5-Star Santa Fe B&B

“I have always wanted to stay at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear so when I came to Santa Fe for Indian Market I made sure I got a reservation (hint: reserve early!). My room was the Ansel Adams room which is perfect for 1-2 people. The room has a private bathroom with shower and is very quiet and very comfortable. The owners have an amazing breakfast spread that can’t be missed! In the afternoon they have a wine happy hour that is a great opportunity to meet and chat with the other guests. I got some great dinner recommendations this way! Also, it’s an easy walk to the Santa Fe Plaza from the B&B. I’ve stayed at several hotels in Santa Fe and I definitely recommend the Inn of the Turquoise Bear.”
