This dusty West Texan town on the US-Mexico border has a colorful past – from its Wild West days, through to being a battleground during the Mexican Revolution and its Prohibition-era notoriety. While modern-day El Paso is a far cry from the lawless frontier town of old, there’s more than a whiff of nostalgia with its vintage streetcars, saloons-turned-craft-beer-bars and annual Billy the Kid Festival. If you’re looking for somewhere to hang your hat, here’s our list of the best hotels – bookable on Culture Trip.
