“Santa Fe's Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We have visited Santa Fe many times and can say that staying here made the trip more enjoyable than usual.

The property is small and just far enough from the center of town to be quiet without being inconvenient for walking. We were attracted to the Inn by its website photos and weren't disappointed. We stayed in two different rooms during our three-night visit, and both were beautiful, showing lots of attention to detail and design. The mosaic bath tile work was a great artistic feature of both rooms. Breakfast on the sunny courtyard patio was a great way to start the days, and although the menu was somewhat limited, the food was very good. Service from the staff was very helpful with recommending restaurants that were new since our last visit.

A wonderful stay!

The Inn of the Five Graces in Santa Fe provides an outstanding combination of gracious service, beautiful decor, excellent food and a surprising degree of isolation from the numerous tchachke and jewelry stores of Santa Fe village. The combination of Moroccan and southwest decor, deliciously comfortable beds and seating, and luxurious bathing options justify the high cost.

Our only disappointments were with (1) the concierge service: we were promised maps and other information with our evening turndown, but it did not appear as promised. The information we did receive from Rebecca about access to Bandelier was quite out of date, causing us to waste precious time trying to follow her directions. (2) Our room was adjacent to a 4am garbage pickup truck that disturbed our sleep.

Room Tip: Inner rooms better than peripheral, to avoid street noise.

Just spent week in Santa Fe for Indian Market Week, opera and friends, and stayed at the Inn of the Five Graces. This is, by far, the most beautiful, charming, imaginative, comfortable and friendly hotel experience we’ve ever had. The quality of everything is outstanding, and that includes an amazing staff that, to a person, makes you feel at home from the moment of arrival.
We stayed in Jade, which was sumptuously decorated and provided a unique and unpretentious luxury, comfort and convenience for our anniversary.
We thank the Serets for their vision and dedication in providing this experience.

Room Tip: All rooms stunning, best beds and pillows I've ever slept on. Some of rooms have larger kitchens...

As befits "the city different", this is not a standard-issue five-star hotel. It has no pool and no restaurant of its own. However, given its location, either side of a small side-road (E de Vargas St) in the centre of walkable Santa Fe, neither of these two things matters at all.

What you do get are generously sized rooms decorated with a touch of genius, a first-rate free breakfast, wonderful staff and a super location. It is expensive, but soft-drinks from the minibar and wifi and breakfast are all free, which compensates for this (compensates quite a lot, given what I have paid for these extras elsewhere). Room service is available from two nearby restaurants under the same ownership - but equally this is not the kind of stuck-up place where you can't order in a pizza from anywhere.

In its way, this is a template for a new kind of luxury hotel - without the usual bluster and pomposity - the money instead goes towards architecture and helpful, intelligent staff, rather than on a lot of gratuitous and unmemorable nonsense.

We all loved it.

Room Tip: We were very well advised by the hotel itself.

We arrived after a 700 mile road trip, and no fewer than 4 people helped us - and our 2 dogs - get settled. Waiting in the suite were treats and stuffed animals for the animals, and more-than-we-could-consume goodies for us in the refrigerator. The only down side was that we couldn't enjoy the Five Graces longer, as we left the crack of dawn the next day. Yes, the suite was a bit pricey - so on a dollar/per hour basis for us it was comparable to the RitzI But, it was a wonderful respite on a long trip. Btw, in our pre-dawn exit I left my laptop in the room, which they FedEx'd to our next location...Service to the end!

All the previous reviews are true for all the reasons mentioned: friendly and knowledgeable staff (thanks Sharif and Joshua!), super rooms, location, food, etc. etc. I'll share a bit more about our suite, which like all the others, is unique.

We chose Camellia, the smallest suite, for our five night stay and found it fit us well. It is totally quiet and dark, with it's own small courtyard behind a gate. The courtyard has a small table with two chairs plus an arch of lights above. It is very secluded. There is a small entryway that houses a wardrobe, and other essentials such as the refrigerator, coffee maker and dishes - all behind cabinet-type doors. A small table to hold the evening treats plus glassware and more water completes the entryway. To the right is the bedroom with a king bed (sumptuous bedding), fireplace, two chairs, drawers with the tv atop, a desk and two nightstands. The view from the bedroom includes two windows to Camellia's private courtyard and a larger window out to the main patio area (not the eating area). There are wooden shutters plus drapes which makes this sooo dark that it was almost humorous when we awoke at night. I do suggest a small flashlight. The tiled bathroom is off the entryway and includes a large walk in shower, single vanity and skylight. It does not have a tub. We had the opportunity to see some of the others suites and compared to them, Camellia is small, however we found it totally adequate for the two of us - we do not travel lightly but still found ample space to store everything. It is still much larger than most hotel rooms.

Each night we would sit in the larger courtyard and enjoy a glass of wine. Just a totally super experience and we hope to return in the winter.

Room Tip: We liked Camellia for this visit as it had no one above or below us. Many of the suites do have som...

Stayed here last week and couldn't have been more pleased. We were in the Lavender room, with a full kitchen, living room, den and bed and bath. As other reviewers have mentioned, they greeted us with champagne, valeted our car for free, and set us up with restaurant reccos and reservations (try Restaurant Martin), day trips (we went up to Taos for the day).

Breakfast is free and delicious each morning - eggs, pancakes, french toast, whatever you like, as much as you like ;). Fridges are stocked with sodas/water, candy and snacks. They have bottles of wine for sale, and will do meal service from the 315 Restaurant and Wine Bar across the street (a good place to drop in for wine).

Only nit....... the room was a teensy bit dark. But we spent our days exploring the beautiful area so it wasn't an issue for us.
