A few blocks from the Plaza, this historic hotel delivers an authentic Southwestern stay. La Posada’s suites and adobe casitas have kiva-style fireplaces and views of northern New Mexico’s undulating clay-colored hills. The Pueblo revival architecture and local paintings and sculptures evoke the artist colony that originally inhabited the building.
Bed & Bath
The 157 casita-style rooms each have their own look, but all retain historic details such as original late-1800s/early-1900s flooring, adobe walls and beam ceilings. The look is Southwestern romance, with buttery leather armchairs, rough-hewn wood tables, kilim pillows and cozy throws perfect for curling up under during Santa Fe’s chilly nights. Modern perks include WiFi, flat-screen TVs and climate controls. Many rooms have wood-burning kiva fireplaces or private patios.
All of the hotel’s amenities exhibit a strong sense of place. Many of the treatments at the expansive spa channel Native American traditions and use indigenous ingredients (think blue cornmeal and tobacco scrubs, cedar oil massages and chocolate chile wraps). The hotel has an on-site curator and offers half-priced rooms for return visits to collectors who purchase works from the collection. The award-winning restaurant serves a global take on New Mexican fare, with dishes like chocolate cherry duck molé with sofrito rice, and New Mexican lamb with red chile honey mint sauce and citrus couscous.
In the Area
Just a few blocks from the Plaza, you’re well situated for exploring Santa Fe. Grab a gallery map from the front desk and head straight into the thick of Santa Fe’s inspiring art scene.

Kokopelli Rafting Adventures arranges full-day river tours on the Rio Grande and its tributaries.
How to Get There
Great hotel. Friendly, competent staff. The food was very good, in the dining room as well as late nice snacks in the bar. Our suite was beautiful, spotless and very inviting
Very nice grounds. The ability to have the hotel car available for short distance was very convenient. Looking forward to staying here again!
This is a very traditional Santa Fe property and is quite nice. The room we had was spacious and well appointed with what we needed. My only complaint would be the mattress was a bit too firm for my liking. The property is very centrally located in Santa Fe and it's easy to walk everywhere you would like to go. We ate several meals at Julia's and always enjoyed it. The staff is all very friendly.
What a wonderful time we had at the hotel and Santa Fe. It was quite a short trip, only one night driving then the next day visiting the historic area, on our road trip, but we’ll come back with our family. The grounds are beautiful and as a Lifetime Titanium Elite we get a breakfast, of course. Last night they had an Irish ☘️ author read a little except from her book and an Irish ☘️ musician, it was quite enjoyable. We also had complementary Beer Tasting. One of the most beats things they had in the resort was the art work!
