I am not truly sure where to begin with this review. For the reader I write reviews from a place of having young children and there is a stigma that you can't have class and elegance and still cater to families. With the Inn, that is all thrown out the door. When i originally made the reservation through a travel website, a call was placed to me and informed me that for the comfort and tranquility of the property and the guests, children, especially young children where better accommodated in the a level above the amenities i had originally booked which amounted to an extra $50.00 a night. The call which was placed by Ariel which did not exude an un-welcoming tone, it was quite the opposite. The call was not to be snobbish or boorish, but really was about the experience my family would have and they recommended two of the Premier rooms which we settled on Bird Song. I made a point to ask if children and families were welcome at the INN and the response was that they were. At that point the hotel asks for a 50% deposit on the room which was seamless and friendly. Upon the confirmation of the room, Ariel reached out to me and wanted to see what they could do for us to. All of that buildup led to to our check-in where we were greeted by the GM of the property who was super friendly and he led us inside the hotel. When we checked in we were offered a beverage of choice, which i rightly chose champagne and as i was going through the check in process with the nice cold glass of bubbles it put me at ease. We were then escorted to the beautifully adorned Birdsong which exuded the culture of both the Apache and Afghan Cultures. The tiles and the wood working were authentic native and the tapestries transported you to a place of hand made silk. Birdsong is perfect for those that would like a very private little patio off the master bedroom where you can enjoy a meal, glass of wine or such amenities while wearing nothing but your robe. Also, for those like me that love to have a late dinner Cigar, the INN is more then accommodating and for those that don't prefer to smell the smoke of such wonderful things, the breakfast and food area is Non-Smoking..So the INN truly caters to all. If you are looking for an overly sanitized Ritz or Four Seasons where you walk down a hall of endless rooms this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a shear authentic and glorious stay with service that is First Class this is the place for you. I could spend the whole day writing about my stay at the Inn but i wish i had such time…Now, for every amazing property their are always downsides…The only fault i can give this 6 star property is that they don't have a full bar on site and getting cocktails beyond champagne, wine and beer is difficult. But that being said, if you truly needed that Scotch, Vodka or Gin, the Hotel would go and purchase it for you and you would never be the wiser. This Hotel which is in the best location in Santa Fe is a true must stay for those that truly have a passion for travel, adventure, luxury and class.
