The hotel is immediately off of the square in SF. If you can walk another 100 feet you will save some money. The rooms are nice New Mexico style. Some criticism is that TV's are old. That did not bother me because I did not come to SF to sit in my room and watch TV. I did enjoy the... More

We stayed in a 2-bedroom suite with a living room and kitchenette. It was perfect for our girls' trip--we'd play all day, then spend a quiet evening together in the living room (with wine and a bag of kettle corn from the vendor in the plaza). The only time I heard another guest was when the man next door had... More

We had a mix-up on the date of our last night in our Santa Fe Vacation Rental and needed a nice hotel room quickly. We booked at Hotel De Chimayo over Hotwire. When I read the very mixed reviews, I was apprehensive. But we were very pleased with this historic hotel near the Plaza. Here's the deal: if you want... More

We loved this hotel. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds super comfortable. There was nothing we could have asked for more. We went for breakfast to Ecco Espresso which is one block away. For dinner we went to the Shed, also just one block away. This hotel is in the perfect location!

I stayed in a large one bedroom suite on the third floor of the main building, with elevator access. As noted by other reviewers, the hotel's major selling point is its central location, half a block off the plaza. Apart from its location, and a pleasant staff, there is not much favorable to say about the place. It is badly... More

The hotel's web site offers, "Tia's Cocina New Mexican Restaurant," but that's a big NOPE. For breakfast we were directed to walk a block to the corner of the park in the square, cross the park, go down that street 5-6 blocks to a breakfast place. Not too convenient when you just want to tank up for the day. (On... More

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel many, many times. It used to be called Plaza Real. We always enjoyed it because of excellent service and great location. This trip, however, was very disappointing. Upon check-in we learned that the hotel's restaurant was closed and had been for sometime. Their website still shows they have a restaurant. Strike...
