“For smaller groups, your attendees will feel special and personally attended to at any of ourfull-servicehotels, as our largest hotel is still on the boutique side with just over 200 guest rooms.For larger groups, they can truly ‘book the city’ for their meeting, utilizing a walkable network of hotels and the Santa Fe Community Convention Center, all located within the historic Santa Fe Plaza area.”

5 Fantastic Places to Meet

5 Reasons Meeting Profs Love New Mexico

  • It’s a major tourist draw. Every year, thousands of travelers come to New Mexico to explore its colorful markets, its vibrant mix of cultures (Native American, Spanish, Mexican and more) and its hotels, spas and restaurants. Centering your meeting in New Mexico means the “enchantment” never stops and attendees are treated to vacation-style experiences while getting business done.
  • It has a mix of sophistication and old-world charm. Big towns like Albuquerque and the state capital of Santa Fe have both a modern, cutting- edge buzz and old-school charm. Where else in the US could you visit Georgia O’Keefe’s ranch, balloon over ancient landscapes and meet in state-of-the-art convention centers in one place?
  • Its hotels and restaurants are destinations in themselves. From boutique gems like The Inn of the Anasazi or La Fonda in Santa Fe to the Santa Fe School of cooking where groups can get hands-on with red hot chili peppers, to finding yourself rubbing shoulders at a local cantina with regulars like Ali McGraw or Tom Ford, attendees at a New Mexico meeting will find upscale pleasures await them at every part of the meeting experience.
  • The great outdoors. Bring your group on mule back to the mountains surrounding Santa Fe and dine alfresco with cowboy coffee and champagne. Or rent a famous New Mexican hot air balloon for an afternoon outing in the sky.
  • Easy access. Delta, American, United and JetBlue all fly direct to Albuquerque (ABQ) Airport, which has over 60 domestic flights arriving daily. Albuquerque is also a short hour and five-minute drive from Santa Fe’s town center.
