I had never been out west per se and didnt know where to start so Santa Fe seemed to be a good place to start. The Inn and Spa at Loretta was highly recommend and I can see why.This charming boutique style hotel was perfectly located Santa Fe a block off the main Square and was easy walking distance to most shops, restaurants and many local attractons. The lobby area was open and charming and had a mini mall with art inspired galleries that flowed into the reception area. The reception area flowed into the lounge & bar area which overlooked the pool. The lounge area is truly a work of art with its rustic charm intermingled with an amazing hand carved art inspired ceiling that is truly spectacular and fits the space perfectly. I rarely would mention a ceiling in a review but this really is worth a look! The same artisit also did work in the elevators as well and carries the art inspired theme throught the hotel.There are historical pictures and art all over the hotel and this was a nice touch in unfying the space. .The rooms were very comfortable and were decorated with a mix of southwest style and tradtional style. Our room had the Kiva fireplace and a small sitting area and we had a nice rustic four poster bed. The room was impeccably clean and quiet and had a small balcony where you could enjoy breakfast or a meal.Unfortuneatly, the balcony was a common one where guests from other rooms on your level could walk past your french doors at any time. creating a bit of a secuiry concern.Had the hotel made seperations in between the rooms which could be done fairly easily I think this would have been a much wiser choice. The only other thing I thought was odd was that there were no safes in the room. The bathroom closet which sported an iron,ironing board, robes and slippers was a bit tight but there was room to add a safe. I understand these are in the works so this should be remedied in the near future. Overall the room was very comfortable and quiet and very enjoyable. I would recommend the Junior Suites as they are much more spacious and deliver more square footage. There are also 5 speciaty suites as well but book early as these tend to fill up fast! The Spa there was devine and I can see why its rated in the Conde Nast top 20 in the US. Excellent treatments rooms, aromatherapy and persoanble staff made my facilal a wonderful experience. There is a private elevator that takes you right into the spa so you can slip into your robe and slippers and go right into the spa. Overall this was a lovely place to stay and with a few execptions provided a great value compared to more pricier options closeby.The location was perfect and you could walk to several dozen restaurants and shops within 10-15 minutes. We had a car but never used it as it was so central to everything. The Luminaria Restaurant was amazing so please look at my seperate review of that. The food was heavenly and showed why this is one of the top ranked restaurants in Santa Fe !
