“Not downtown, but the rooms make up for it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We stayed at the Residence Inn and were not disappointed. We were allowed to upgrade with our Gold status and had the largest apartment we have ever stayed in, in the Marriott chain. We walked downtown it is only 1.8 miles through interesting neighborhoods. Breakfast is the typical Marriott fare. With Whole Foods a mile away and a full kitchen we had no problem making a dinner and eating on the outside deck. The swimming pool is small, with plenty of seating around the pool, they also have a hot tub for 4. Shuttle can take you downtown, just ask. Give it a try, lots of families were there when we were.

Room Tip: If you have Gold Elite Status be sure to upgrade.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights for a business trip and loved it. It is located in a quiet area so it is suitable for people who are sensitive to noise. Ask for a room on the second floor and away from the main road. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and eager to assist in any way they can. Leo, the hotel shuttle drive, was kind enough to drop me off at the meeting place and picked us up after the meeting and then dropped me off again at downtown. The only downside was there was not a whole lot of places close by for lunch/dinner. But since I only have time for a quick lunch, that did not bother me too much. And the hotel offers free shuttle to the airport.

All in all, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and I would stay here again next time I visit Santa Fe.

This is the 2nd hotel we've stayed in while visiting Santa Fe in the last 12 months. We opted for something on the opposite side of town this time. Residence Inn is right next to the Santa Fe hospital, about 10 minutes south of the plaza. Getting there is easy, and check in was straight forward. Ours was a 2nd floor suite, and we enjoyed the unique villa layout. It was nice to step out of the room into the beautiful New Mexico outdoors. To us, it was worth not having an elevator. The room was pretty good; it included a full kitchen and a couch. Our only issue with the room was that the bathtub looked a little dated and the walls seemed a little thin. But the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The hot breakfast was decent, but not too spectacular. While we liked the last hotel we stayed in better, this one seemed to be ok for anyone interested in staying a little closer to the plaza and for anyone visiting the hospital.

The second story rooms have a balcony with a door that locks behind you. No way to open it unless you call the front desk. So bring a mobile device and the hotel's phone number. Also, it would help not to go out on the balcony without someone to cover for you in the room. I was alone for a while, contemplated jumping. Didn't. After the episode, the desk people said I should have screamed. Not suitable for kids and those prone to leg breaks from second story falls. Otherwise, a normal R.I with kitchen, morning breakfast buffet, occasional happy hour, but few bathroom amenities. Close to downtown; a straight drive.

Room Tip: Not the second floor unless you're athletic

As far as I'm concern , for the price and amenities , i would live here. These employes are the best , for the past !5 years I've stayed here for Indian Market, you can not beat it. And the days after market , such a pleaser to just relax. I have stayed at 4 other places during market time, and i keep; coming back to Residence inn.

Room Tip: Try not to stay next to the sports court.

My sisters and I had a week long vacation in this hotel. It is a very nice facility with very nice rooms and a good breakfast. The only reason I rated it a 4 is because the buildings are separate villas; therefore, there are no elevators.

Room Tip: If steps are a problem, read the website carefully. The staff is very willing to carry your luggage...

We booked this hotel hoping it was at a walkable distance from the city center but, unfortunately you have to take your car to move towards the central Plaza. Considering that we love to explore the landscape and the beautiful nature outside the town, this is not a big issue, but it can be if you like to go out for dinner (all the best restaurants are around the Plaza) and not to worry about what and how much you drink.....
Anyway, the staff is friendly and attentive. Our room had a fireplace and it was clean and spacious, with a beautiful small balcony overlooking the pool. To access to our room we needed to climb a staircase, which is not very practical if you had a heavy suitcase.
We definitely enjoyed our long weekend in Santa Fe and we recommend this hotel and its amenities (good breakfast, pool with hot tub, easy parking lot) as a base for exploring the surroundings (Taos, Chimayo', Ghost Ranch,...).
