Nice exterior, great bar, interesting restoration, but mediocre beds, bath and service for the price. Other downtown Santa Fe hotels do much better at combining style and function in this price range. The room is fairly small, and the only sink is a stylish vessel in a corner between a closet and an armoire containing the TV. The sink is... More

Repeat visit... Love this hotel. Perfect location. Historic Hotel that is walking distance to many things. Near favorite restaurant Pasqual's. Sean and other front desk staff excellent. Top floor rooms are quiet. Small rooms, but charming. Great bar and front veranda.

This hotel sits right near the plaza and has quite the charm. Bedrooms are small and cozy with great design. Stocked with a restaurant, a bar, and a great patio. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Our concierge directed us to a few less-touristy places and we were very pleased with his recommendations. Close to shops, dining, and of course... More

This hotel has been beautifully restored and has a lovely lobby and nice bar. It is only one block from the main plaza. Chris at the desk was very courteous and helpful, including allowing us to check in a few hours early, Their website did not mention the extra ($18 daily) parking fee however. Our room was quite comfortable and... More

Can't beat the convenience factor of the St. Francis. during our stay we stopped by our room to drop off bags, rest a few minutes, change clothes, etc. since it is only a block from the Plaza & surrounded by shopping & restaurants. The room we stayed in was minuscule...bed, armoire (doubles as TV stand & tiny closet) & lavatory... More

Nice room, historical building so smaller than normal hotel room. SKIP the restaurant!! Not worth the price-not 1/2 as good as other places in santa fe. Staff at desk were very nice.

If you like historical places, this is reasonable considering how convenient it is to everything. I took the train from Albuquerque and didn't need a car. The staff was quite nice and the lobby is pleasant. I visited just after Christmas when it still was decorated. The bar was fine for drinks and light refreshment. I only tried the dining... More

From the moment you walk in the impressive front lobby, it reminds you of the rich and wonderful history of the Santa fe Plaza. There is a excellent collection of historical photos and documents on each floor. The fixtures around the hotel are cleary handmade by exceptional artist. The bar is cozy, but electrified by a positive atmosphere and the... More

We returned to this hotel after a few years' absence and noticed that many changes had been made.
