Spacious Suites in the Heart of Santa Fe
When you walk through downtown Santa Fe, it can feel more like a rustic old-west town than New Mexico’s thriving capital. Though some modern buildings have sprouted up throughout the city, you’ll still see historical mission churches in the heart of downtown, all set against the ruddy backdrop of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Situated in these foothills‚ Villas de Santa Fe welcomes visitors with warm southwestern decor and pueblo-style architecture. Well-appointed suites make the property a comfy home base for exploring the area, which is rich in Native American and Mexican history.
Each carefully designed one-bedroom suite feels more like an apartment than a hotel room. Desert-inspired art hangs on the walls in one of the standard rooms, and you’ll find colorful woven fabrics on the couch in the separate living area. Each suite comes with a partial kitchen, where there’s a full-size refrigerator, a stovetop, and honey-colored wood cabinetry.
After waking up, unwind in the outdoor hot tub or practice chasing after mail carriers on the treadmills at the onsite fitness center. The hotel also has a complimentary shuttle that can zip you around the property, so you can save your energy for a scenic walk through the city.
Highlights of Santa Fe
- Cultural influences: Native American, Latino, and western traditions
- Santa Fe Plaza has served as the city center for more than 400 years. Strolling through, you'll see old buildings made of adobe, the red brick-like material that defines much of Santa Fe's architecture. Visit the New Mexico Museum of Art to see centuries of colorful southwestern artwork.
- Fiery chili is the signature flavor at many restaurants in Santa Fe, which earned a place on TripAdvisor's Top 10 Food & Wine Destinations in the United States in 2011. Sign up for a walking food tour to sample zesty southwestern cuisine at some of the city's popular eateries.
- More than 300 days of sunshine per year: Santa Fe's consistently great weather, paired with New Mexico’s varied terrain, makes the region ideal for hiking and biking.
- Sangre de Cristo Mountains: Some of the peaks in this awe-inspiring chain stand over 13,000 feet high. Hiking trails wind past picturesque meadows filled with Indian paintbrush, purple lupine, and other wildflowers.
