The Luxx Boutique Hotel sits quietly downtown in the heart of Santa Fe’s world-class hotel landscape. Just sixteen rooms nestled on Marcy Street behind Santa Fe-vorites Izmi Sushi and Ecco Gelato, the Luxx provides a blend of tech-savvy amenities and Santa Fe charm. Asian statues offer a peaceful greeting inside the cleanly decorated, well lit lobby; cream, orange, and honey colors brighten the atmosphere while soft music and the chirps of birds whisk away preoccupations. Somehow the old-world, Zen-like moment fluidly transitions into urban chic furniture, a drum set, and contemporary ink drawings. European style stonework accents the lobby, extending into the guest rooms that continue the seamless integration of European, Eastern, and contemporary styles.
Each designer rooms feature a fridge & freezer, microwave, free WiFi, a flat screen HDTV, Netflix, BluRay DVD, and cable, never stealing from the room’s elegant appointments. Guests can luxuriate with rain shower heads, organic bath products, and custom tile work, furthering the departure from life’s pesky details. Nestled behind the hotel, guests can also relax in the open lounge and outdoor patio that features fountains, a hot tub and a grill.
Downtown parking is always tight, but that’s not an issue at the Luxx – they offer 24 hour secure and covered parking – forget about the car and walk to Santa Fe’s historic plaza, shopping, museums, galleries, and world-class restaurants, all just within two blocks. Pets may also enjoy the downtown hotel as complimentary dog biscuits await them in the lobby.
While the boutique rooms and lobby differentiate them from other hotels, it’s the staff interaction that accentuates why Luxx Hotel deserves the discriminating traveler’s attention. Friendly, gracious and approachable employees wait to assist in making the most of the Santa Fe experience.
