Description: The Drury Plaza Hotel in Santa Fe is located in the heart of downtown Santa Fe, adjacent to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis de Assisi. In the 1910s, a portion of the property was a dormitory for the Sisters of Charity. The primary façade is from the 1950's St. Vincent's Hospital, designed by John Gaw Meem, and is an excellent example of late Territorial Revival style. The hospital remained in the building until 1977; after that, the structure housed offices, as well as being used for movie sets. The new 182-room hotel features all of the renowned amenities of Drury Hotels, as well as modern, spacious, light-filled rooms with magnificent views of Santa Fe skies. A rooftop pool provides more breathtaking views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. There is a restaurant on premises, and Santa Fe's famous Plaza area is but steps away. The fully renovated buildings are steeped in history, and surrounded by a pedestrian oasis - all in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico.
