We spent the night of January 1, 2015 at the Inn at Vanessie, based on the recommendation of friends. The weather was cold (below freezing at night) which we understand is below average for Santa Fe, but that is no excuse for the inadequate heating in our room. We noticed how cold the room was when we checked in late... More

I was truly excited to spend an evening at the Vanessie as it appeared both quaint and charming based on prior reviews and website pictures. I first learned about the Vanessie several years prior by dining at their restaurant and staying at the nearby Las Palomas B&B. Accordingly, we booked approx. 4 months in advanced to reserve our room of... More

We stayed around Christmas at the Inn and enjoyed the room, the restaurant/piano bar and the location. Service was exceptional as they recommended restaurants and provided maps of sights and the city center. The Kiva fireplace was cozy and fun. Parking was ample though the location was so central that we hardly used it. We plan to stay again.

First time staying in this Inn, but long time visitors to Santa Fe. In town for Christmas. Cozy, warm interior ,but wall heater was noisy and power light was too bright. Only received one small bar of soap, shampoo, gel, entire four day stay. Given the price, should have freshened daily. Walls very thin, upstairs guest walked around constantly, causing... More

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

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
