St. Francis Hotel


My favorite hotel in Santa Fe is the St. Francis.(I also love the historic La Fonda).

History: The Hotel St. Francis, just a block off the Plaza, is the oldest hotel in Santa Fe. Recently renovated, The Hotel St. Francis is on the National Register of Historical Places and is a member of Historic Hotels of America. Recent renovation has given it a monastic theme. The staircase leading from the lobby is austere but beautiful. The rosary focuses on the religious history and heritage of New Mexico.

To learn more about this delightful hotel and to see more photos, check their website here.

  3. We usually stay at La Fonda, although last trip we stayed at the inn and Spa at Loretto Chapel. Both are wonderful and their locations so near the Plaza are excellent. Based on your recommendation, I guess we should look into the St. Francis next trip.

  8. Beautiful, Kate. Have you had an opportunity to have breakfast on their small walled patio in the back? Thanks for reminding me of this special place, and yes, I can imagine it was hard to leave....
