According to archeologists, Chaco Canyon may not only have been home to an enduring population of inhabitants, but may also have been a home-away-­from-­home for guests, travelers and visitors in the area for trade, ceremonies and special rites. The efforts of the Native peoples to establish community and permanence has inspired us to do the same for you, so that you may continue the same journey, in contemporary luxury and comfort at our Albuquerque lodging. We invite you to discover your own journey.
