    Hi Veronique,
    I am really enjoying this post! Prior to transferring to Hilton Corporate, I worked on property at Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder. Buffalo Thunder features an amazing art collection that is accompanied by a walkable art tour on the GeoTourist App. You should definitely download the app and take the Tour, just search for Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder and it will pop up. I look forward to collaborating with you for the Hilton Suggests Travel Blog! 🙂

    Best,
    Amberly
