We were very pleased with the courtesies shown to us by the staff. From the front desk to the maintenance fellows, we were made very welcome. Our room had a heating problem, but it was resolved the second day. In the meantime, we had to completely shut off the heater and open windows. Our room felt quite dated and the... More

Inn of the Governors is within walking distance of all downtown museums, restaurants, and interesting sites which makes one feel part of this historic city. With their included free parking, you have true flexibility. Other included perks are a full breakfast buffet and sherry, tea, and cookies between 4 & 5 every evening. The gracious staff makes this a special... More

We enjoyed our four night stay at Inn of the Governors very much. The location is great for being in the heart of Santa Fe and the facility has plenty of off street parking. The buffet breakfast is far above average and the afternoon Sherry social hour was very much a plus. We will stay at Inn of the Governors... More

Stayed for 3 nights on a "girls weekend". Great location with a very accommodating staff - their concierge is the best!! Remembered our names after checking in and asked about your transportation needs daily. Rooms are very comfortable with multiple amenities. Breakfast buffet was hit or miss, some mornings better than others in terms of food availability and temperature of... More

My mom's family and my family are staying at this hotel through New Year's. Very comfortable rooms. Breakfast buffet is excellent. Del Charro, the on-site restaurant is great. Staff is very friendly. Located in the heart of Santa Fe. Would definitely recommend this Santa Fe hotel!

Whenever we head out to Santa Fe, we always choose this hotel. Why? I book the Best Value package which gives you free breakfast, parking and a $15 credit to the resident bar, El Charro. The Inn is conveniently located a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of the plaza and its surrounding shops and restaurants. They have tea/... More

We actually stayed here two nights in May 2014 as we were touring the state. The rooms are well maintained and beautifully decorated, and the staff is warm and friendly. The complementary buffet breakfast is amazing and the best I've ever experienced in all of my travels. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Santa Fe.

Lovely staff, clean nice sized rooms, comfortable beds, unusually good breakfast buffet, great value for the money. Despite arriving in the middle of the night the staff greeted us warmly and efficiently. We also enjoyed the wood burning kiva fireplaces in the common rooms and breakfast room.

I recently stayed here for a long weekend with my spouse, sister, and our good family friend. The hotel is beautiful, quaint, and has a lot of perks that no other downtown hotel has. The complimentary breakfast at the Del Charro restaurant is worth the stay by itself. In addition, if you book through the hotel, you receive a 15... More
