This is one of the most convenient locations to stay in Santa Fe. I enjoy the boutique look of the hotel and while there are some parts I found slightly annoying, the pluses make up for it.
Hotel Chimayo is located right in the heart of the historical, downtown plaza of Santa Fe. There are museums, shopping, and restaurants not even a block away. The beds are comfortable and rooms clean. My boyfriend had originally booked a suite, but something unknown happened and we ended up in a junior suite, however, our room was fine. I appreciated the mood lighting, including the rustic chandelier. I was concerned at first that WiFi was advertised as only available in the lobby, but I had service in my room with no problem. The bathroom door is annoying as the bathroom is tiny, but it wasn't terribly difficult to close it. I was also uneasy when I read a review that the rooms have coffee makers, but no carafe. I discovered that the coffee-maker is suited for the disposable cups provided in the pantry area. I absolutely loved the balcony. My other concern was a traveler who had his or her car broken into in the underground parking lot, but we had no issues with this.
While only a personal obstacle at first, travelers should be aware that there are several flights of stairs, especially leading up to the second floor rooms. I have acute knee pain and was bothered at first because of a hike the first day we arrived. If you have any physical or health limits, be sure to book a lower floor.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely come back!
