They’ll be no shortage of design treats to take in and relish during your stay. (Be sure to take a picture, it will last longer.)

The Watering Hole - La Reina

One of the sweet highlights on the premises is the new addition of La Reina, the hotel’s bar and nooky hangout for both guests and Santa Fe locals; a great way to rub elbows with local culture and taste the thoughtfully designed Agave based cocktail menu, specializing in carefully curated tequilas and mezcals. Look out for the Piña Picante, a jalepeño-infused tequila drink made with mezcal, pineapple, and a chimayó chile salt rim. The bright and comfortable design and architecture allow you to sit back and savor both your surroundings and libations in cool company. And pay attention to the whimsical quotes, artwork, and motto, “Where fast lives slow down.”
