New location in 2025

As one of the most renowned resorts in Santa Fe, the rich history of the Southwest meets modern amenities and upscale touches at La Posada de Santa Fe. Set on six beautifully landscaped acres just steps from the historic Plaza, La Posada is the only resort in downtown Santa Fe. Authentic adobe-style architecture, unique accommodations, award-winning service, tranquil spa escapes, culinary discoveries, and a subtle sense of Southwestern magic and charm come together to create the ultimate New Mexico getaway.

Adorned with Southwestern art and accented with traditional Santa Fe craftsmanship, accommodations at La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa are some of the most beautiful and unique among Santa Fe Plaza hotels. More of a village than a typical hotel, La Posada de Santa Fe is comprised of 157 lovingly restored casita-style rooms and suites, some dating back more than 230 years. Every casita is different, as they reflect the resort’s historic roots with features like original adobe walls and traditional viga (exposed beam) and latilla (exposed wood slat) ceilings. Most guest rooms have original hardwood or Saltillo tile floors or carpeting.  

Find your home away from home in New Mexico at La Posada de Santa Fe, where historic charm and modern amenities coexist, ensuring an experience that’s filled with regional character and the utmost comfort.
