Fourteen miles north of downtown Santa Fe along US 84/285, the Hilton Golf Resort is an upscale, full service hotel occupying a large site along the scenic Rio Tesuque valley, surrounded by empty desert lands with views of distant mountains east and west; one of the premier resort destinations in the state. The complex is centered on the 27 hole Towa Golf Course, and also includes a 16,000 sq ft spa (Wo' P'In Spa), offering Native American-influenced treatments as befitting the location within Pojoaque Pueblo Indian Reservation, and a casino with slots, roulette, poker and other tables. No fewer then nine dining outlets provide meals and drinks for every occasion, largest being the 350-seat Painted Parrot Buffet. Event facilities include a wedding chapel and 66,000 sq ft of indoor/outdoor space catering for up to 1,200 people.
