There is no shortage of accommodation options in Santa Fe. This place right off the plaza is one of our favorites. We always get a room with a fireplace and enjoy the romance. Stayed here many times so we know what to expect.

I've stayed in this hotel several times, because it has a great location, just across from the Palace of the Governors and around the corner from the SF Plaza. I like its covered parking and the way rooms open up to a serene courtyard. The rooms are more like little suites, with a fireplace and tiny little bar in the... More

Although the location of Hotel Chimayo is close to the square, offers underground parking and the staff were kind, this hotel is very dated. The cleanliness was also questionable as we found items in our room that had not been cleaned for a very long time i.e. the phone, table tops etc. The carpets were also very questionable in the...

When we pulled up we realized we had stayed here years ago under a different name. Customer service from the onset was exceptional as they were kind, caring and total pros. Our room was more like a condo - sitting area, large bedroom, tiny balcony. The fireplaces in Santa Fe are always a must in the winter. Fire alarms went... More

I love this hotel! Friendly service, beautiful rooms (some with fire places), AMAZING location right off the plaza. Don't miss the Burrito Company on the corner for excellent breakfasts (they also deliver right to your room). Also, the Lowrider Bar (attached to the lobby) is actually really fun. Good drinks! This is my favorite hotel in Santa Fe. The only... More

The cold of post-Christmas Santa Fe greeted us as we pulled into the Hotel Chimayo after sunset, ready for a break from the road and a good bathroom. Only a block from the downtown square (nicely decorated and the site of a few galleries, shops and fine restaurants) and three from its sister establishment, the Hotel St. Francis, lots of... More

Located a half block off the Plaza is this small hotel with an underground garage large enough for a big SUV. The more expensive rooms are still reasonable and roomy and charming, some with fireplaces and views of both the courtyard and the city/mountains. Unfortunately, the fireplaces may be a detraction since some guests lack the ability to use them... More

Small charming hotel near the Santa Fe Plaza on Washington Avenue; it is named after the Village of Chimayo, about 45 min drive north of Santa Fe enroute on the back roads to Taos. Chile Ristras adorn the old fashioned "southern style" porch. When you enter the Hotel Chimayo, you see this wonderful courtyard on the other side of the... More

We enjoyed staying here but probably will not return. The staff was friendly and the room was sufficient. King bed was comfortable and room was clean. No place to sit and work at the computer unless you enjoy sitting in straight back hard bottom chairs. (see photos) The reception/lobby area is small. Nice fireplace burning in the evening in Dec....

My husband stayed at Hotel Chimayo for six nights over Christmas and found the hotel to be very disappointing. On the plus side, the location is great--right off the Plaza. Other than that, there's little to recommend it. The service was friendly but spotty. I asked to have a burned out light bulb replaced in our room, but it was... More
