is in the north central part of the state of new mexico, usa, in the foothills
of the sangre de cristo mountains (part of the rocky mountains) at an altitude
of 7,000 feet. it is the capital city of new mexico, but the major
city of the state is albuquerque, located 62 miles to the south.

to arrive by air:

or after the conference, rent a car. albuquerque is served by all
the major national rental car companies. most also have offices in santafe.

you will be able to walk easily to scores of restaurants, galleries, museums,
and historic sites from you hotel. In that case, plan to take the convenient
superjack shuttle from the albuquerque airport to santafe.
