“Always an incredible, charming experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I have stayed at the Inn and Spa at Loretto numerous times. Without a doubt it is has the best central location for walking to "everything". The hotel is charming with incredible food at the Luminaria, hotel staff caters to their guests....best place to stay in downtown Santa Fe.

My partner and I stayed here for a week over Thanksgiving last year. It's a very romantic setting, very convenient location, and with great service. We brought our little dog and found the hotel very pet friendly. The concierge was most helpful in giving local advice and assisting with bookings. The spa was very relaxing. The hotel is charming and I only have very positive things to say about it. We received an upgraded room, and the balcony was a nice feature.

We bought two nights to celebrate our anniversary through Living Social. It was a great deal and even more so, once we got there. The hotel is wonderfully located in the center of Downtown Santa Fe so you can walk everywhere. The Santa Fe River is right across the street and we had my husband's service dog, so that was very convenient. The rooms are quite large and comfortable with a couch and two chairs. Everyone from check in to the housekeeping staff to the valets were extremely nice and cordial. It was a most pleasant experience and I would certainly go there again.

Room Tip: All of them were great and I didn't find that noise was an issue even though we were on the seco...

Green Features: I was very impressed with the windows I could open and let the breeze flow through without being worried about security and their heating and cooling system was excellent with automatic turn off if you get to a certain temperature and stay there.

We have stayed here previously for business and our most recent trip was for just one night. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, with a small seating area and fireplace. We thought there was no in-room coffee, so we went down to the lobby in the morning, but our friends in another room found a coffeemaker in the cabinet under the TV - good to know! The location is perfect for walking to the Plaza and Canyon Road and the hotel definitely has an upscale feel. We came back after dinner out on Saturday night to live music in the bar area, but no seats to be had. It is a lovely property with lots of amenities, but we probably wouldn't spend the $275 for one night again when our time in Santa Fe is spent out in the town, not in the hotel.

Having stayed here on many occasions and trying the many other fine places to stay in Santa Fe the Inn and Spa at Loretto is a great place for the location and value. Yes my heading is like an old shoe that is because the place maintains its old charm and it feels comfortable like that of an old shoe that you know how it is going to feel. While you are dealing with an old hotel if you understood this going in then great you will not be disappointed. Yes there is the Rosewood and it is fabulos but the price is much greater. The spa is dated but if you are going looking for a quality massage then again you will not be disappointed. Ask for Sarah if you want a strong deep tissue therapeutic massage, you will have to ask for her when making your appointment.
Their restaurant is great for dinner and breakfast. Take time to unwind in their spacious lobby bar.
The service from the valet, check in and restaurant were all doing a great job. If you can ask to view your room because they have many different types. I prefer the 4 th floor junior suite with balcony overlooking the Loretto chapel. Also you will find mostly older couples.
Again there are a lot of choices at all levels of prices, I stay at many depending on what I plan on doing in Santa Fe

Room Tip: Jr suite on 4 th floor overlooking the Loretto chapel

Central location to the plaza. A beautiful, old building with Aztec interior decorative work. Perfect for first time visitors who want to avoid the car and wish to visit the museums and restaurants on foot. Also, the hotel really reflects old town Santa Fe and one feels immediately part of the city upon arrival - a genuine experience, rather than a chain hotel feel. Hotel restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere and the staff were exceptional - at check-in, valet staff, waiters etc.

My husband and I stayed here last week on our first trip to Santa Fe to celebrate my birthday. It was in the perfect location; close to everything we wanted to see. Upon our arrival, Ross checked us in and gave us an excellent overview of the property. For the rest of the week, each time he saw us he greeted us by name, which made us feel welcome. Our room had an excellent view with a patio and the bed was so comfortable! On our second to the last night in town, we dined at Luminaria, which was by far the best meal of our trip. Marilyn and Melissa took great care of us and were knowledgeable about the menu, offering excellent recommendations on wines and entrees. My husband ordered the tortilla soup and the special that evening, which featured steak with hollandaise, bacon, and other goodies, which he enjoyed very much. I had a grilled romaine salad (a nice twist on a classic Caesar) and the Chilean sea bass, both of which were amazing. Desserts did not disappoint; over the course of the week between the bar and restaurant, I think I tried them all! The Chef stopped by at one point during our meal to see how we were enjoying things, which was a nice touch. I must say, Luminaria is the perfect example of excellent food and top notch service in a warm and inviting atmosphere. We had dined earlier in the week at a well known restaurant on Canyon Road, and while the food there was very good, the extensive formality and somewhat pretentiousness off the staff and atmosphere left us underwhelmed. Our meal at Luminaria made up for this and was the highlight of our trip.
The last night of our stay, when we returned to our room, we found a bottle of the Albarino I had enjoyed the previous night at dinner, along with a happy birthday note from Marilyn. As someone who has worked in hotel management for many years, this attention to detail was much appreciated.
All in all, we had an amazing visit to Santa Fe and would recommend Loretto and Luminaria to anyone. Many thanks to their wonderful staff for leaving us with such fine memories of our vacation!
