Just steps from downtown, La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa is an elegant, upscale hotel with a historic past. In 1882, a prosperous merchant named Abraham Staab built a French Second Empire-style mansion on this site, which now houses the hotel bar. The property was greatly expanded in the 1930s with a series of Pueblo Revival casitas around the original Staab Mansion and carriage house. As a Marriott Tribute hotel, La Posada de Santa Fe pays homage to the Staab family as well as the indigenous cultures and colonial history of the surrounding area.
A luxurious hotel with exceptional amenities, La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa is also committed to the health and wellness of its guests. Spa Sage offers a restful and restorative escape for travelers with a wide-range of massages, facials and salon services.

A heated outdoor pool and hot tub surrounded by six beautifully manicured acres make La Posada a rejuvenating oasis in this unique and dynamic city.
