The Desert Inn is the most convenient, most affordable place to stay since it is on the same block as the State Capitol and the Rio Chama Restaurant.

The hotel is offering a special rate of $59 plus tax per room for one or two people. Parts of the hotel are still under renovation, but the rooms we have blocked have been *completely* renovated. You can request double queens or a king-sized bed. If we fill 10 rooms, the hotel will waive the $8 parking fee. Non-guests pay $10 a day. Mention League of Women Voters to take advantage of this rate. Call 505 982-1851 to make a reservation. They will hold your room with a credit card number. Their new website is not up yet.
