Trip to Santa Fe, Pt. 1

Recently I attended the annual UCDA Design Summit in Santa Fe, New Mexico. For sparking my creativity at work (and at home), this conference was just what I needed. Today's post focuses on the host hotel, The Inn and Spa at Loretto.

Rarely do I gush about a facility, but this place definitely had it going AND night!

The hotel was clean, well-appointed, and the staff was on top of their game at every level.

The room was pretty incredible, too. Spacious and comfortable, it was a great place to relax in between sessions.

A lovely balcony provided a great view of the snow(!) that appeared on our second day there.

I made sure I took advantage of the spa services and thoroughly enjoyed them.

Unlike many hotels, the in-house restaurant was fantastic.

The chef, Marc Quiñones, had done a great job with the menu and I enjoyed every meal I ate there.

Despite the chilly temperatures, I enjoyed swimming in the heated pool!

Ken - I believe it was the Blue Corn Steak & Enchiladas Filet Mignon. And it was tasty!
