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
Enjoyed our stay. Staff was very accommodating., The room was not totally comfortable: bed looked/seemed soft, but did not sleep well. Tried to adjust the heat, but couldn't (too warm at night). Inn was well located.Right in the heart of the downtown.
Stayed 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary. Comfortable beds and nice size room has great ambiance with the gas fireplace and exposed wood beams in the ceiling. Staff were friendly and always ready to assist with anything we needed. Restaurant and bar onsite had great food and margaritas. Location can’t be beat 1/2 block from the plaza and all the shops and restaurants in downtown Santa Fe.
My wife and I enjoyed three nights at the Inn during the week of Thanksgiving. Everything was perfect. Our room was spacious, stylish and impeccably clean. The location is ideal for any purpose. Most importantly, the staff at all levels was gracious, accommodating and professional. Thank you!
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in early November 2018. The hotel is in a perfect location just of the main square in downtown Santa Fe. My degree is in Restaurant Hotel and Institutional Management so I am not the easiest person to please.
The service was impeccable. The checkin process was flawless and very fast. We were escorted to our very spacious room with a large private balancing. The room was very well appointed with the expected southwestern theme. It had a fire place with a sitting area. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was spacious with double vanity’s and a great selection of high end toiletries.
The turn down service each night had a different treat and amenity.
The bar is fabulous with great service. Shout to George the bar manager who created some awesome concoctions that he created.
If you are going to Santa Fe you need to stay at the Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi!
