The Inn and Spa at Loretto will reopen Wednesday, the last of eight downtown Santa Fe hotels to turn the lights back on after shuttering during the spring travel meltdown.

The delay in reopening the Loretto stems from extensive renovation work that overhauled the lobby and bar area and added a couple shops, said Molly Ryckman, vice president of marketing at Heritage Hotels & Resorts, which owns the inn.

Heritage also owns the Eldorado Hotel & Spa, which reopened July 15, Hotel St. Francis (July 1) and Hotel Chimayó de Santa Fe (July 1). All had closed in March as tourism collapsed because of the novel coronavirus pandemic, leaving a handful of remaining downtown hotels with room occupancy rates at about 5 percent.
