The Hilltop House Hotel closed Sunday as the Los Alamos National Bank completed its foreclosure process.
But there is still a business operating on the property.
The Hilltop House Spa, which opened its doors five and a half years ago, has close to 180 clients and will remain fully operational despite the hotel’s closure. Spa owners Ed and Pam Worth have been paying rent to the Los Alamos National Bank for the past six months.
“The bank has said we are an asset to the property,” Ed Worth said.
“I really want to thank the bank, the county and the fire department for looking after us and keeping us open.”
If the bank sells the property and the spa is forced to move, Worth said he is not worried.
“A lot of the realtors in town are our clients and they told us we will find you a place for your business,” Worth said.
But for now, the Worth’s are happy in their location next to the hotel.
With the hotel’s closure, the pool and the sauna closed.
Worth said that should not affect business.
“We had a couple people use the pool and sauna, but I know their main thing is getting the services,” Worth said.
The Hilltop House Spa provides massage therapy, facials, waxing, and spray tanning and there is also a hair and nail salon. In addition, there also is a mini gym. The spa offers a variety of products including cosmetics, skin care, and oils.
“We offer a debit program where $69 or $99 plus tax is auto-debited from your account each month, allowing you to receive a treat every month at this discounted price,” Pam Worth said.
The business began when Pam Worth visited an aesthetician, who was working at the present location.
“She was closing and asked Pam if she wanted to buy it,” Ed Worth said. “We started off slow but built it up and now we have close to 180 clients.”
