Fathom Favorites : Santa Fe Hotels

1. Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe

The ranch is a 20-minute drive from the Plaza, nestled in the Sangre de Cristo foothills. Sit around the fire pit with a hot toddy and soak up the magic of the distant Jemez Mountains and the warm, soothing scent of pinion wood. If you're there during opera season, have the hotel set up a Champagne tailgate and sit under the stars.

Santa Fe, NM 87506

2. Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi

A warm, cozy spot nestled in the heart of Santa Fe, with Navajo rugs, hand-carved doors, beamed ceilings, and sandstone walls. A pinion wood fire burns in the lobby, making for an intoxicating scent of the Southwest. The lighting is low; the mood is relaxed. You will feel exceptionally cozy. Book a superior room with a balcony for the enticing kiva fireplace.

3. Casas de Santa Fe

For longer stays or bigger groups, consider a vacation rental from Casas de Santa Fe, where high-end hotel touches, like Frette linens and Molton Brown products, are at all the properties. Casa de Maria on Canyon Road is extra special with the scent of apple shrubs, pear trees, and wild lavender dotting the property.

Santa Fe, NM

4. Hotel St. Francis

A comfortable and affordable home base in downtown Santa Fe. The city's oldest hotel is beautiful and simple, very much like its patron saint. The best thing about staying at the hotel is having access to Inger Boudouris; the hotel concierge (since 1987) knows just about everything there is to know about Santa Fe.
