My sister and I stayed one night at the Hyatt Place Santa Fe in November. We arrived earlier than expected and the gentleman at the front desk allowed us to check in early, which was great. We found the hotel to be very clean and well-kept. We didn't try breakfast, so I can't comment on that. Being there on a Wednesday night, it wasn't too busy. The spa and pool are indoors and we had those all to ourselves.
We had a room with two beds and thought the beds were better than we usually experience when we travel, which means pretty soft. As for location, we had a car and were able to drive into the downtown area easily. The hotel is right off of I-25 and easy to locate. There is a Walmart and several stores located along the same street.
If you don't mind being a short drive away from the downtown area, this is a great hotel. For those who like to be close to the sights, it's definitely too far of a walk for most people, and on a busy road. Overall, I'd recommend this hotel and stay there if I were to be in Santa Fe again.
