The Hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has a unique charm created by the combination of European style and distinctly Southwestern elements such as clay tile floors and wrought iron chandeliers. The Hotel is centrally located, a block from the main plaza. Complimentary parking is provided and the hotel is handicap accessible. Santa Fe Founded by the Spanish in 1610 on the ancient ruins of a Tewa Indian pueblo, Santa Fe's 300 year history is rich with cultural and artistic diversity and depth. At the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, today Santa Fe represents the heart of a beautiful high desert region that still reflects the spirit animating Native American and Hispanic life, as well as the work of such writers and artists as Willa Cather, D. H. Lawrence, Mary Austin, and Georgia O'Keefe. Of special interest in Santa Fe is the Santa Fe Opera, and reservations should be made as soon as possible through the Opera Box Office, (505) 982-3855. In addition, visitors to Santa Fe will enjoy the Fine Art Museum, the Palace of the Governors, as well as the spectacular "High Road to Taos" and the many occupied Indian pueblos and Anasazi archaeological sites within a short distance of the city. Santa Fe is well known for its thriving gallery community and its fine New Mexican cuisine. Santa Fe is 60 miles by car from a major airport at Albuquerque, and connecting flights are available. At 7000 feet, summer temperatures in Santa Fe are generally moderate.
