Lovely place, pleasant and accommodating staff, good beds, nice furniture and more. We got a good price on a large, well-appointed suite. The only criticism is that this particular room was noisy because it was located next to mechanical systems.

A very lovely hotel. Rooms very spacious - temp adjustable and responsive. Solid night sleep, great bedding. Pleasant sitting room. Staff delightful. Very close to the center! Recommend the Loretta line tour. Rent a bike from Mello Velo for 24 hours. Great to see the town this way!

When we were trying to decide whether to stay in Santa Fe or head back home, the front desk associates, Renee and Jesse, were extremely helpful and accommodating. Fortunately, they had a large suite style room available. The suite was a little dated in decor and but was very clean and quiet. Another bonus is that they have underground parking.... More

I booked Hotel Chimayo for a three-night stay in August for my honeymoon. We had been looking for an independent location with a local flare, good location and decent price. We were so fortunate to have found Hotel Chimayo! We stayed in a junior suite that was beautifully decorated, cozy and classy yet cost less than most other places I... More

Just 1/2 block from the historic plaza, rooms facing the charming courtyard. Large patio at front entrance to sit and rest after a day of walking through town. Many rooms have wood burning fireplaces. Friendly staff and lots of New Mexican charm. Off street parking in underground garage.

Upon double parking in the garage and coming up the grubby looking elevator, I was worried. Hold the phone! First we met the desk clerk, Tyra, who warmly welcomed us and deftly dealt with our grumblings about the overcrowded garage by taking our car keys and assuring us one of the hotel staff would move our car into a space...

Awkward to get to up narrow stairs off patio; oversubscribed sub-terrainian parking; but close to central shopping/restaurants. Nice size room but overlooking alley which fortunately proved quiet overnight.

Dear W B W, Thank you for staying with us and for reviewing your experience.

There are other options for parking if you prefer on your next stay with us. We hope... More

I have stayed at Hotel Chimayo twice, and each time has been very pleasant. It's centrally located just steps from the Plaza and the many museums that surround it. One would think that such a location would make for a lot of street noise, but the hotel itself is very quiet. The junior suites include a comfortable living area with... More

First visit to Santa Fe and picked hotel bases on reviews. Great for those of us who like B&B and non chains hotels. Not for those who like modern spacious bathrooms. Courtyard layout with open lobby gives a nice welcome. You can walk to many attractions and restaurants. Staff was welcoming and friendly. Hotel parking is expensive $18/day but you... More

I liked this hotel! From walking in the door,we were greeted so warmly( I think the young man was Victor) and we had a junior suite. I travel with my Bichon Frise dog and was very comfortable. Yes, there are crosses in the hotel, but I have no problem with being protected ! We are actually still here for another... More
