Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) June 02, 2014
The Hotel Andaluz celebrates 75 years of business and their Diamond Anniversary this summer with the opportunity to win a pair of diamond earrings in a martini. At the property’s Diamond Jubilee event on June 6, 2014, guests and visitors will be able to buy tickets for a separate event in the hotel's Library for $75.00 to join an exclusive party where Diamontinis—premium vodka martinis—will be served, one of which will have a stunning pair of diamond stud earrings from Katherine Jetter Limited of Santa Fe.
The celebratory event, which kicks off at 7 pm and lasts until 10 pm, will also include live music by Rodney Bowe and Sweetlife in the hotel lobby as well as a chance to meet Conrad Hilton’s granddaughter, Linda Hilton.
“We are happy to be partnering with Katherine Jetter Limited in order to provide a once in a lifetime opportunity for guests of the Hotel Andaluz to find real diamonds in their Diamondtini,” said John O’Hara. “We are serious about commemorating this milestone in our hospitality history.”
Australian born Jetter lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico and is a gemologist and expert in opals. Her jewelry designs range from the more organic Santa Fe Collection which debuts this summer to brilliant, feminine work such as large opal, diamond and sapphire rings as well as earrings, necklaces and other pieces created from a range of precious stones. Jetter’s collections are sold from Moscow to China, Neiman Marcus stores and high-profile independent jewelers across the US. You can learn more about Jetter and her designs at katherinejetter.com.
“I am so excited for the guest who will find a pair of my diamond earrings in their cocktail—what a fantastic way to ring in the Hotel Andaluz’s 75th Anniversary,” said Jetter.
Constructed in 1939 by Hilton and opened as a Hilton Hotel, one of only four in the country at that time, the building was the first in New Mexico to have air conditioning and an elevator. Adding to the hotel’s glamour factor were guests such as Elizabeth Taylor, Nicky Hilton and Zsa Zsa Gabor. The property was purchased in 2005 by local real estate investor and designer Gary Goodman, who spent $30 million refurbishing it to its current Andalusian-themed glory. With care to restore old murals, fixtures and the elevators, the property’s 107 rooms were also outfitted with “smart technology,” which turns on or off heat, AC and lighting if guests enter or leave the room. 70 solar panels on the hotel’s roof heat 60% of the hotel’s water, and extensive recycling is standard for the property. It is the only hotel in the Southwest that is both on the Historic Registry and has a Gold LEED Certification.
