Bottom Line

One of Santa Fe's most famous hotels, El Rey Court was once a genuine slice of vintage New Mexico that's now a sharp boutique property. Situated within a 10-minute drive of Santa Fe Plaza on the original Route 66, the hotel is housed in an adobe-style building erected in 1936. The 86 contemporary Southwestern-style rooms all have free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs and the most romantic even include kiva fireplaces. A large outdoor pool is open in the warm months, and the hotel also has a fireside hot tub, sauna, and trendy little bar serving artisanal tequila and mezcal. The El Rey offers charm, an array of amenities, and lower rates than at the more lavish and centrally located Santa Fe hotels. But you're still getting plenty of style here.

El Rey Court

Location

On historic Route 66, a 10-minute drive from Santa Fe Plaza    

El Rey Court is on Cerrillos Road, which was once part of the original Route 66. Restaurants, shopping centers, and the Santa Fe University of Art and Design are all within walking distance. The El Rey is about a 10-minute drive southwest of Santa Fe Plaza, the heart of Santa Fe, which hosts markets, public gatherings, and annual events. A short stroll from the plaza are such attractions as the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, Loretto Chapel, the New Mexico Museum of Art, and the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. The hotel is a five-minute drive southwest of the South Capitol commuter rail station, and a 15-minute drive northeast of Santa Fe Municipal Airport.
