The American South West is known for its sublime landscapes ranging from mountains to beautiful deserts, the palpable Native American influence on art and culture, and of course, for geographical landmarks like the Grand Canyon.
Nestled in the heart of the American South West, however, are hotels ranging from massive resorts in Las Vegas to unique boutique hotels in thriving desert towns.
Inn of the Five Graces
In the heart of Santa Fe, New Mexico sits the Inn of the Five Graces, potentially one of the most unique hotels that tourists to the American Southwest might ever experience.
A highly rated stay, the Inn of the Five Graces has been topping the country’s best hotel lists for years. Santa Fe is often called “The Different City,” and this hotel explains why. Located in the historic Barrio de Analco neighborhood, which happens to be the oldest inhabited city in America, this hotel is built out of traditional adobe material and stone. Each room in the hotel is unique, and inspired by the textured, tiled, colorful aesthetic of the native people of the region.
With a Tibetan inspired spa, stone courtyards with lush foliage and fountains, and a 24-hour concierge service, this unique space is in the heart of one of the coolest cities in the U.S. to explore.
Rates at the Inn of the Five Graces begin around $700 per night.
