BETHESDA, MD—Tribute Portfolio, part of Marriott International, Inc., has debuted in New Mexico with the addition of La Posada de Santa Fe, a Tribute Portfolio Resort & Spa.
The hotel has 157 distinct guestrooms, each decorated in a Southwestern style but with no two rooms designed the same. The property features authentic adobe-style architecture and diverse dining options.
“The renowned architecture and landscape of Santa Fe provide a perfect backdrop for our first Tribute Portfolio resort in the American Southwest,” said Lori Strasberg, VP, global brand management for Tribute Portfolio. “La Posada de Santa Fe is an ideal fit for the brand, providing guests with a true sense of place, an immersion in local art and a decidedly independent experience in a remarkable destination.”
Located on six sprawling acres in the heart of Santa Fe, which is steps from the historic downtown plaza and Canyon Road, the hotel is known as “The Art Hotel of Santa Fe” for its historic role in exhibiting the work of local artists long before any galleries were established, according to the brand. Today, La Posada de Santa Fe maintains a professionally curated gallery of American art. Channeling the spirit of the Southwest, these pieces—each offered for sale at the hotel—are meant to complement the rustic charm of the resort.
Other amenities include the Spa Sage, the resort’s full-service spa providing an array of healing treatments, facials, massage therapy, and body treatments, among others.
Dining options include Julia, a Spirited Restaurant & Bar, which serves locally inspired dishes; the Staab House, which offers signature cocktails and bar fare in a setting with a patio and fireside seating; and the Patio Restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks and has outdoor seating.
All Tribute Portfolio properties feature a selection of #independentmoments: distinct design touches and experiences that illustrate what guests love about “staying independent,” according to the brand. The #independentmoments for La Posada de Santa Fe include the following:
Bright Blue Doors: Traditional New Mexican lore holds that blue doors both welcome guests and guard against evil spirits; doorways throughout the resort display this vibrant color.
Juliarita Margarita: The resort’s signature cocktail is named after Julia Staab, with ingredients inspired by and made from apricots that still grow on a tree planted in the 1880s by Julia.
Colorful Gardens: The resort is located on six landscaped acres, featuring plants indigenous to the region and foliage that changes with every season.
Tapestries: Located in the casita-style rooms, these Southwestern-inspired tapestries hang along the original adobe walls.
Tribute Portfolio is set for continued growth within the U.S., adding additional independent, upper-upscale hotels and resorts in Tampa, FL; Denver; San Diego; St. Louis; and Houston to the collection. The brand has also expanded its global presence, with two new properties in Singapore and Bali.
