Accommodations Highlights in New Mexico
La Fonda on the Plaza
Step into the past and experience the splendor of the American Southwest at La Fonda on the Plaza, the only Santa Fe hotel situated on the historic Santa Fe Plaza. Experience the allure of old world charm, where tasteful, modern conveniences blend with the warmth of authentic New Mexican style. Vibrant decor and authentic New Mexican architecture intermingle with indulgent amenities and each of the beautifully appointed guestrooms present an opportunity to experience the elegance of the property, boasting original artwork and hand-crafted furniture.
The Old Taos Guesthouse Inn
Nestled amid a grove of stately old Taos cottonwoods and spruce, the Old Taos Guesthouse Inn began as an adobe home built over 200 years ago. Situated on 7.5 acres on a rise overlooking Taos, the small home grew into a beautiful bed and breakfast hacienda with a rich and colorful history. Throughout the century it evolved from a farmer’s home to an artist’s estate and then to a guesthouse in the 1940s. Almost 50 years later it was rescued from deterioration and lovingly restored in the Southwestern tradition. Relax with a book in the cool shade under the large veranda or in the evening, experiencing a fiery Taos sunset from their gardens. Quiet spots and enchanting views are easy to find on the spacious grounds, a birder’s paradise.
