A historic motor lodge restored to its Route 66 grandeur.
The El Rey has been a fixture on Cerrillos Road since the 1930s, when fabled Route 66 ran through Santa Fe. The five-acre mini-resort remains one of the city's most appealing vintage properties, with its 80 rooms and eight suites decked mid-20th-century modern furnishings, including handsome armoires, beamed ceilings, handmade wooden furnishings, willow shutters, elaborate tinwork, and kiva-style wood-burning fireplaces. All units have satellite TV, and some have fully equipped kitchens. Lacing the property are gardens, patios, and fountains---there's also a children's playground, a high-ceilinged lobby lounge where breakfast is served each morning, and a self-service laundry. The location on Cerrillos Road is not within walking distance of the Plaza, but it's only a ten-minute drive, and the hotel is within close proximity of many restaurants and modern shopping centers. There's free parking outside each of the rooms. This is a great chance to experience retro Route 66 charm without having to go without modern conveniences and luxury.
