I couldn't decide whether to rate this hotel average or very good. The grounds are unique, serene and beautiful. We enjoyed the setting of the hotel. We booked a Mountain View room that was nicely appointed and clean. It looks just as the photos depict. The 'bathroom' can be completely open to the room (except for the toilet) or shut off by curtains. In a strange place at night we like to have some kind of lighting to guide us to the bathroom, but like to sleep in a dark room. The best we could do was to pull all the curtains and leave the makeup light burning. It was still very bright. The second night we kept our phones handy to use as flashlights. The room had a gas fireplace, as well as a balcony. Very nice. However I got the impression that once one built the beautiful hotel, he or she lost interest in the project! One of the most pleasant and appreciated parts of our stay was our interactions with a very professional valet named Marcos.. He simply could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The biggest downside to the stay was the restaurant. The food was simply not good. In fact it was awful! There's no happy hour in the bar -- really no reason to try to eat or drink there. The hotel is .4 of a mile from the historic pueblo. A pleasant, doable walk. We had breakfast at Michael's one morning. It was such a treat-- perhaps the best meal of our 8 day trip. It's a very humble place, buzzing with locals. Try it! To get there make a right at the major stoplight between the hotel and the pueblo. Walk about 4 or maybe 5 blocks. It's on your left. We had drinks at the Taos Inn. Great bar. And they do have a happy hour. One more tip: Be sure to drive the 20 mins or so to see the Gorge Bridge. Well worth it!
