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.

Kokopelli Rafting Adventures arranges full-day river tours on the Rio Grande and its tributaries.
How to Get There
Used Marriott points to book a room 4 me & my sister travelling from Maryland & I from California for our yearly get together. Rin, I think was her name, thought she was giving us a wonderful room, NOT!! The room was very dark, spider web with spider in bathroom. Coffee maker broken, window latch broken, drain sink broken. $30 per day resort fee 4 what$$
Would not stay at this hotel again. All the hotels in downtown Santa Fe apparently need to be remodeled after reading other reviews. Seems they don't care just bring in the money. Sad, Sad, Sad Marriott Points system should be ashamed. Again they don't care, just bring in the money. Oh yes they have the location, that's it.
We spend 4 nights here for a college reunion. The property is lovely. It is near the square and several nice restaurants. Their shuttle is also easy to use for many of the local attractions and restaurants. The staff is cordial and helpful. The room was well appointed but showed its age. (One of the few second floor rooms, and the plumbing was a bit hinky). We asked not to have a second floor room due to both a pet and a bicycle, but the front desk would not change it. It was also one of the few rooms without an outdoor space to sit and enjoy the evening. Seeing as all 40+ of us were paying the same rate for a room, it seemed a bit arbitrary to me and did taint our stay a bit.
Overall, I am giving this 4. I will provide some detail:
Valet Parking: 5. Friendly, courteous, fast.
Location: 5. It is a short walk to town square.
Shuttle: SUV shuttle will take you anywhere around town. A 5.
Dining: 3. Waitstaff somewhat confused by Bonvoy breakfast coupon. Waitstaff very friendly. Had dinner there once...part of entree was burn’t.
Property: 5... beautiful grounds.
A 3. Friendly enough, but room was missed one day, no big deal so I asked for towels...waited 45 minutes, never came. Gave front desk a note requesting a call from the GM...never heard from him, so note wasn’t passed to him or he really didn’t care. I am a lifetime plat, so is it too much to get some towels when my room isn’t cleaned....ticked me off.
Will I return...probably. Will I consider other hotels in Santa Fe...probably.
