There are so many hotels to choose from in Santa Fe, New Mexico, but I was particularly drawn to the elegant modern design and optimal location of Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi. Just steps from the historic plaza at the center of Santa Fe, Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi offers all the comforts of home with a southwestern flair.
Established in 1979, Rosewood manages a collection of 18 luxury hotels and resorts worldwide. Led by young CEO Sonia Cheng, Rosewood has recently refreshed its brand under the new motto:“A Sense of Place – A personal journey of authentic and exquisite discoveries.”
I was so excited when I walked into my room at the Inn – the team of Rosewood has really thought of everything. The giant king sized bed was topped with a plush comforter, piles of soft white pillows and authentic southwestern textiles. On the side of the bed, was a beautiful desk, perfect for catching up on emails in the morning over a cup of tea (also provided!). The gas fireplace was perfectly poised with two cozy chairs in front, just waiting for me to curl up with a good book. Finally, the bathroom had a massive bathtub complete with complimentary lavender bath salts. And of course, there were robes and slippers available as well as snacks and other goodies in the mini bar.
Turn-down service also went above and beyond, with complimentary cookies laid out on my pillow, soothing music turned on the radio, and even a humidifier set out by the fireplace to fight off the dry air.
The Inn has two beautiful library rooms on the main floor that guests can relax in at any time of day. Early in the morning, they serve complimentary tea and coffee here for guests.
The Anasazi Restaurant
I had a delectable meal at the Anasazi Restaurant the night I spent at the Inn. Like all other spaces in the hotel, the room was exquisitely designed in a relaxed, yet modern take on traditional southwestern style. The service was also top notch. During warmer months, the restaurant also offers outdoor patio seating.
Anasazi Bar & Lounge
Just off the restaurant, the Anasazi Bar & Lounge is the perfect place to enjoy a Silver Coin margarita and indulge in some Para Picar, or small plates. On Saturday nights, live musicians play in the bar starting at 7 pm.
If you have time, the hotel offers in-room massage and aromatherapy services which I’m sure are divine.
