Select Registry, a Portfolio of Boutique Properties, Welcomes the Bottger Mansion of Old Town

A Historic 1912 American Foursquare Inn Joins Prestigious Independent Lodging Portfolio

LAKE OCONEE, Ga. – July 20, 2023 – Select Registry, a diverse portfolio of independent, boutique properties, is pleased to welcome the Bottger Mansion of Old Town of Albuquerque, New Mexico, as one of its newest members. 

Since 1972, Select Registry has curated a portfolio of quality-assured and handpicked properties representing the gold standard in craft hospitality. The diverse portfolio of independent lodging types ranges from full-service inns, lodges, rustic cabins, boutique hotels, stately mansions, and manors that stretch across the U.S. from the San Juan Islands to the Smokies, and beyond. 

“We are delighted to welcome the Bottger Mansion of Old Tow and its owners, Steve and Kathy Hiatt,” said Select Registry CEO Mark Reichle. “The Bottger Mansion of Old Town will make a great addition to our diverse portfolio of independent, quality-assured, boutique properties.”

Charles Bottger built his 1912 American Foursquare family home when valuable ore was found at his mine in Coyote Canyon. New wealth enabled him to furnish the house with pressed tin ceilings, hardwood floors, and all the latest amenities. One of the historically significant buildings in Old Town, the Bottger Mansion provides guests with a unique sense of place and time.

The Bottger Mansion’s location in the heart of Albuquerque encourages guests to explore many nearby museums, restaurants, shops, and galleries, as well as providing a home base for fabulous day trips in any direction. Visitors may wish to enjoy a leisurely stroll around Old Town and return to the Bottger Mansion for rejuvenation and rest.

Select Registry-certified properties exceed service standards because of its rigorous quality-assurance program. Prior to membership, all properties must be evaluated with the industry’s leading inspection program, covering everything from cleanliness to hospitality.
