We found this property searching the Internet. What a find! It is a few miles from the Plaza on the original Route 66. The property has gardens, fountains, mini-parks and great landscaping. The pool is terrific and the rooms are totally up to snuff. Perfect for a family - or a honeymoon. The El Rey was built in the middle 1930's as an original Route 66 Motor Inn.
It was a pleasant surprise that the El Rey is considered one of the five historic hotels of Santa Fe. And it lives up to the billing. Another pleasant surprise was the restaurant next door - The Pantry. No need to drive elsewhere for some of the best meals in Santa Fe.
