Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe – Behind the scene

Vroom! Keep the engine humming we’re off to Route 66!

The hotel is the work of an American architect living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He designed a hotel in the spirit of the American Southwest with a Mexican influence. It consists of several buildings in a style similar to the adobe houses of the pueblos of this region.

The entrance and the main parking lot of the hotel are reminiscent of the American drive-in theaters where you can watch a movie from your car. A gigantic canvas displays a portrait of Flash McQueen and Sally Carrera from the Pixar movie Cars (previously, it was Clint Eastwood who sat on the portrait).

This new decoration is a tribute to the New Generation of Disney-Pixar characters from Cars who travel along Route 66 – one of the main themes of the hotel.

Then the Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe was entirely themed on this seventh feature film in computer-generated animation from Pixar Studios Cars: released in 2006 and co-produced by Disney Studios, the film takes place in a world populated by anthropomorphic cars.

Personal tip: If you want even more comfort, ask for a room near the river, the place is quieter, or close to the hotel’s services!
