Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi
What We Love
- Friendly concierges who can point you toward not just the city’s fine dining restaurants but also its best dives for green chile cheeseburgers
- A location right off the plaza and within walking distance of many of Santa Fe’s top spots
- Inspired takes on traditional New Mexican food at the hotel restaurant
What To Know
- Rooms can be on the small side, making them tough to share
- There’s no pool or spa — this is a hotel as home base, a place to set out from rather than hole up in
- The small bar makes a mean margarita but isn’t a particularly lively scene

The chicest take on Santa Fe style around. The adobe lobby is warmed by a flagstone fireplace and given pizzazz by potted cactuses and leather armchairs, while the restaurant banquettes are made of Indian blankets, and the cozy library is chock-a-block with Spanish-colonial-style furniture. The staff looks completely at home here in Western shirts and cowboy hats.
Bed and Bath
The rooms are stylish but can feel a bit tight. The 300-square-foot standard rooms are dominated by four-poster King beds so high you almost need a stepstool to climb into them. The beds are terrifically comfortable but don’t leave space for much besides an armoire, night table, and cow-print chaise. Bathrooms are likewise lovely but compact, sometimes with just one sink, and come with the Lady Primrose bath products found at many Rosewood hotels.
The Anasazi restaurant is a destination in its own right. Executive chef Juan Bochenski was raised in Argentina and trained in Australia and London, but he shows tremendous fluency with native New Mexican ingredients: Green chile “caviar” adds depth to duck enchiladas molé with pico de gallo and cilantro sour cream, and a green chile–almond crust enlivens Atlantic salmon. On warm nights, the courtyard bar is a lovely place to whet the appetite with a nicely piquant Gold or Silver Coin margarita.
In the Area
The hotel is just steps from the Santa Fe Plaza and Palace of the Governors, where Indian jewelers sell their wares. The gallery scene on Canyon Road is a half-mile away, and art lovers can get more culture on at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, dedicated to the artist’s work when her career reached its peak in New Mexico. Some of the city’s best New Mexican food is at the Shed (get the red chile cheese enchiladas with an egg), while the old-timey saloon ambience at the Palace’s bar can’t be beat.
How to Get There
Rooms were clean, hotel had a nice balance between modern and traditional, staff were very pleasant, location is excellent. One side of the hotel is quieter than the other (when windows are open. When closed, no difference).
All staff was super helpful and personalized to our needs. Great location in historic district. Our only disappointment was our room was small and they have no pool or hot tub. We also enjoyed the food and restaurant staff very much!
Special place, perfect location. The hotel is located right in the heart of the city. Easy walk to museums and restaurants. Get the breakfast package, has plenty of delicious choices. The decorum is stylish But the customer service is what you’ll remember most. Special shout out to Maria!
Loved, loved, loved my stay at this beautiful hotel. I am an artist and decided to try the Anasazi during one of my workshop visits at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. My stay at this hotel could not have been easier for me. Great valet parking, a must in old Santa Fe, wonderful restaurant both in room and at the dining room, lovely service personnel, from the front desk, to housekeeping to valet. I have another artist retreat in July and have already booked the Anasazi for that stay as well. I am a big fan of Rosewood properties and the Anasazi meets and exceeds Rosewood's standards.
This is a great place for drinks after a day of shopping. Their signature drinks are always super tasty and their wine list is great as well. You can sit on the patio if the weather is good or inside the cozy bar if the weather does not cooperate.
