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
True Santa Fe style and hospitality! The food was truly a standout here, as was the friendliness of EVERY employee working at this hotel. Very quiet rooms and public areas. Great location one block off of the Plaza. Pure zen!
Hotel is conveniently located near the downtown plaza. Staff is as nice and accommodating as any I have ever experienced. We ordered in room dining with a special, non-menu request. They didn’t hesitate to prepare it and it was delicious. Oh, the rooms are spacious and nice and the daily turn-down and cleanup are spotless. Thumbs up!
All services were exceptional. The front door staff, bar staff, restaurant staff, check in staff, room staff, all of them appeared genuinely interested in insuring we had a great stay at 'their' hotel.
Top notch location right near the historic Santa Fe plaza, and a phenomenal service team. My husband and I stayed here last minute due to our own booking error on an air bnb reservation and it turned out to be the best mistake ever since we ended up at the rosewood for two nights! We even stayed an extra night because we loved the place so much. Highly recommend!
Honestly, I travel a great deal and am rarely really impressed with hotels. Reasonable service, convenient location, and clean and comfortable beds and I'm usually good.
Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi exceeded every expectation. Very warm and inviting staff, the room decor (especially the fireplace) was cozy and warm, the location superb for access to most Santa Fe has to offer downtown, and the bar/restaurant was a true destination mixed with both tourists and locals.
I would certainly stay here again without hesitation.
