Hotels in Santa Fe
Hotels in Santa Fe range from simple, but charming inns to exclusive luxury resorts with sweeping golf courses and spas. Santa Fe hotels have something to offer every type of traveler, whether they need something budget-friendly or want to splurge on a special vacation. For spa goers, try the Inn & Spa at Loretto, which boasts an array of massages, fine dining, beautiful pool and gardens.
