We were originally booked at Hotel Santa Fe, which is a quaint hotel -- nice for a couple or 2 adults and one child - warm and inviting, good breakfast. Although this was a nice hotel, it was really too small for our family, 2 adults and 3 children. I phoned up the sister property, Las Palomas (Zona Rosa), and they were able to book us in a 2 bedroom condo with a fireplace, and two bathrooms. The Zona Rosa was perfect for us, and we were able to stretch out. The condo had a full kitchen with cookware and utensils, a washer and dryer on-site, tile floors, comfy beds, private patio, flat panel t.v. with dvd player, firewood, and a fabulous breakfast was included with free cappucino/ espresso, fruit, cereals, yogurt, and waffles in the lobby of the hotel. I don't agree with the other review that this place is in the Ghetto. In fact, it is in a quiet place on the same street, just 3 blocks away, that goes into the famous plaza, for shopping and good eats. They also have free wireless in the condo, parking and a free shuttle that takes you around town. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the lobby was great for the family with a fireplace, puzzles and games for the kids - we will definitely stay there again.
Tips : There is a Trader Joes for grocery shopping 5-10 minutes away, or Whole Foods, which is closer, though a bit more pricey.
* Allow a day or so to acclimate to the higher altitude.
