Inn of the Turquoise Bear Hotel Review

: If you were one of America's bohemian celebrities during the Roaring Twenties, and you happened to visit Santa Fe, you most likely spent some time at the magnificent Pueblo Revival home of eccentric poet Witter Bynner. The home, parts of which date to the mid-19th-century, hosted such luminaries as Errol Flynn, D.H. Lawrence, Willa Cather, Georgia O'Keefe, and Ansel Adams, and these days it's one of the city's most atmospheric B&Bs. The property is just off the Old Santa Fe Trail, about a ten-minute walk south of the Plaza and within an easy stroll of several fine art galleries, shops, and cafes as well as the city's Zia-shaped State Capitol. Most of the ten rooms and suites have private baths, and the two units that share a bath are bargain-priced. In these individually furnished rooms you may find such decorative elements as brick or Saltillo-tile floors, tiled showers and bathrooms, private portals (patios), kiva-style fireplaces, beam ceilings, and handcrafted beds. Most have private entrances, too. Surrounding the property are well-tended gardens and pathways. There aren't many accommodations in town steeped in deeper---and more colorful---history.
