Four different development proposals for Garrett’s Desert Inn are headed for talks between State Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn and a team of Santa Fe community, business and government leaders next month.

The property, 311 Old Santa Fe Trail, came to the Land Office through a land exchange with Cochiti Pueblo.

According to a Land Office news release, all four proposals came from New Mexico companies. As listed in the news release, they are:

— HRV Hotel Partners, LLC, in conjunction with joint venture partners Santa Fe Dining, Inc., Marble Brewing Company, and the Margetson Family, is proposing to redevelop the existing property into a contemporary interpretation of a 1950’s-era, Santa Fe motor court style hotel. The proposed hotel would include 84 guest rooms with private patios and balconies, including four Airstream trailers restored as guest rooms, a reconstructed lobby, meeting space, restaurant and bar with outdoor patios and rooftop terraces, a rooftop pool, fitness center, an outdoor movie screen, and other amenities.
