My husband and I just returned from a pleasant week-long stay at the Inn of the Governors. We opted for a 'traditional' room with a king size bed. Although the room was somewhat smaller than we are used to, it was adequate for our needs. It was tastefully decorated in traditional Santa Fe style, and was comfortable and very clean.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and we regularly enjoyed the sherry social hour hosted by the manager each evening in the very comfortable lobby. The breakfasts, included in the price of the room, were absolutely amazing! Each morning we were greeted with a fabulous buffet of delicious breakfast foods, including eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, hot and cold cereal, fresh fruit, assorted breads, the freshest pastries, and always another surprise or two (pancakes, waffles, etc.). Everything was so delicious! This is truly the best complimentary breakfast we've ever enjoyed at a hotel. We also appreciated the lovely, warm fires, blazing in the kiva fireplaces, in the breakfast rooms on cool mornings.
The location of this hotel cannot be beat for convenience. It sits in the heart of beautiful, charming Old Town Santa Fe, just a few short blocks from the Plaza, within easy walking distance to countless restaurants, art galleries, museums and shops. There are other perks that make this place a great deal - like the free parking, which is a rarity in the downtown area of Santa Fe. As we discovered on previous trips to Santa Fe, those parking fees can really add up. It was so wonderful to not have to worry about that this time.
We've stayed at five different places in previous trips to Santa Fe and, when we factor in price, convenience, value for the dollar, service, location, and miscellaneous perks, this hotel ranks at the top. We will definitely stay here again. Next time we might even opt for a deluxe room with a fireplace!
