Walked into the reception area and was greeted, by name by the General Manager of the Inn and the restaurant (Vanessie's). She recalled the last time we dined at Vanessies, and remembered where we worked, what we had talked about... and it was several years ago, before Vanessie's acquired the Inn. This superb level of warmth and friendliness extends to all staff who are caring and exceptional.
The rooms at the Inn are decorated in very chic and comfortable Santa Fe style with beautiful custom fabrics, lovely tiles and in some rooms, artwork as it so happens, by a dear friend of mine. We were in a beautiful small room, Pecos to start, which is gorgeous and outfitted with desk, mini fridge, and leather comfy chair. We then moved to a suite, with large separate sitting area: sofa, easy chair. Desk and work area. Beds are big and comfortable, water is supplied for all guests: you are in the high desert and the Innkeepers provide a printed overview of altitude sickness in every room.
While each room does not have a bathtub, the showers are excellent.
Continental breakfast includes eggs and a side dish. One morning the side dish was potatoes with green chilies that added a NM touch, another AM it was eggs with the most extraordinary applewood smoked bacon Ive ever eaten.
The location is just a short walk from the Plaza, and in the in-room book, the Innkeepers suggest museums and nearby restaurants including Vanessies and others. They really do go out of their way to make sure your visit to Santa Fe and the Inn at Vanessies is all you could want.
BTW: dont forget to bring a swimsuit: there's a hot tub for guests.
I've traveled to Santa Fe close to 50 times over the years for business and personal trips, and I can say that there is now no need for me to try any other inn or hotel.
Why you come to Santa Fe starts at the Inn at Vanessie. There is no reason to stay any place else.
