Fodor's Expert Review Palacio de Marquesa

405 Cordoba Rd., Taos, New Mexico, 87571, USA Fodor's Choice

Tile hearths, French doors, and traditional viga ceilings grace this sophisticated inn whose rooms stand out from the pack for their clean, uncluttered looks, posh linens, and decor inspired by female artists of local acclaim, from modernist Agnes Martin to transplanted British aristocrat Dorothy Brett. The grand 1912 structure, which underwent a major renovation and rebranding in 2014, is set behind thick walls and located a 10-minute walk from the plaza. Each room has a private entrance and fireplace, marble bath, flat-screen TV, and plush robes. All rooms overlook the gardens, and perks include made-to-order breakfasts (which you can enjoy in the warmly furnished living room or have delivered to your room) and French press coffee on request. Guests can also access the spa and other deluxe amenities at the nearby sister property, El Monte Sagrado.
