Once a New World outpost of Spain, New Mexico retains its colonial character with unique adobe architecture, vibrant traditions and a blending of Spanish and Native American cultures. Marriott’s accommodations in New Mexico provide the ideal point of departure for your adventures in “the Land of Enchantment.”
Santa Fe, which locals call the “City Different,” lives up to its reputation as a haven for artists. The Plaza, bordered by the Palace of the Governors and an array of charming galleries and shops, is usually the first stop for guests of our New Mexico hotels. With dozens of restaurants and open-air markets within walking distance, this area retains its Old World ambience. Nearby Albuquerque, known as the “ballooning capital of the world,” is host to the annual International Balloon Fiesta each October.
In the winter, skiers flock to the slopes of Taos and Angel Fire. In the summer, rafting on the Rio Grande and other local rivers is an adventurous option. After a day on slopes or rapids, our New Mexico hotel guests may find themselves hungry for Southwestern cuisine, flavored with New Mexican chili peppers. From scenic landscapes to cultural experiences, New Mexico truly has something for everyone.
