My new husband and I chose Inn and Spa at Loretto as the place to stay for our wedding weekend in Santa Fe. We had visited several hotels in town, but there were several things we really liked about Loretto. We liked the room decor-- the warm, southwestern red colored walls and the stuffed animals on the beds. The "Living Room" bar/lounge area also caught our eye as a comfortable place to get a drink with our friends.
We stayed 5 nights in a "deluxe" room. It had a kiva fireplace (with candles instead of wood or gas), a 4-posted bed, and a balcony (shared with the room next door). The rooms were very quiet: we did not hear any noises from next door. I took advantage of the heated pool several mornings for a little swim.
The bar was a bit of a disappointment in that it closed early (along with the rest of Santa Fe, it seems). I was told that May is still their "winter" season, and that in June they would be open an hour later.
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, from the valets to the front desk to the concierge. The day before our wedding I had a minor emergency with my dress, and the concierge made several phonecalls to find a dry cleaner who would be able to help me.
Overall, we had a fantastic, relaxing stay at Loretto and were sad to leave. True, the price is steep, especially when you tack on the high resort taxes plus $18/day valet parking + $12/day "service fee". These rates ARE comparable to the other downtown hotels so that's kind of just what it costs. The hotel location, amenities, and overall experience are excellent. We look forward to coming back soon.
P.S. Be sure to try the blue corn pancakes at breakfast in the Luminaria Restaurant!
