I stayed here for two nights on a business trip. The good is LOCATION! This hotels is a block off the square, right next door to The Anasazi and within a block of 3 of the top tier restaurants in Santa Fe. The Staff was very friendly and helpful (up until I realized I thought I had left something in the room on checkout and then had difficulty getting a return phone call). The property itself has a definite Santa Fe vibe that is fun. I really enjoyed my stay here.
As for what you should be aware of......it is a pretty dated property. Very small bathroom that even as a solo traveller was cramped. The windows were a nice touch and provided a great breeze in the room but you did need to use sticks to hold the window up lest it slam closed. While the bed was super and very comfortable, the furnishings could have stood some updating. As someone who likes to exercise while traveling the hardwood floors held no appeal to me at all but concede they fit in with the old world vibe quite nicely.
All in all, I liked the property and the staff and would definitely stay again either solo or with my wife. Just set your expectations correctly and you have no worries!
