A very nice smaller hotel right near the square. This is a short walk to Canyon Road and the great galleries. Also very convenient to the museums and top rated restaurants. The staff is extraordinarily nice and very accommodating. Some of the rooms have lovely fire places that they will make a nice fire for you. Would definitely stay there... More

A very cute and not overpriced hotel just off the plaza in Santa Fe. Funkiest thing are all the crosses about the room: on the wall, framed photos... No coffee at the bar; otherwise, once little bar with a jazz duo, No restaurant at the hotel, but that isn't missed, as there are so many around the plaza and surrounding... More

Great location around the corner from the plaza. Pleasantly surprised and will return again. We were given two rooms; one on the first floor and one on the second floor, connected by an interior staircase.

This was one of my favorite hotel stays ever. The Hotel Chimayo is just around the corner from the main downtown plaza. It is easy walking distance to museums, galleries, restaurants, historic buildings. The hotel building is beautiful and all rooms open onto a cobblestoned courtyard decorated with hanging bunches of chilis. Our room was appointed beautifully complete with fireplace.... More

Great location by the Plaza, comfy bed and so cute with all the Rista's hanging off the hotel. Only spent one night and could of easily stayed for more. The check in process was quick and they were very friendly. Parking is under the hotel and was $14 a night. Would recommend.

We've stayed here four times and always enjoy the Chimayo. The staff is friendly and helpful. Location is perfect for the tourist - near the square. The "bar scene" is good and still not too loud to keep you awake in your room. When rooms are discounted, it is a deal. Great decor and many have great space to relax.... More
