Free Guided Walking Tours Saturdays from Lobby (seasonal)


Once you’ve settled into your room and enjoyed some of what Hotel Chimayó has to offer, make sure to explore the world outside our doors -- Santa Fe, New Mexico. There are many unforgettable things to do in Santa Fe, New Mexico: explore its history, learn about its culture, purchase some of its art and enjoy the many opportunities to get active during your Santa Fe family vacation. Discover the art, the history, the cuisine and the landscapes that made Santa Fe Travel + Leisure “Readers' Choice 2017 Destination of the Year."

Begin by wandering around our Plaza which is just 1/2 block from the hotel and exploring its galleries and museums. Then relax in one of our local restaurants or bars for a taste of fresh, local cuisine, local vintages and specialty microbrews. The Plaza itself plays host to a number of unique events throughout the year, such as the Indian and Spanish markets in the summer or spontaneous band concerts on balmy spring evenings.

Family vacations

If you’re looking for things to do with the kids, take them to our interactive Children’s Museum or give them the chance to learn about our history at the nearby living history museum, El Rancho de las Golondrinas. You can also combine adult and children’s activities by heading for the outdoor sculpture garden on Canyon Road, which the young at heart can enjoy while the older members of your party can enjoy the Canyon Road galleries.

There are also a number of family events in Santa Fe throughout the year, ranging from summer spectator baseball games and free summer movies in the park, to fantastic winter skiing outdoors and ice skating indoors. A number of museums offer children’s activities and art programs, or the entire family can try their hands at making tortillas and red chile sauce at the Santa Fe School of Cooking.

Hotel Chimayó's Santo Niño Family Suites are perfect for your family to enjoy time together and separately. These suites connect with internal stairs to a private living room and include a king bedroom, and double bedroom upstairs with a private balcony.
