My husband and I stayed in Santa Fe for a week, and had the opportunity to stay at Las Palomas. We were on a “second honeymoon” to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and genuinely enjoyed our stay.
Our casita was the perfect alternative to a stuffy room at one of the overpriced hotels on the Plaza. We stayed in #36, and loved our fully equipped kitchen, small living room, bathroom, and cozy bedroom. It was tastefully decorated and had a charming, romantic feel. It also had a back porch with 2 wooden rocking chairs and the living room had a leather couch. Parking was also conveniently located next to the casitas. Las Palomas is a very short walk from the plaza, which was very important to us. There was never a need to utilize transportation unitl we went to the opera, restaurants along Canyon Road, or to visit neighboring towns.
Every morning, a buffet-style breakfast was available in the lobby. This entailed juices, melons, fresh coffee, bagels, muffins, cereal, and hard boiled eggs. The service staff was very extremely attentive and they replenished any items as needed. You could also order an espresso drink or homemade waffle at no extra charge. The coffee and strawberry waffles hit the spot!
Las Palomas is made up of 3 sections: 1 section is next to the office (this is where we stayed), and the other areas two are located across the street, which seemed a bit awkward. The landscaping in which we stayed had lovely flower gardens, gas lamps, and walks adorned with this gorgeous tile. The areas across the street didn’t seem quite as attractive.
My only bit of criticism is that our casita did not have robes as it states in the website, and there was a rug that nearly caused a couple horrific falls. In addition, the hot tub was located across the street. We had no drawers anywhere in the casita. There was only an armoire for the bedroom television with a couple of shelves, so we opted to store most of belongings under the bed. There was no safe available, but felt that the neighborhood was relatively safe. On the other hand, we got along just fine without the robes, hot tube, drawers, and safe, and kicked the rug to the side.
On a final note, the staff was very friendly, and felt that the casitas were well worth the money spent. We are considering a return in January and wouldn’t hesitate to return to Las Palomas.
