With atmospheric Spanish Colonial hotels steeped in history, spa resorts with gorgeous lounges, and more than a few small inns with fireplace-warmed living rooms, Santa Fe and the surrounding mountains and high desert abound with lodgings that have common areas and landscaped grounds every bit as inviting as the guest rooms. Here are some of the best hotels for relaxing amid the grounds.

This beautiful, 70-acre spa resort on the far south side of Santa Fe offers a wonderful mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, the most appealing of which overlook a natural pond.

Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi

Why it made the list
