Tap into Santa Fe’s thriving arts scene and soak up its distinctive Pueblo-style architecture at these must-stay hotels and characterful, converted haciendas in the New Mexico capital – bookable on Culture Trip.

Santa Fe is one of few places where you can experience the rich interplay of Native American, Spanish and frontier culture. For a small, easy-to-navigate city, New Mexico’s capital offers an overwhelming number of things to see and do – from taking in the art of Georgia O’Keeffe to riding the Rio Grande rapids, hiking and skiing. These hotels showcase the best of Santa Fe style, a timeless aesthetic inspired by the diverse landscapes and cultures of the Southwest.

The Sage effortlessly combines classic Santa Fe style (raw beams, beehive fireplaces, chili pepper strings) with modern boho chic (macramé wall hangings, potted succulents and minimalist furnishings). The result is an airy, restful retreat, just across the street from the trendy Railyard District and six blocks from the historic Plaza. Don’t feel like walking? The hotel offers a free shuttle service. You can also unwind at in-house Social Kitchen + Bar, which serves Southwestern comfort food like spinach and bacon quesadillas, and burgers topped with green chili and monterey jack cheese.

Step inside the traditional adobe facade and you’re immediately transported to a royal caravan along the old Silk Road. Every detail of this 25-room hotel has been lovingly decorated by owner-artist Sylvia Seret, using lush textures and patterns from Central and East Asia – kilim rugs, embroidered Uzbek curtains, antique Indian screens, and mosaics worthy of a Roman bath. Shimmering silks pull aside to reveal modern flat-screen TVs, and the rich fragrance of piñon pine emanates from the crackling fireplace – there’s one in every room – reminding you that this Land of Enchantment is deeply rooted in the American Southwest.

The original Hotel Santa Fe, next door to its more upscale sister, La Hacienda, also pays tribute to the owners’ Native American culture. Art is everywhere – hand-painted Hopi Kachina dolls peek from alcoves, bronze sculptures grace the courtyard, and every wall spotlights bright canvases. You can also purchase local arts and crafts at the hotel gift shop. Although fine paintings, ceramics and textiles are displayed in every room, you won’t feel like you’re sleeping in a museum, thanks to soft leather chairs, rustic pine furnishings and cozy Navajo blankets.
