Ámbit Boulevard

Top choice boutique hotel in Santa Fe

An early-20th-century flour magnate's mansion has been converted into this compact, rather lovely hotel. Exquisitely decorated rooms were each designed as a charity project by different architects; all are charming. Premium category rooms have high ceilings and venerable floorboards, while 'superior' rooms are in the modern upstairs annex but don't lack charm. A little spa-style plunge pool sits between floors.

Guests are given a pass to use a nearby gym.
