Inn of the Five Graces

150 E. DeVargas St.
Santa Fe , NM , United States
(505) 992-0957

This happily over-the-top, 24-suite compound has a Thousand and One Nights aesthetic, so minimalists beware: the units here, which occupy vintage adobe buildings along a short stretch of the city's oldest street, are all whimsically cluttered with ornate bric-a-brac, tapestries, and tiles from Turkey, China, Mexico, and other exotic destinations. All have king or queen beds with lavishly hand-carved or -woven headboards and a mix of Oriental, Persian, and Native American rugs and tapestries; most also have wood-burning fireplaces, wet-bar kitchens, and mosaic-bedecked bathrooms with super-deep soaking tubs or steam showers. Rates include perks like complimentary refreshments—juices, pâté, and cheese—that are restocked every day, and ample breakfasts and afternoon wine-and-cheese gatherings in the Pink Adobe’s wine cellar (or, when weather allows, in the adobe-wall courtyard). Staffers here are super-solicitous; if you have any questions about the property or things to do around town, just ask.

Tip: The adjacent and much-hyped Pink Adobe restaurant is overrated (although the Dragon Room is worth a stop for drinks).

Room to Book: The secluded Luminaria House is an impossibly sumptuous two-bedroom casita with a circular two-level sitting room, a full kitchen and dining area, and numerous balconies and patio nooks—one warmed by an outdoor fireplace.
