Hotel St. Francis
Santa Fe, NM
The Hotel St. Francis traces its history to the Palace Hotel, known as the De Vargas for its last dozen years. This hotel was built in the 1880's. In January 1922, in what was the biggest fire in Santa Fe in 300 years, the De Vargas burned completely to the ground leaving only the brick chimney to mark the location.
The new De Vargas Hotel opened its doors in 1924. It was a first class hotel with a spacious lobby, a wonderful dining room and a bar. In 1986 the hotel was remodeled, the interior was refurbished, and it reopened as the Hotel St. Francis.
