If you travel a great deal, all nicer hotels start to look and feel the same. This hotel was incredible. Every detail from ceilings to door knobs were works of art. I found myself studying every detail of every room to truly appreciate the artistry of this amazing place. The room had a gorgeous stone fireplace, soaking tub, full balcony, refrigerator, and the cherry on top...Starbucks coffee/tea for the coffee maker. (There are casitas and more on the property also.) The indoor pool was perfect for the kids, the spa and the services were one of the best I have experienced. The gym had everything I needed and was exceptionally clean. It is also dog friendly, although we did not bring our beloved pooch. ;-) It is truly a diamond in the heart of Taos. We did not experience terrible crowds anywhere we went in Taos - a nice change from our Colorado trip to Beaver Creek. Walk to the historical district, drive 20 minutes to Ski Valley or 25 minutes to Angel Fire. Every restaurant recommended was fabulous (Orlando's was our favorite!) Hotel food was good, but recommended restaurants were far superior. There have been negative reviews about the cleaning staff, but we were pleased with the cleanliness of our room. Service was a bit slow, but we didn't care, we were skiing down mountains. ;-) Park yourself to skip the $20 fee, but the parking staff/valet employees were incredibly kind offering suggestions of places to go, maps to get to point of interests, and even help with a dead battery. I absolutely loved this hotel and all it's artistic glory. No stuffy hotel here, just an incredibly beautiful, artistic, and cozy place to crash after a fun day in New Mexico! I will return without a doubt! One of my favorite vacations by far!
