Here, utter simplicity is an exacting art
Santa Fe, NM (Vocus) October 15, 2009
Hotel St. Francis has completed an exciting renovation and is now the newest cultural hotel to be offered by Heritage Hotels & Resorts ®. Join in the Grand Re-Opening Year-Long Celebration Special. Hotel St. Francis is inspired by the early presence of the Franciscan missionaries and their significant contributions to New Mexico. It has been reintroduced in a style where peace and tranquility are the key underlying elements. In a world where our minds are often cluttered with vast amounts of information, technology and complexity, the Hotel St. Francis is meant to be a place of contrast. “Here, utter simplicity is an exacting art” says Jim Long, CEO of Heritage Hotels and Resorts.
The new restaurant, Tabla de Los Santos, features exquisite food made from fresh, organic, local and seasonal ingredients served in an unpretentious setting all under the watchful eye of our locally renowned chef, Estevan Garcia. Chef Estevan learned his cooking techniques while studying theology in the Franciscan Order and is redefining New Mexico cuisine. The new Secreto bar where wine selections trace the journey of the Franciscans from Italy to New Mexico you will find hand-crafted seasonal cocktails.
Enjoy yourself anytime with our year-long special package for two that includes a comfortable classic guestroom, a delicious breakfast for two prepared by Chef Estevan Garcia at Tabla de Los Santos restaurant or in the lovely outdoor patio. For your evening pleasure, enjoy two specialty cocktails prepared by our master mixologist Daniel Gonzales and a mouth-watering appetizer at the new Secreto Lounge. Also included in the package are two passes to the Georgia O'Keefe museum plus a very special welcoming gift for celebrating with St. Francis.
