El Rey Inn in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Recently we selected the El Rey Inn for a one night stay in Santa Fe on our way to a wedding in Taos. We were very pleasantly surprised by the wonderful atmosphere of the Inn, the cordial way that the staff treats visitors, and the delicious, mouthwatering continental breakfast. The Inn has an Old World feel with its architecture, ambience and beautiful grounds. It reminded us of Italian villas. The walls outside each room were decorated with colorful painted tiles. The tree-lined drives through the grounds added to the picturesqueness of the facility. We will definitely stay here again, hopefully for an extended stay since I am a plein air painter. In fact, I did this plein air painting of one of the Inn's buildings while we were there. For more particulars on this painting, check out
