The Historic Hotel St. Francis

Built in 1923, the original De Vargas Hotel was renovated in 1986 and renamed The
Hotel Saint Francis.  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.
