I will keep it simple...
Having traveled extensively and done the "resort thing", including the last time in Santa Fe, my wife and I wanted something alittle lower key, indiginous and cozy. The Inn of the Governors was an excellent find. We stayed for 6 days and 5 nights. Other positive reviews were generally right on, which is why we picked this establishment and you just cannot please everyone.
The location was within walking distance to the Plaza shops (200 yds). The staff had an excellent attitude and were very helpful (examples: we got in late one night and there were no more parking places, so the gentlemen at the front desk volunteered to move his car, so we would have a space, and another time we arrived at the end of breakfast and asked if there were any more newspapers, the staff member said to grab our breakfast (which was very well presented) and he went down the street and got some more. The point is we were just being gracious guests and they were stepping up thier game to be very accomidating. It is these little things in the service industry that people remember and make a place stand out above the rest. We got the "upgraded" room with a kiva (fireplace) and if that is your thing, it sure is worth it. These rooms are in the main building, are accessable by an elevator or stairs and have an interior entry door, which is better in the winter months and the noise was minimal. They give you a choice on what time you want your room made up and the rooms are very clean and well kept. The bathrooms are on the small size, but also well mantained and appointed. The saloon (bar) has a very feastive atmosphere, where locals and guests interact, and very reasonably priced drinks and food (corn and green chile chowder is excellent). Hope this helps....
Overall this was an excellent find and we would return the next time in the Santa Fe area.
