We had gotten a Living Social deal for the Luxx in January, and used it for a one night get-out-of-dodge mini mini vacation in March. It really is a nice place, but if it weren't for the 50% off deal, we might never had stayed there. Santa Fe boutique hotels are overly pricey - cute and glitzy, but they tend to be a bit sticker-shocking.
The place itself is a bit hard to locate. Using a GPS, we did find it after 3 passes. The hotel sign is very nondescript, and combined with a sushi restaurant's entrance. That said, we found it (but not the parking area behind the property that the email indicated). Walking to the front desk from the entrance and long dark hallway is a little disorientating on your first go. Past the sushi place and a coffee shop, around a corner or two, you find the 'lobby'. The lobby walls are lined with original artwork by a Czech artist, which is cool, and the check-in person is nice and polite. The overall impression is like an old West bordello, complete with a balcony around the ceiling.
The room we got was a few feet from one of the rear entrances, which lead out to the patio and hot tub area, aka smoking area. The door and the gate off of the street all have a code (same as your room - no key cards), but they proved to be unnecessary as they were always unlocked.
There is a $25 per night 'resort fee', for which you get a parking spot in the garage next door, which regularly is $6 if you parked there on your own, a newspaper, and access to the hot tub (I guess). Fortunately we didn't get charged that because there was a computer problem with pulling up our receipt, which was very nice, as I don't even like to pay those fees in Vegas, let alone Santa Fe.
