New Mexico's La Castaneda Hotel changes hands

The La Castaneda Hotel has changed hands after new owner Allan Affeldt closed a deal on Monday.

“We signed the papers today and I have a big pile of keys and we are going to see if we can get into the building,” Affeldt told the Albuquerque Journal.

Affeldt and his wife Mion helped preservationists save La Posada, also a Harvey House property, through negotiations with the Santa Fe Railway.
