There is always plenty to do at a Hot List 2022 hotel winner, from boat rides along their waterfronts to hitting the boutiques right outside their doors. Here, how to turn an overnight into a proper stay, complete with planning tips for places in Santa Fe, Boston and Boca Raton.
Since the 1930s, New Mexico has been called the ‘Land of Enchantment’, and after visiting Bishop’s Lodge, Auberge Resorts Collection, it’s easy to see why. The property dates back to the 1860s and recently underwent a six-year, $75 million-dollar renovation before reopening in 2021. Downtown Santa Fe is a few miles away, but the hotel’s scenic setting in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, makes it feel far removed. When you go, be sure to pencil in time at Stream Dance Spa, where ancient rituals and holistic treatments like crystal bowl south bathing revitalize the spirit. Meanwhile, each of the 100 guest rooms and suites are spiritual sanctuaries in themselves, with kiva fireplaces and private terraces. As the sun sets over the landscape, head to SkyFire, where leather furnishings and cow skin rugs give the signature restaurant a sophisticated, Southwestern flair that’s reflected in menu items like chili-chicken enchiladas and margaritas made with local limes and apricots.
