Where to stay in Santa Fe

Though the downtown area contains most of Santa Fe's finest hotels, you can find plenty of equally comfortable inns and motels just outside this busy central district. Remember also that most of the city's centrally located hotels raise their prices during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to look for deals and make reservations well in advance. To experience the true spirit of outdoor New Mexico while on holiday, consider sleeping under the stars at a campground just a short drive from Santa Fe's major urban attractions.

  • If you can't find that special piece of Indian jewelry here, it doesn't exist. The craftsmanship is superb and the selection extensive. The exhibitors are friendly and helpful.  more »

  • First of all, I'm not sure why anyone would hate it as stated below in a previous review. I personally loved it. I went last year in 2016 and had a wonderful time and am planning to go again this year.
  • I can't believe I am writing this post: The SWAIA Staff & Director of THE SANTA FE INDIAN MARKET should be ASHAMED of themselves. Printed in The Santa Fe New Mexican under the Opinion section - my Grandmother Barbara "Tahn-Moo-Whe" Gonzales wrote a piece titled "Indian Market decision leaves potter reeling" which addresses our family not having a booth at The Santa Fe Indian Market for the first time since the 1950's. (Maria Martinez Family) There is no such thing as Modern Indian Art without Traditional Indian Art. Remember where you come from, and who helped get you there. Indian Market took away the Tenure system, this year. My family (Maria & Julian Martinez) & other Pueblo families helped Indian Market become a reality. My Saya (Barbara Gonzales) has donated/volunteered her time and traditional pottery to Indian Market her entire life. The SWAIA board & director has no idea the impact they are having on on our community. Indian Market was created to help sustain the surrounding Pueblo communities. There are so many problems with this situation. SWAIA & Indian Market need to know, they need to remember where they come from, too. I hear & know of many other very important Pueblo families that have also been denied from Indian Market. SWAIA is denying legacies of famous pueblo potters. It is important to not remain quiet about this situation. It is sad that we, younger generations of these same artists who helped make "Indian Market" what is "Indian Market" can reflect on the hypocrisy of The Staff & Director today. SHAME on you SWAIA!
