Disney's Hotel Santa Fe is a hotel at Disneyland Paris. It is designed by Albuquerque- based architect Antoine Predock,[1] whose other work stands mainly in the American Southwest, to evoke the atmosphere of a motel in Santa Fe, New Mexico with its typical Pueblo Revival architecture. Surrounding the buildings is a desert-like environment in which cacti and decorative neon have been placed to further emphasise the American Southwestern theme. A drive-in theater screen is permanently displaying characters from the Cars franchise and an intentionally derelict neon sign stands at the entrance. It shares an area of Disneyland Paris with Disney's Hotel Cheyenne, located on either side of a man-made river called the Rio Grande.

The hotel opened with the Euro Disney Resort in April 1992.

Trivia[edit]

  • Another example of recreated Southwestern pueblo architecture can also be found in the Disneyland Park: the Fuente del Oro restaurant in Frontierland displays massive adobe-style walls with protruding wooden beams and deeply inset windows.
