Best Hotels: Love art? La Posada de Santa Fe, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa is the place for you. Walls at the self-proclaimed "Art Hotel of Santa Fe" are adorned with works by established American artists and they're all for sale - there's even an on-site curator. The newest addition to the Starwood Luxury Collection is built around an old mansion. You may even meet Julia Staab, the original lady of this 1880s house. Some say her benevolent spirit walks the halls at night. The quirky Santa Fe-style casitas, built in the 1930s and 40s to house artists, provide unique guest accommodations; many have wood-burning fireplaces. Six lush acres provide an urban retreat just blocks from the city's bustling Plaza. 'LaPo's' Staab House Bar is a popular spot to grab a drink and listen to music. In warm weather, the outdoor dining patio's the place to be.
