Top 10 Boutique Hotels in Santa Fe
A quiet adobe retreat near the shops and restaurants of the Historic Plaza.
Just a five-minute walk from Santa Fe's Historic Plaza, this hotel sits in a residential area, away from the tourist bustle. Its adobe entrance is adorned with desert blooms, and there is something about this intimate welcome that makes you feel as if you've arrived to stay in a close friend's casita. The 72 rooms and suites fill up in July and August, and during the Hot Air Balloon Festival in October. Guest rooms are done in the area's ubiquitous Southwest style with local artwork and handmade furnishings. They offer lots of nice luxury extras, such as triple-sheeted, 300-count, Egyptian cotton bed linens, Italian robes, and basics like hair dryers, cable TV and data ports. Some rooms have fireplaces, patios and/or balconies, and suites are casita-style with their own entrances. Morning newspapers and local calls are free. B&B touches include a generous complimentary breakfast of pastries and fresh fruit, and a wine and cheese reception in the afternoon. The hotel calls on the best of the city's caterers for conferences, luncheons and reception dinners in its 2,500-square-feet of meeting space.
