Angie Cross, one of Santa Fe's most experienced hotel sales and marketing professionals, has resigned from her position at Encantado, an Auberge resort, and has retired to South Carolina. Her last day on the job at the Tesuque luxury property was June 25. "This is truly the end of an era, as Angie has presided over and bore witness to the maturation of Santa Fe as a world-renowned travel destination," Russ Rountree, a local advertising agent and longtime friend of Cross, said in an e-mail. "This is truly the end of an era, as Angie has presided over and bore witness to the maturation of Santa Fe as a world-renowned travel destination," Russ Rountree, a local advertising agent and longtime friend of Cross, said in an e-mail. In addition to Encantado, Cross has worked at The Inn of the Anasazi, The Bishop's Lodge Ranch and Resort, the Inn and Spa at Loretto, The Hilton of Santa Fe, the High Mesa Inn (now Courtyard by Marriott) and El Monte Sagrado in Taos. "All things start, and all things end," Cross said in an interview. "You have to know when to pass the torch." Cross recalled that she and her husband and their three boys were in Singapore in the 1970s deciding where to move in the United States. Cross recalled reading about New Mexico and decided to take her family there. When she landed in Albuquerque, "it was the Sandia Mountains that made me want to stay," she said. After eventually moving to Santa Fe, Cross met Bob Zimmer, the developer of the Inn of the Anasazi, a high-end property on Washington Avenue, just off the Plaza. Cross said that Encantado, like other hoteliers in Santa Fe, is suffering through a tough time, with visitor numbers down and bookings off. "The market is still tentative," she said. "We're hopeful this year will be better than last next year better than this. You have to be eternally optimistic in this business." She added: "You have to keep your head above water until things turn for the better." Cross remembers the old Sweeney Center and its unsuitability as a convention facility and is thankful the city finally built a new convention center. The new center "is a much-needed tool," she said., "Sweeney Center was so sad.
