Hubby and I checked in Sunday afternoon for a 2-night stay and were immediately in love with Hotel Chimayo. The lobby is amazing, with a gorgeous fireplace, hand painted tiles, heavy wood furniture, a basket of fresh apples and hot apple cider, and a very friendly front desk staff. The location couldn't be more ideal - a block from the... More

Although there was a problem with our Orbitz reservation, the hotel staff got us into rooms on a very crowded holiday weekend. There was never a question that they would take good care of us. The hotel is comfortable, quiet, with a great location very close to the plaza. The beds are very comfortable and well appointed. We would stay... More

The hotel and rooms were beautiful and well-kept. The staff was overly helpful and did not mind going out of there way to accommodate you and your friends/guests. One desk staff member even went so far as to drive a guest of mine back to her hotel after she had drank a little too much late at might. That is... More

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!

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.
