Wonderful experience from check in to check out. Very quiet area but close enough to Plaza to walk comfortably. Staff was exceptional, especially Mary Ann, who was always friendly, pleasant and willing to answer questions. She epitomized customer service and seemed to be everywhere taking care of everything...always with a smile. The room was extremely comfortable, beds were fabulous, linens... More

Lovely boutique Inn away from the Plaza. Beautifully decorated rooms - each one different. Lots of water features on the property too. Breakfast provided in the airy Vanessie Restaurant. Omelete (or scrambled eggs), fruit/yoghurt/granola, juice and coffee or tea. My only recommendation is that the breakfast could be improved with more options and higher quality products.

This is a very lovely hotel. It reminded us of a small European hotel. Rooms were very cozy.

The 2 performers were very talented... More

This B&B was only three blocks away from the Plaza. We stayed for 4 nights and had a relaxing stay. Enjoyed a nice complimentary breakfast and enjoyed some very good piano bar type entertainment with Doug Montgomery. Parking is tough, but where isn't it in the Plaza area. We had a parking spot at the Inn each night, only difficulty... More

We had a great experience from start to finish. We had never been to Santa Fe and the man who helped with our reservation to the time to describe each room available to fine the perfect fit. Room 8 was perfect. Romantic, quiet, perfectly appointed, beams in the ceilings and an incredibly comfortable bed. The inn keeper was helpful in... More

We have enjoyed staying at the Inn at Vanessie over the years. When we drive down to Santa Fe from our home in Taos, we know that we will be greeted in a friendly and accomodating manner by a wonderful young woman, Mary Ann who seems to be able to do it all!. The rooms are lovely , beautifully (tasteful)... More

The hotel that we normally stay at was booked so we tool a chance on Vanessie. This is a great place. The staff couldn't be nicer. The rooms are a nice size and nicely furnished. Breakfast was very good. We'll be back

My boyfriend and i recently stayed at Vanessie and the experience was wonderful. Mary Ann went out of her way to find us the perfect room which was really appreciated because it was my boyfriends birthday, so i wanted it to be special which it was. The ambiance was very peaceful. I will definitely be staying there again!!!
