Creativity and Customer Focus Delivers for Santa Fe Sage Inn

Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce 2009 Business Award Recipients

Santa Fe, New Mexico - The Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce, the City of Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Community College joined forces this year to present the 2009 Business Excellence Awards. The awards were presented at the Chamber’s Annual Banquet on May 28, 2009. The Santa Fe Sage Inn was awarded the 2009 Business Excellence Award for a business with 21 or more employees.

The local owners of the Santa Fe Sage Inn had a vision that the property would provide guests a downtown lodging option that was comfortable and affordable. The Santa Fe Sage Inn attracts guests who are interested in spending their hard-earned dollars visiting Santa Fe’s wonderful museums, restaurants and art galleries, while also finding value oriented lodging in the Heart of Santa Fe. To accomplish the vision, the owners have invested over $2 million in renovations and upgrades to the property. The owners and management team have also significantly invested in sales and marketing, guest satisfaction, creative hotel packages and promotions, as well as the development of a dedicated, professional and friendly staff.

In this very difficult economy, this strategy has delivered successful results. The Santa Fe Sage Inn’s customer focus has resulted in higher revenue in 2009 than any other previous year. From 2004 through 2008, the property has experienced revenue growth of 300% with an average of over 30% annual growth. Staff has gone from 12 employees to over 25, and all this has been accomplished with an annual average daily rate of under $80 per night. A bargain for Downtown Santa Fe!
