My mother-in-law and I just took our first trip to Santa Fe and stayed at the Inn on the Alameda. We were impressed as soon as we arrived. The lobby and the grounds are decorated in a lovely and understated Santa Fe style. The staff is friendly and helpful, even arranging a massage for me on very short notice on the day of our arrival. The location is perfect, close to the Plaza but far away enough to be able to get away from the tumult for some peace and quiet. Our room was nicely decorated, very clean and very quiet. I'm a light sleeper and I slept great all three nights we were there. If I have any complaint at all is was that the bathroom was a bit small. The breakfast buffet was better than some 5 star hotels I've stayed in with a great selection of fruit, hot frittatas and breakfast burritos, and delicious bakery items. I'd absolutely recommend the Inn to anyone traveling to Santa Fe.
