Hotel St. Francis

Hotel St. Francis Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 81-room upscale boutique, housed in a historic building two blocks the Santa Fe Plaza, underwent a complete renovation in 2011 and now features simple, mission-style decor inspired by the principles of St. Francis of Assisi. The elegant, minimalist rooms have original wood floors, sturdy wood furniture made by local artisans, and a color scheme of gray and white -- but, as in many historic buildings, they're small. The hotel features a fine dining restaurant serving New Mexican cuisine, as well as a bar with outdoor seating available offering appetizers and cocktails. But there’s no pool or Jacuzzi, and guests will have to pay a daily fee for parking. If a pool is a priority, consider the nearby Inn and Spa at Loretto.
La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa

La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 4-pearl La Posada de Santa Fe is over a hundred years old, making it one of the the city’s longest-standing inns. It has an excellent location near Santa Fe Plaza, and features attractive Southwestern decor throughout. Its 157 rooms have beamed ceilings, coral throws, regional art, and modern tech features; some have patios or kiva-style fireplaces. The upscale Fuego Restaurant earns high marks, and a curator on staff oversees the hotel's $1 million in local art. The property features are impressive: There's a day spa, an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, afternoon tea and cookies, and an outdoor fire where evening s'mores are served. Some rooms are small, however, and there's a nightly resort fee.
La Fonda on the Plaza

La Fonda on the Plaza Rating: 4.0 Pearls

A Santa Fe landmark and the city's oldest hotel, La Fonda on the Plaza offers a classic New Mexican experience in a distinctive pueblo-style building filled with Native American and Southwestern art. The hotel's wealth of amenities include a year-round outdoor pool, full-service spa, boutique shops, and fine-dining restaurant. An additional perk: All of the top local attractions are within walking distance. While La Fonda rates are higher than comparable properties farther from the city center, a stay here is ideal for tourists who want a slice of vintage New Mexico and a choice location in the heart of Santa Fe.
Inn of the Governors

Inn of the Governors Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Inn of the Governors is an competitively priced upper-mid-range hotel three blocks from the Plaza. Colorful Santa Fe-style decor gives the rooms and interior spaces a cozy, authentic feel, and the hopping Del Charro Saloon attracts the locals and serves tasty eats. A free breakfast buffet, afternoon tea and sherry, and free covered parking all add good value to this charming hotel -- and the heated outdoor pool and Jacuzzi are nice perks (though the pool is on the small side).
El Rey Inn

El Rey Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

One of Santa Fe's most famous hotels, the El Rey Inn is a genuine slice of vintage New Mexico. Situated within a 10-minute drive of Santa Fe Plaza on the original Route 66, the El Rey is a throwback to the days of cross-country travel and motor inns. Housed in an adobe-style building erected in 1936 and several other newer wings, this mid-range hotel offers 86 Southwestern-style rooms, all with free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs; some have kitchens and kiva fireplaces. A large outdoor pool is open in the warm months, and the hotel also has two hot tubs, a sauna, fitness room, and free breakfast (except in January and February). The El Rey offers retro charm, an array of amenities, and lower rates than at the more lavish and centrally located Santa Fe hotels.
El Paradero Bed and Breakfast Inn

El Paradero Bed and Breakfast Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 200-year-old El Paradero Bed and Breakfast Inn offers a setting that’s historic and charming, appealing to couples looking for a Southwestern romantic retreat. Cozy folk art decorates sitting rooms, adobe garden terraces, and a lovely breakfast room that features a kiva fireplace. The 15 colorful and thoughtfully designed rooms here feature Santa Fe decor, with suites offering kitchenettes. Still, most spaces don’t have TVs and some can feel small. More spacious rooms with TVs can be found at the nearby (and slightly pricier) Inn of the Turquoise Bear.
Inn of the Turquoise Bear

Inn of the Turquoise Bear Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Inn of the Turquoise Bear is a romantic desert oasis that’s rich in history with a central Old Santa Fe Trail location. Attracting mostly couples, the bed-and-breakfast is a national historic site and features charming adobe designs, one acre of pueblo courtyards, and an elegant dining room. The 11 rooms have unique Southwestern designs, kiva fireplaces, private patios, and flat-screen TVs. But a few guests complain that some bathrooms, which feature outdated furnishings, are in need of renovations.
