Booked 3 nights at La Fonda (#6 ranked) and got a suite on the top floor which was very nice, then moved to Inn on the Alameda (#2 ranked) and was very cozy and convenient with a great breakfast. Finally moved to Vanessie for 3 nights and was overwhelmed with the friendliness, wonderful service, beautiful room and it just felt... More

First time here. Could return. The hotel is a small compound of four or five adobe buildings. Our room was on a corner of one with its own small courtyard and entrance. The room was cozy and very home-like. Very well decorated in typical Santa Fe style. Good bathroom as well. The stay included a breakfast in their restaurant dining... More

We recently enjoyed a five night stay at this property where we were greeted warmly and given information regarding the local area that was very helpful. The location is perfect; quiet,within walking distance of the plaza but also accessible to the main highways. It is about three blocks to the plaza. Curb parking is very hard to find but there...

Hats off to Santana who is terrific. She is generous with her time and knowledgeable about places to see in Santa Fe. Nice place to stay though our room was a bit narrow. Very convenient to most places we wanted to visit so we could leave our car and walk everywhere.

Wonderful experience, clean, convenient to all that Santa Fe has to offer and wifi, parking and breakfast included. A little funky which only adds to the experience. Definitely recommend the Vanessie.

Drove down from Denver for a quick Friday-Sunday stay. Was so pleasantly surprised by the gracious staff. Karen was more than helpful and the room and amenities exceeded our expectations. Comfortable, quaint, complete. Loved that it was a quick walk to all the shops and restaurants in the square--no trouble getting to/from without driving. Also loved the pianist and bar,... More

This is the fourth time I have stayed at the Inn at Vanessie, and every time I've stayed, I've been so impressed with the graciousness of the Inn, the caliber of the linens and appointments in the room, from the lighted mirror to the upscale furniture and bedding. The staff is helpful and the breakfasts are plentiful and delicious. We... More

We stayed at the Inn at Vanessie on Oct. 19-21st. This is a lovely, smaller inn. Each room is unique. We were in room 2 and found it very comfortable. Although we were on Water Street, it was very quiet. We never heard any traffic and the room was not facing the parking lot. The sitting area was very spacious,... More

This property has a beautiful atmosphere. The rooms are very unique and spacious..almost like mini-apartments. Our friends had two courtyards. The piano bar is a fun area to relax and has world-class entertainment.

We stayed in one of the suites upstairs, number 6 to be exact. It was well worth the money! The only things that we weren't too impressed with were the internet login process, and the noisy air conditioner in the bedroom. The login process was confusing and would stop working randomly and the air conditioner would make a loud rumbling... More
