The Inn of the Five Graces is not just a hotel. It really is an experience.
Like others, the higher cost caused us to hesitate to book our stay here. Yet, when we factored in that the property was all inclusive with no tipping allowed, including free valet service, a cooked-to-order breakfast, free drinks and snacks (nuts, Snickers, Kit Kat bars, granola bars, brie cheese, crackers, fruit, soft drinks, juices, milk, and more) from the mini-fridge, fresh cookies, homemade chips and salsa, all with spacious and gorgeous rooms located very close to the Plaza, we took a second look. What won us over was the treatment we received from Josh, on the concierge staff. Josh really took care of us from the minute we talked with him to inquire about a stay.
When we arrived, we were greeted with my new favorite three words: You’ve been upgraded! We were given the Lotus room. That’s an amazing way to start off a vacation especially after more than 12 hours of traveling. Our car was parked for us. Our bags were taken from the car directly to our room. Even my coat was hung up in a closet for me! Josh and Kim made certain everything we needed was taken care of when we arrived. Kim suggested some great restaurants and provided the menus for us. Some of the best food service we had during our stay was provided during the breakfasts at the hotel. The servers were delightful and very attentive! The breakfasts were wonderful and the chef didn’t mind custom orders.
The Lotus room was so comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed the custom made wing back chairs for reading, relaxing and even some work that had to be done. The mosaic tile artistry in the kitchen and the bathroom were exquisite and made me smile. The mix of old and new treasures from Asia and Tibet mixed with Southwest touches was genius and absolutely gorgeous.
We were so taken by the decoration at the hotel that we spent our first morning at the Seret & Sons store. It was a must-have experience. The store was like a museum with treasures from palaces from the 1600s and 1700s. Himal was very patient with us and answered all our questions about the furniture, the rugs and more. Do not miss the rug hanging on the back wall that was part of Walt Disney’s personal collection. It was impressive! Also, ask to see the pictures of the work the Serets did to decorate Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Stunning with such attention to detail!
The people, our room and the beautiful décor at the Inn of the Five Graces added to our stay in Santa Fe. Do not think twice about the cost. The experience is worth the splurge!
