Santa Fe has some excellent options at both ends of the affordability spectrum. We think you will like:
El Rey Inn: For the best affordable option check out this Inn at 1862 Cerrillos Rd. I have stayed there several times. Breakfast is included.
Inn of the Five Graces, 150 E. DeVargas St.: A wonderful, small boutique hotel with furnishings from Central Asia and other cultures.
Bishop’s Lodge Resort, 1297 Bishops Lodge Road: A resort and spa that has been a favorite for many for years. It is a few minutes drive north of the Plaza.
Inn of the Anasazi: A Rosewood property, just off the Plaza, at 113 Washington Avenue. A lovely property with small sitting rooms and a very good restaurant. For private functions, the downstairs wine cellar is the perfect spot.
Santa Fe Inns of Distinction at www.santafeinns.com. Check out this website for several inns in town.
Casa Las Artes: A lovely home in Tesuque in it’s own private compound. A great place if you want privacy away from the tourists in the Plaza. It is an easy drive to the Santa Fe Opera in the summer and walking distance to our favorite Tesuque Village Market. It has four bedrooms and four and a half baths plus a casita with one extra bedroom and bath. Book early as this is a very popular house.
The historic Hotel St. Francis is considered one of the top boutique hotels in town at 21o Don Gaspar, a block from the Plaza. It’s restaurant Tabla de Los Santos and Secreto Lounge have received good press also. They have a lovely outdoor patio.
