My wife and I spent four nights at Eldorado in early November. The clear advantage of this hotel is its location. It's only two blocks from the plaza, the O'Keefe musuem is directly behind it, and Guadalupe street (some fun shops, the farmer markets, some tasty restaurants) is right around the corner. Additionally, the slight distance from the plaza, I think, is a positive as it gives you a little distance from the wandering tourists.
The room itself was pleasant enough. It's spacious and well-designed; it also includes desk space, a small couch, and a coffee table. My wife and I found the mattress to be a little uncomfortable, and the heater/air conditioner had a fairly obnoxious tick that made it somewhat difficult to fall asleep. These were more minor inconveniences rather than deal breakers, however.
You should be aware that the hotel charges $22/night for parking. On the contrary, however, you get free wi-fi and there are plenty of free apples in the lobby.
My wife and I received a discounted rate, which made the room and the hotel as a whole seem well-worth it. However, it should be clear that while this hotel has pretensions of being up-scale, it isn't. There's a creakiness, an aged quality, to the demeanor of this place. They are neither married to some grand tradition nor moving forward as if the hotel is perpetually stuck in 1992.
Perhaps, this last bit of criticism doesn't make sense, and if it doesn't, then I wouldn't worry about it. Book the room in full confidence that you'll have a pleasant stay and will have great access to the heart of Santa Fe.
