A refined spa hideaway on the eastern edge of downtown Santa Fe.
This ultra-posh property resides on the east side of downtown Santa Fe, just a few blocks from the historic Plaza and an equally short distance from narrow Canyon Road, with its dozens of acclaimed art galleries. La Posada offers 159 rooms and suites in wide variety of buildings and configurations. There are high-ceilinged Victorian-inspired rooms in the Second Empire main building, which dates to 1882—you'll also find marble baths in these units. In outbuildings set around the property, you'll find everything from homey private cottages to newer rooms that feel more opulent than the rest but that also lack the creaky historic charm typical of the older rooms. There's really something for everyone, and it's wise to discuss your preference when phoning to make reservations. Wherever you stay on property, you'll have such modern amenities as Wi-Fi and cable TV, and many rooms have fireplaces, too. Guests can enjoy treatments at one of the most appealing spas in New Mexico, Avanyu. Right across the courtyard, dine on the patio or inside the dark and romantic dining room of La Fuego, one of the finest restaurants around. Or pop inside the historic Staab House bar to hear live jazz and sample some wines by the glass or fine tequilas.
