Named for the city’s patron saint, and holding the all-important distinction of being Santa Fe’s oldest hotel, the St. Francis (which is conveniently located just a block off the plaza) is one of Santa Fe’s many historic landmarks. The design here takes great pains to honor the style of early Franciscan missionary settlers, with features like an antique baptismal font in the lobby, candles along the walkways, and iron crosses hung in the stairwells. The rooms themselves, while small and simply decorated, are decked out with luxury details like Frette sheets, pillowtop mattresses, and marble bathrooms.
