downtown Santa Fe

Lovingly named “The City Different” by locals, Santa Fe was voted the #1 Cultural Getaway by Travel + Leisure magazine; and for the 20th year in a row, Conde Nast readers chose Santa Fe as one of their favorite travel destinations in the U.S. We suggest experiencing the live music, world-class markets, global cuisine and historic landmarks for yourself! 

Most of our favorite area attractions are within walking distance of the Inn, but we also offer complimentary shuttle service to the historic Santa Fe Plaza and Railyard Arts District. Our free shuttle, the “Sage Coach”, leaves the hotel on the hour and picks up at the plaza 10 minutes past each hour.
