La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa, a RockResort, will complete a $6.2 million dollar renovation this May 2008, inviting travelers to experience the new additional restaurant and updated luxury amenities.
The extensive redesign will enhance all 157 guest rooms including 30 signature suites, public spaces, the RockResorts Spa, the historic Staab House and dining venues. As part of the interior design plan, the resort partnered with the Museum of New Mexico Foundation to incorporate indigenous fabrics and prints that will be featured in guest rooms and public spaces. In the lobby, individual desk stations will replace the traditional check-in counter. Additional lobby seating will invite guests to socialize and enjoy one of the resort’s wine selections, listen to native flute players who perform each week, or admire the vibrant paintings that adorn the walls courtesy of Santa Fe’s Peyton Wright art gallery.
For an educational lobby experience, history buff Alan Osborne provides Santa Fe history and culture lectures, while the director emeritus of the Museum of Fine Arts, Bob Ewing, offers Santa Fe art sessions.
The restaurant, Fuego, La Posada will introduce an additional culinary venue, Viga restaurant. Viga will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. Fuego, which will only serve dinner, will also be upgraded with new furniture including leather seating, elegant fabrics of sage green, gold and rose, and dark wood accents. A new street entrance will allow for easy access by neighborhood residents. La Posada’s 157 guest rooms will offer new soft goods and furniture including new beds with white duvet bedding, cozy lounge chairs, desks and nightstands in antiqued sand wood, refinished wood flooring, rugs and window treatments, and flatscreen LCD televisions.
Each of the resort’s rooms is distinct in layout, but all will feature a brightened look and feel with patterned carpets and traditional Santa Fe colors of terra cotta and light sage. The four guest rooms located in the Staab House will be kept in a Victorian style with new bedding, rugs and window treatments. This includes the infamous Julia Staab suite, which is said to still be inhabited by its former owner’s spirit. Guests will be able to unwind at the 4,500-square-foot RockResorts Spa, featuring a redesigned relaxation area with plush chaise lounges, drapery dividers to maximize privacy and a glass wall featuring a rippled water visual effect.
