We have vacationed in Santa Fe at least two times a year since 1991. It was our first stay at this hotel. I have an elderly dog and was looking for something close to the plaza and easy for my dog to get around but required a nice experience for my husband and I. We booked hotel chimayo based on the location and the website information. I called the hotel and spoke to Alex. She was extremely helpful and gave me a detailed description of the property and how it would accommodate us and my dog. She helped us figure out which room would be the best for us. Upon arrival, we were so pleased with the lobby and especially the courtyard. We had a small table and chairs outside our door for morning coffee. The room was a mission suite and was great. The bed was comfortable, the living room had a dining table, coffee table and banco seating plus a fireplace. You call the front desk and they send someone to start the fire for you. Oscar started our fires and was so friendly and added to the quaintness of the whole experience. We were so happy there. We wish the bathroom was a little larger but it is an historic building so we don't complain. We could not have been happier with our stay. The staff and the property are wonderful plus you are less than a block from the plaza.
I've read some of the complaints on this site and most are because it is a historic building and not as modern as new buildings. But if you want modern buildings then stay at holiday inn and leave the cultural and historic experiences for those of us who appreciate it. This is a wonderful facility and a beautiful experience of the New Mexican heritage.
