Santa Fe’s adobe buildings with mountains in the background.



Spring is right around the corner, and we know you are ready for a break. It’s the perfect time to plan a weekend getaway to Santa Fe to soak up the beautiful scenery, stroll around the art galleries, browse the shops at the Sante Fe Plaza, and maybe pamper yourself with a spa treatment. You will want to stay somewhere that evokes that quintessential Sante Fe charm. Here are four lovely boutique hotels to check out. 

The Inn of the Five Graces

Each of the 24 suites at the Inn of the Five Graces is adorned with colorful East Indian and Tibetan furniture and linens. Detailed mosaic tiled baths add to the exotic feel of these unique rooms. Adobe wood-burning fireplaces are perfect for chilly spring evenings, or head to the onsite spa for an herb-infused massage after a day on the town. 

Hotel St. Francis

As the oldest hotel in Santa Fe, the Hotel St. Francis oozes historic charm and provides an excellent location for exploring downtown Santa Fe. Rooms feature locally-made artisan furniture and modern baths. Check out the lovely Secreto Lounge for a scratch cocktail before dinner. 

Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe

The Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe is also a great pick for its central location and southwest feel. Rooms feature hand-made wood furnishings and Native American decor. Some rooms have balconies and fireplaces. Sign up for one of the hotel’s unique tours in their custom ’64 Chevy Impala lowrider, and then head back for excellent New Mexican and French fusion dishes at their restaurant, Estevan. 

Inn of the Turquoise Bear

This bed and breakfast on the outskirts of downtown is a true charmer. The 1920s adobe villa was once a hangout for artists and writers including Georgia O'keeffe and Robert Frost. Today, it boasts cozy rooms and fantastic service. Chat with other guests over fabulous homemade breakfasts and take a stroll around the lovely Don Casper Historic District where the Inn is located.
