I've stayed at La Dona Luz twice now, and couldn't imagine a trip to Taos staying anywhere else. I searched the local hotels and B&Bs and noplace had the authentic, historic charm of La Dona Luz. Couple that with the incredibly reasonable price and the convenient location across the street from the Plaza, and it becomes a no-brainer.
My first stay was solo, in the Sonrisa room. Bright, charming, with an extraordinary jumbo whirlpool tun and bathroom mural. My husband and daughter accompanied me on our second stay, in the Yellow Bird Deer Suite. LOVED that suite. Huge four-poster bed and an attached sitting room (where my 8-year-old was able to sleep on the twin-sized couch) that opened up to the patio. We loved the colors and the beautiful artwork everywhere.
We also enjoyed chatting with owner Paco, and on my first trip, Paco's father Carlos, who knows a lot of history about the Inn. We definitely plan to stay again on our next trip to Taos!
