of luxurious amenities. It’s not just an escape, it’s a celebration of living.”

He partnered with Trost & Trost Architects of El Paso and Andrews & Company of New York to put form to his vision, ultimately creating a destination that has stood the test of time.

Guests in the early 20th century would drink libations while watching the Mexican Revolution from the hotel’s storied 10th floor. Today, travelers and locals savor the hotel’s elegance while exploring the charms of
