My stay at the Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe was a surprise and a delight. The service was superb (with special kudos to Jordan, Kristen, Anthony and Ernesto) and the atmosphere was serene, romantic and inviting. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of downtown Santa Fe but the heart of my visit was a roaring fire in the... More

We got a room with a fireplace, which worked out well as it was a snowy weekend, and the courtyard, lobby and bar area were welcoming and pleasant. The room was, however, a little lacking in charm, with a strange cluster of weathered-wood crosses on the wall above the fireplace, and another big wooden cross over the bed. The bed... More

Hotel Chimayo is right off the plaza in a beautiful building with beautiful and comfortable suites. It was wonderful to have a fire and nice to have a parking garage. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful. There are stairs to get up to the suites, so you might need to take that into consideration. We are looking forward to going... More

We stayed at Hotel Chimayo during Indian Market week and found the location could not have been better. The courtyard was wonderful, and the bar was lively. The hotel staff were terrific. It will be the hotel of choice for Santa Fe going forward.

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised at the comfort and amenities of this hotel. Large spacious rooms all set up like suites. Friendly folks and the bar was great!

This hotel has an excellent location just off the Plaza. The rooms are nice and large and you need to pay the extra to get one with a fireplace and living room. The extra $10.00 is well worth it. This is a historic property and it is lovely. We love staying here. The beds are comfortable and it is always... More

In the heart of Santa Fe's Historic District, 1/2 a block from the Plaza, is the coziest, most spacious, most luxurious GEM of a hotel.

The best part is it is just steps from the plaza and the price is very good for the location. They accept pets which is important to me. My go to place when ever I'm in Santa Fe which... More

Our family was in town for a wedding. The location was close to the venue and so many nice parts of the city. We enjoyed walking around to site see and shop. This hotel is so cute and provides great service. We will be back!
