An intimate Orient-meets-the-Southwest compounds provides the panache and personal service of a top-notch boutique hotel.
You'll find just 22 suites at this rambling collection of vintage Spanish Colonial-style buildings on Santa Fe's oldest street, just a few blocks from the historic Plaza as well as the hip Guadalupe District. At the Inn of the Five Graces, the thoughtful manager and his adept, well-trained staff tend to every guest need, happily arranging treatments at local spas and scoring great seats at the city's best restaurants---they even lead walking tours through town. Other perks include a hearty gourmet breakfast and, each afternoon, complimentary margaritas and chips, or wine and cheese. The rooms mix the Southwestern vibe that's typical in Santa Fe with Asian sensibilities, including kilim rugs, ancient Latin American and Asian decorative arts and artifacts, and sumptuous fabrics and linens. Most rooms have deep soaking or Jacuzzi tubs with mosaic tiles and woodburning or gas fireplaces, and all have refrigerators stocked with delicious, complimentary gourmet snacks and beverages. You won't lack for creature comforts at this elegant hideaway.
