Why Stay At Hotel St. Francis
Santa Fe's mission-style Hotel St. Francis is within walking distance of the historic plaza, the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, and the Palace of the Governors.
Though this 81-room hotel is set just one block from Santa Fe's main plaza, it's as if the calming spirit of St. Francis, the hotel's namesake and the patron saint of the city, has cast a serene spell on this historic hideaway. Yes, there's the Spicy Secreto, the Secreto Bar's signature cocktail comprised of Cabana Cachaca, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, cucumber, and jalapeno; otherwise, the mood throughout the Mission-style property is decidedly quiet, thanks to tiered chandeliers and cast-iron wall scones that create a tranquil, romantic feel. Rooms are equally as subdued, with rough-hewn floors and weathered wood furnishings, all of which was crafted by local artisans using traditional methods from Mexico and Spain.
Secreto Bar's mixologist, Chris Milligan, uses fresh fruits and vegetables to craft unique cocktails like the Cucumber Collins or gin-based Basil-ica, which incorporates for fresh basil.
Don't miss the daily high tea, when chef Estevan, a former Franciscan monk, serves goat milk flan and pastelles de tres leches (a moist Mexican cake).
Arrive at Santa Fe Municipal Airport (SAF) which is approximately 12 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 25 minutes of travel time.210 Don Gaspar Avenue, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States

Why We Love Santa Fe
