Being a Relais & Chateaux hotel, the management and staff at The Inn of the Five Graces have created a property that fits right in with the kind of memorable properties you hear about in Morocco and Bali. The décor differs from the cliché Santa Fe style, yet locals would tell you that this melding of styles is what true Santa Fe style is all about.
The suites have Asian and Latin American antiques and art, kilim rugs, jewel-tone throw pillows, and mosaic-tile bathrooms; most have fireplaces, and many have soaking tubs or walk-in steam showers. The personal service stands out: treats are left on your pillow, refrigerators are stocked, and afternoon margarita and wine-and-cheese spreads, an exquisite breakfast, and even daily walking tours are all available. In the spa treatment room you can book treatments to salve the skin from the high, dry mountain climate.
