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. Families may want to consider a ranch-style hotel that will give children a way to explore cowboy life, like Bishop’s Lodge or Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado, both a few miles outside town, but closer to the horseback riding and hiking trails than hotels in Santa Fe. Apartment-style lodging is perfect for groups of skiers, so take a look at Villas de Santa Fe, which is on the near the road to the ski resort.
