My sister-in-law and I visit Santa Fe every year, and this hotel is the only place we will ever stay. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are luxurious but not overly expensive, and the location can't be beat. We absolutely love this hotel and can't recommend it highly enough!

The location of Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe can't be beat! The staff are very friendly, the rooms clean and well appointed. The ambiance is very nice. The rooms open on to a nice courtyard and are very quiet. Definitely will stay here again!

There could not be a better location in Santa Fe. Located in the center of things, you never need use of a car. Actually the traffic congestion is a bit overwhelming, so stay on foot or bike. The staff could not be friendlier, including there affection toward my dog. yes, they allow dogs, with a fee, but nothing outrageous. My... More

I stayed at Hotel Chimayo in June for a business trip, and this was my third time staying here. The rooms are not spectacular, but they are spacious and decorated in the spirit of the southwest. It is a great value, especially for State or Federal employees - be sure to ask about the government rate - they honor the... More

The hotel was friendly and so were the staff. Nathan, front desk, gave us a complimentary upgraded room and it was amazingly spacious. The beds were very comfortable.

When we go to Santa Fe, we stay in town about a week prior to staying at a spa outside the town, to be able to walk to most of the attractions and dine at the downtown restaurants. This was our first visit to the Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe and we were so pleased we will return next year.... More

The hotel is immediately off of the square in SF. If you can walk another 100 feet you will save some money. The rooms are nice New Mexico style. Some criticism is that TV's are old. That did not bother me because I did not come to SF to sit in my room and watch TV. I did enjoy the... More

We stayed in a 2-bedroom suite with a living room and kitchenette. It was perfect for our girls' trip--we'd play all day, then spend a quiet evening together in the living room (with wine and a bag of kettle corn from the vendor in the plaza).

We had a mix-up on the date of our last night in our Santa Fe Vacation Rental and needed a nice hotel room quickly. We booked at Hotel De Chimayo over Hotwire.

We loved this hotel. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds super comfortable. There was nothing we could have asked for more. We went for breakfast to Ecco Espresso which is one block away. For dinner we went to the Shed, also just one block away. This hotel is in the perfect location!
