I recently had a business meeting at The Eldorado Hotel & Spa in Santa Fe. From the beginning, things were looking good. I gave the keys to valet and they invited me inside. The lobby was large with plenty of seating, great subtle southwest style. I headed to The Agave Lounge which had been recently renovated and it was packed at 5pm! We shared a Spinach & Artichoke Dip with Feta and Tortilla Chips - great and not to thick or thin. Also had Lobster Sliders... yes, lobster sliders! They were delicious. The lounge had tons of specialty drinks based on the Agave theme. It was really busy but the service remained friendly and attentive. We discovered daily specials like the Monday Kobe Sliders for $1, Tuesday $2 Lobster Sliders, Wednesday $1 Tenderloin Tacos and $2 Thursdays' Crab Cake Sliders. The artwork was very cool with a piece by Anthony Abbate appropriately called "Agave" in the entrance.
After eating, we toured the restaurant, The Old House and ended up eating there the next night. The service was elegant and the restaurant matched that style, a pleasant fine dining experience. It seemed perfectly seasonal to try the Pumpkin Soup which had a light kick to it, delicious. Keeping with the fall season, the Pan Roasted Breast of Pheasant was amazing with a variety of mushrooms inside and a maderia orange sauce.
We found out that the 5th floor has a swimming pool and next time we stay, I'm definitely taking advantage of that. Overall, the Eldorado Hotel & Spa was a great place to stay and also visit. Rooms are quaint with fireplaces and a view looking over the downtown area.
