Absolutely the best mini-vacation we've enjoyed in years... and so close to home! The Staff was superb and the accomodations were outstanding. The Art Gallery and the Red Sage REstaurant were my two favorites. Affordable luxury in a beautiful setting. Thank you Buffaloe Thunder for a terrific time!

We were a group of 4 rooms with adults and children. We all found our rooms to be extremely clean, large, and comfortable compared to other area hotels (those closer to Santa Fe). We enjoyed the indoor pool, fitness room, and jacuzzi. We did not visit the casino. We found the casino to be too smoky for all the adults... More

Our 5th floor suite was amazing--decorated in SW style with 2 gas fireplaces and a huge balcony which, unfortunately, it was too cold to enjoy. Hotel personnel were very friendly and helpful. We stayed 3 days and loved every minute. Creme brulee oatmeal at Mica Restaurant was out of this world!

This hotel was absolutely awesome. Upon driving up to the front lobby I was greeted with an exceptionally well maintained and decorated entrance. Upon checking in the lobby was exquisite; decorated with beautiful southwestern and Indian artifacts. The lobby floor and overlooked a lovely sunken gathering area, and to the left, a beautiful, large fireplace. The staff were all VERY... More

From the moment we registered at the hotel, we had a marvelous time. The lobbies are beautiful and our room was large and well appointed. The creme brule oatmeal I had for breakfast was the best I've ever had. What an enjoyable experience.

The Hilton Santa Fe Golf Resort at Buffalo Thunder is an amazing culmination of elegance and culture. The building itself is a wonder with first class design and rich history that invites you at every turn. The rooms are nicely decorated, I do wish the rooms shared the same elegance as the rest of the building. It wasn't that bad,... More
