You don't stay at Hotel St. Francis to have an enormous room with ridiculous amenities. You stay at Hotel St. Francis for its superb location in old town Santa Fe. Everything you want to see in old town is merely blocks away. The rooms are indeed tiny (as many other travelers have complained about), but sufficient for sleeping, dressing, and showering. The beds are extremely comfortable (I think I got my two best nights of sleep on a thirteen day vacation there). Parking is a little bit wonky. Their assigned lot next the building is incredibly small and will not fit all the guests. They do have overflow parking in the lot across the street, but make sure you check in first and get your parking pass before heading over. Otherwise the lot attendant will charge you $4 to park then the hotel charges $9 per day (which may or may not be worth it depending on how long you plan to stay and how often you are going to move your car). Also, if parked in the lot across the street, every time you want to leave you have to get a special pass from the front desk that lets you get out of the lot. The whole process was a bit overcomplicated for my liking. I booked last minute and got an awesome deal (20% off the regular nightly rate). As such I was give the room with no view and located right outside of the staircase (what do you expect when you book last minute and for cheap?). The first night was wonderfully quiet. The second much louder as people kept going up or down or the stairs and talking in the hall. Overall, I would stay here again, but only for the 20% discount, not for full price. This hotel is nicely decorated, clean, sophisticated, and has a great location, but those things aren't worth the normal rate of $200 per night to me. Of course, you may have a different opinion.
