Travel and Lodging


Courses run Tuesday through Friday with registration and an opening reception at 6pm on the Monday evening immediately preceding.  For more detail on what each course will look like, please go to the Schedules page.


Planes – Although most people fly into Albuquerque, it is possible to fly straight to Santa Fe.  If you coming from or connecting through Los Angeles, Dallas, or Denver, then it is possible to fly straight to Santa Fe.  American Eagle has flights from L.A. and Dallas, and Great Lakes Airlines has flights straight from Denver to Santa Fe.  Also, there are now flights between Phoenix and Santa Fe.  It’s worth looking into as this may significantly cut your travel time; Santa Fe is about an hour from Albuquerque.

Train – Once you are in Albuquerque, it is possible to get to Santa Fe via the NM Rail Runner.  Because the train doesn’t go to the airport, you actually have to grab a bus first.  So, although the train is enjoyable, the logistics of it are cumbersome.  

Airport Shuttles – If you fly into Albuquerque, we recommend you forgo renting a car and take the Sandia Shuttle.  The cost for this is about $35 one way.  This shuttle will take you straight to the hotel (see below).  If you fly into Santa Fe, then we recommend you hop the Roadrunner Shuttle to your hotel.   This shuttle is $15 one way or $27 round trip.

Rental Car – We recommend not renting a car.  Not only is the hotel conveniently located downtown, close to all sorts of great restaurants, museums, shopping, etc., but we are doing what we can to reduce the cost to participants who are traveling to our fair city for our intellectual soiree.  In addition to the shuttles above that will get you to and from the hotel, the hotel itself has a shuttle that will take you in a 2 mile radius, and we will be running daily shuttles from the hotel to our campus for each day’s sessions.


We are thrilled to announce that we have been able to secure a block of rooms atLa Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa.  This is a premier resort in Santa Fe with absolutely beautiful rooms and grounds that are both close to downtown Santa Fe as well as Santa Fe Preparatory School.  We have been able to negotiate rooms at a rate of $199 per night with double-occupancy as an option for an extra $25 each night.  (Please note, that if you are charged the $30 per day spa fee, let us know right away because that is an error.)  To reserve your room, please call the following number for group reservations:  (505) 954-9686 or (855) 278-5276 or go to this link.  Please request the group rate for the EE Ford Summer Teachers’ Colloquium.  All reservation requests must be received by La Posada by June 28th, 2019.  If you have any problems whatsoever, please email Drew Nucci, and he will help you out.
