I stayed at the Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder during a recent trip to Santa Fe. The hotel is really nice and very large. The parking was free and abundant. The facilities were really clean and the lobby was very comfortable. The staff was also very nice. The room was really well appointed and very comfortable. The bed was extremely... More

Decided to try a new hotel on my routine business visits to Santa Fe, and this hotel makes me want to convert over to all Hilton hotels from now on (instead of IHG). Rooms were very well detailed and comfortable. Enjoyed room service in the morning which was great. Checked out the casino for a short time, since I arrived... More

The Hilton at Buffalo Thunder outside of Santa Fe is beautiful, the food from the buffet is outstanding and the guest services are top notch. Can't wait to go back! If you are planning a trip to Santa Fe I would suggest staying here!!

We stopped here for the casino which was very nice. We did a little tour of the hotel and this place is great. It has everything you need to have a pleasant stay. This hotel is not far from other restaurants in the area. Next time we are booking a room here.

Arrived early and was checked in promptly. Staff from Front Desk to wait staff including housekeeping were friendly and attentive. The restaurant chef went out of there way to accommodate special dietary needs. All areas were clean and the Native Art was a classic touch.

This is a very beautiful, well maintained property approx. 15 minutes to the north of the Santa Fe Plaza. The drive up US 285/84 is worth it alone for the amazing high desert scenery and intricately designed and painted highway overpasses. The property is also a great starting point for other popular destinations in the northern portion of the state... More

The Hilton Buffalo Thunder Resort was a wonderful experience for spending a quiet Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Rooms and facilities were clean and spacious. The resort is pet-friendly so our dog Ella had a great time as well. This was our second stay at the resort and we will come back in the future.

This was our first time in the area and I had business to do at the Buffalo Thunder. Stayed on-site at the hotel which was a Hilton. I would highly recommend staying here. Close to Santa Fe and the hotel/casino offers a regular shuttle to local restaurants and Santa Fe. I highly recommend a visit. Both restaurants on-site were also... More

This is a great hotel/casino. The rooms are spacious, the hotel is beautiful. Wasn't a fan of the buffet dinner but the Turquoise Bar in the casino was awesome and the older gentlemen/host (wish I could remember his name) is a jewel. Wanted to stay and visit with him rather than gamble LOL! Casino is a little on the small... More
