Last week, I went to Santa Fe for work. I’m hoping this is one of my last work trips because traveling with an extra load (a la a baby bump) isn’t the most glamorous. I stayed at La Posada de Santa Fe and took a few pictures one morning when it was raining. New Mexico rain is the best. It smells the best and always cools down the city. That, or I’ve been living in Arizona way too long and don’t know what a real rainstorm is anymore.
I can’t say La Posada de Santa Fe is the most luxurious hotel I have ever stayed at, so don’t let the Luxury Collection sign on the door fool you: This is not a traditional luxury resort. But if you’re looking for an authentic Santa Fe experience, this is the place for you. The adobe guest rooms, the history, the kiva fireplaces and the art (oh, the art! It’s all over the walls) … it’s a very charming resort.
