Don’t be surprised if you’re 2 blocks from the plaza in downtown Santa Fe and suddenly think you’ve spotted a Native American Pueblo. That’s the Inn and Spa at Loretto, built in 1975 and styled after the multistory Taos Pueblo, all shadow-catching corners and flat roofs on the outside. Inside, it’s an elegant hotel. Unlike the real Taos Pueblo, the rooms are generously sized, with Native design touches like kiva fireplaces and modern amenities like iPod docks and slate-floored bathrooms. Some units have balconies—especially inviting are the ones on the northeast side with views of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Asis and the Loretto Chapel next door. Spring for a junior suite if you can. The Living Room lounge hosts live music in front of the fireplace Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, the Luminaria restaurant serves upscale Southwestern dishes, and the Living Room Spa offers a long list of high-end treatments. There are also complimentary weekend walking tours of downtown Santa Fe.
