Everyone was very friendly. It was unique and fun experience. Great place for my short business trip. Plus it was centrally located making it easy to get food and get where I needed to be. I would stay here again if I needed to visit Santa Fe again.

Very unique hotel with the look and feel of real Santa Fe and Southwestern culture. In room fireplaces add to the experience. Great location in downtown and free parking! The room was spacious and well decorated. It even had it's own patio area outside for relaxing. Just a great place to stay if you want the real feel of Santa... More

This is our third visit to Santa Fe and we always stay at the inn. The hotel staff, especially Maryann were delightful. The breakfast was wonderful and the room was great! The fireplace was such a delight and as cold as it was outside, the room was warm and inviting with the fireplace aglow. We walked to the plaza everyday,... More

This Inn is one of the best spots in Santa Fe. Conveniently located to the square on Water Street with gorgeous rooms and a great restaurant and bar. Stayed there last Christmas after through New Years. Small and elegant with terrific New Mexico decor.

I found the Inn at Vanessie via Hotwire and I will come back here when I'm in Santa Fe again. It exceeded all expectations of service, accommodation, breakfast and evening piano entertainment. I enjoyed MaryAnn's warm touch; she is the everything person - reception, concierge, breakfast and room clean-up. She was waiting for me as I arrived after dark and... More

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.
