One of the nicest hotels in Santa Fe. Mikhailo was extremely helpful and nice with everything during my stay. I will definitely recommend this place to all my friends and family for their visits to Santa Fe
We usually stay at the La Fonda but decided to give the Chimayo a try and we were very pleased. The location is great as it is just off the corner of the Plaza. We had a small suite with a fireplace, which we used every night as it was quite cold out. The bed has to have been one of the most comfortable hotel beds we have ever experienced. Everything was very clean. The only 2 draw backs to the room was the tiny bathroom as there was hardly any room to turn around in it and the very poor lighting in the bedroom. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The added Resort Fee came as a surprise. It is certainly not stated very well and did not show up on our original printed out confirmation! If you are going to have extra charges they should be up front and easily seen!!! Never-the-less, we will stay again in the future.…
The communication and great service started before we even decided to stay. I was looking for something in the downtown area but this was a last minute spring break trip for my wife, son and me. It was hard to find anything for our dates. I called Hotel Chimayo and was greeted by a very friendly and helpful lady who explained that we could stay the dates we wanted but would need to change rooms after the first day. This was fine with us since we valued being close to the plaza. Our trip in was a very long road trip from Austin, our first road trip in our electric vehicle. Despite our padded estimates that first day's drive was a doozy - 16 hrs, arriving much later than estimated. The hotel kept in touch via text message. They knew we were road tripping and likely to arrive late. It was nice to be able to keep them updated on our ETA. We were greeted very warmly by a gentleman on staff that night. Despite the underground parking being full, he was able to accommodate us, allowing us to park anyway as unobtrusively as possible. We gave him a key in case he needed to move it later. He also gave us a map of the area, explained local attractions and gave us keys and directions to our room. He was aware of our planned room switch after the first night and told us he made a note to expedite housekeeping preparation for the room switch the next day. He was attentive, aware of our specific arrangement, anticipated our needs and acted proactively. That's the definition of service, folks! The room was rustic and charmingly decorated - think "ski lodge". It had a sink area with a Keurig and some coffee pods, a microwave. One main living room area with an armchair and sofa and an adjacent room with a King bed. There was a small balcony facing the library parking lot on one side of the hotel. During the day, looking off to the right you can see the Cross of the Martyrs at the top of the hill and a bit of the mountain behind it. I think they call rooms on this side of the hotel "mountain view" although that might be a bit of a stretch. It's really a view of the surrounding streets/parking lots although it's true that you can get a glimpse of the mountain on this side of the hotel. A nice surprise for us is that each room has a wood burning fireplace and you can request a fire in the evenings. A staff member brings some firewood up to the room and lights the fire, leaving some extra wood on the side so you can keep it going. Breakfast not included but there are soooo many excellent choices nearby that it didn't bother us. I should note they did offer a few items near the front desk like yogurt, fruit (?) - can't remember the details. Not what I'd consider a full breakfast but they did have a few options. The location is amazing. It is literally one block from the plaza. Much of the historic downtown area is walking distance and this puts you right smack dab in the middle of it. There's a great coffee shop across the library parking lot - The Mud Hut. A couple of doors down is The Burrito Company, great for breakfast/lunch. The Plaza Cafe on the plaza served what I'd say is my favorite breakfast of the whole trip: blue corn enchiladas. The Shed, a famous and super popular restaurant is one street over - get in line around 4 pm for dinner reservations around 6 or 7. Church of St Francis of Asisi is maybe two blocks down. Georgia O'Keefe museum is a 10 min was on the other side of the plaza. Seriously, you can't beat the location. Wonderful, attentive staff, nice rooms, great location. Looking back on our trip, Santa Fe and this hotel in particular was one of the highlights and we wished we could have stayed longer.…
Hotel Chimayo is a quaint hotel very close to the plaza. It is an excellent location for shopping around the plaza. Our room was very nice and clean with a seating area and fireplace. Our king size bed was very comfortable.
Great location. Let us park out front so convenient to Square and restaurants. Cozy rooms. A bit worn but charming. Staff great and very accommodating. Courtyard is on other side of the lobby with access to rooms. Pretty quiet with fireplaces and tub.
I paid for two rooms in advance. Hotel UNILATERALLY charged me $200 ADDITIONAL using the excuse "RESORT FEE." I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past and expected to pay for parking on ONE CAR as usual. A RESORT FEE may something you can legally add to my credit card but it is DEFFINITELY NOT ETHICAL. I won't be back.
The rooms were very comfortable and so was the bed. The fireplace was available but we did not have time to enjoy it. We were fortunate to have access to our room by elevator. The parking garage was spacious but was limited. This hotel was walking distance to our favorite areas and the plaza.
We used to live in Santa Fe, so we travel back often to visit friends. This was our first time staying at Hotel Chimayo, but it won’t be our last. The staff could NOT have been nicer, the rooms are SO cute and clean, and we loved the bartender at their Low and Slow Bar. It’s in the best location possible - in walking distance to all the great places. This was our first time staying here, but it will NOT be our last!
We booked this hotel for my husband’s birthday and the hotel staff, especially Rhiannon and Orlando, made it so very special for us. Nothing was too much trouble, the lowrider experience was fantastic, Orlando went the extra mile to make our experience so special. Rhiannon, organised the car trip and arranged a lovely treat for us in our room. The hotel is perfectly placed to visit all the main sites and has a wonderful car themed bar. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for your stay in Sante Fe
This hotel is perfect in so many ways. The hotel staff have been extremely accommodating, the rooms are clean and beautiful. The walk way entrance to your room is magical. I will mention that there are stairs upon entry to room so be sure you find a room that doesn't have that to accommodate any handicap. This hotel is located in the middle of the downtown plaza. Walking distance can be to just about everything you need. I would highly recommend staying at Hotel Chimayo! We can't wait to come back!
