Meem Rooms & Suites
The Meem Rooms & Suites are located in the historic and renovated hacienda designed by New Mexico’s most important architect, John Gaw Meem. A style attributed to him, the “Territorial Revival” rooms include 1930s revival tin light fixtures, hand-carved beams, ironwork, hardwood floors, hand-plastered walls and fireplaces and period New Mexican artwork. Although no two rooms are alike, each historic room has a special and unique view, be it a sweeping view of the lotus pond, blooming rose garden or historic Moorish fountain. (Please note: fireplaces are wood-burning and are set daily during winter. If you are sensitive to the smell of smoke, please consider the Field Suites. Rooms in the Historic Hacienda are temporarily unavailable.)
The historic hacienda is the centerpiece of the Meem Rooms & Suites. These Hacienda Classic Rooms surround the intimate courtyard and are a lovely way for groups to ensure a private lodging experience.

Reflecting the elegant beauty of the Territorial Revival style and John Gaw Meem’s original designs, these rooms feature beautiful views of the gardens, grounds and courtyards. Each room’s cozy furnishings were selected to compliment the historic charm. Rooms are in the relaxing and private Hacienda courtyard, or adjacent garden courtyard affording easy access to the public spaces of the Inn and property.
These spacious rooms with a king bed and sitting room with sofa sleeper are perfect for guests looking to enjoy the historic area of the Inn. Enter the room on a covered portal from the garden lawns and immediately take in the beautiful views towards the Sandia Mountains. Bathrooms are spacious and feature a large soaking tub and walk-in shower.
The three classic suites each offer a wholly unique experience — Girard Guesthouse features decor that is inspired by Alexander Girard, the late great designer whose folk art collection can be seen in Santa Fe. The hand painted floors and quirky décor are highlight of this quiet, exclusive room.
The Shaffer Suite, located in the Hacienda courtyard, offers expansive views of the surrounding gardens and features warm, albeit simple furnishings. Curl up with a good book in front of one of the two fireplaces.
The Simms Suite, also in the Hacienda courtyard, was the historic home's former master suite and features a bright sunny bedroom surrounded by windows, private access to the gardens, and a unique layout of original men and women’s dressing rooms and original cedar lined closets.
The two Greely Suites, original buildings from the 1930s, open into the historic gardens designed by landscape architect Rose Greely. The summer gardens teem with colorful roses and dahlias and the winter gardens offer a transcendent and reflective space. The rooms are true to classic John Gaw Meem architecture and feature private patios, kiva fireplaces, hardwood floors, exposed viga beams and vintage 1930s tin-work. The private rooms offer a great escape for couples looking for a romantic getaway.
