“Located just 3 minutes on foot from main plaza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

The best thing about this hotel is surely its location. There are other hotels in the area but these are probably more pricey. The complimentary tea, sherry and cucumber water at tea time were welcome as was the swimming pool after trudging around the museums all day. The rooms are fine BUT can be noisy: you can hear the traffic as the guest room doors lead to an external corridor. There is ample car parking space too and complimentary wifi.

The southwest-style rooms I expected of such an art rich city. Such attention to detail, a perfect gem in a great central location. Sherry on the patio in the afternoon was a classy touch. My four year old loved the pool and there is a deeper end to separate the adults who crave peace. Breakfast was delicious, several types of eggs, sausage, tortillas and sweet rolls. I will definitely stay here again!

We stayed one night on our way from the airport in Albuquerque to Pagosa Springs, CO. The hotel is lovely and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Beautiful pool and breakfast area. We ate in the restaurant (on the corner) and had a great evening. Beds and rooms were very comfortable. Free parking and located within walking distance of all sites - the Plaza, Georgia O"Keefe Museum, shopping and dining. Excellent complimentary breakfast.

Small pool. No gym. Large, large room 256 with balcony with table and two seats Bath with extra sink. Sofa and chair with ottoman.
Lovely tiles and so on. As others have said, there is a free breakfast-excellent oatmeal and fresh fruit. Good coffee! The parking spots are tight. But you can walk everywhere. Public computers

We headed from TX to CO. Though we would do an overnight in Santa Fe. Great hotel w/ breakfast included. Good parking area and you wont have to move your car again if you are visiting downtown. Very close to shops and restaurants. We decided to stay there on our way back too. It'll be our stop-over from now on.

Room Tip: I heard some rooms dont have windows; both times I visited I didn't see that. The pool is nice...

We stayed here and it was an easy walk to the plaza and other local attractions. The free parking onsite was very convenient. Excellent breakfast each morning and the staff were all very helpful and friends. Several people stayed here for a friend's wedding and we were all very pleased. Excellent location in Santa Fe, clean rooms, and nice staff. Next time I would like to book one of the larger rooms with the corner fireplace - very cozy!

Room Tip: Some rooms have little balconies. There are also larger suites that have corner fireplaces and our...

We stayed here only one night and arrived well after midnight. The staff was waiting for us and checked us in without delay. The breakfast buffet was extensive. The room was clean, somewhat small but cozy. The property is well located to visit the plaza area.
