We were just planning to spend one night in Santa Fe, but after our great experience the first night at Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe -- with a fireplace even -- we ended up staying a second night. Also, critical to what felt like a magical experience was Jay at the front desk. He was phenomenally considerate about our every... More

My mom and I stayed at Hotel Chimayo and it was exactly what we had been wanting. It is right by the old town and everything we wanted to see was within walking distance.

Thank you for the 5-Star review DesertWanderer29! It sounds like our staff and hotel met your expectations and we couldn't be more pleased. Our parking garage being onsite and underground does help during these winter months when snow doesn't have to be removed from your car. Our courtyard does seem magical during this time of year, and I hope you... More

The Hotel Chimayo Front Desk and Housekeeping service was fantastic and very professional! The staff is very cordial and outgoing, and the location is unbeatable! The room was cozy, quiet and offered a comfortable bed which enhanced a great nights sleep! Lots of bang for the buck!

Hotel Chimayo is a wonderful, warm and charming boutique hotel. The staff is exceptional-the value for the price is outstanding! I usually travel with my discerning pug and she gave the hotel a 4 paws rating-curling up in front of our suite's fireplace was a real pooch pleaser. Attention to detail-historic charm and lots of complimentary add-ons. Nick, the Operations... More

Stayed here for many years throughout the many name changes the hotel has had. Many updates have been made to the rooms and the lobby. The staff is already friendly and helpful. Can't beat the rates! However stayed in an older room this time that needed updating and hopefully done soon. Bathrooms are so small and decor lacking small touches.... More

Hotel chimayo is a small but stylish hotel within 1/2 block of Santa Fe's plaza. The rooms are well furnished and have been recently updated. Some have wood burning fireplaces and most have balconies. The staff are very friendly and of course you are within walking distance of some of Santa Fe's best restaurants.

I got a deal from SniqueAway deals since we were going to be in Santa Fe. What a beautiful King room we had with a fireplace. And what a great location! just a block from the Plaza with plenty of shopping and the indians selling their jewelry on the sidewalks. Another plus was FREE PARKING!!

This little hotel is so lovely. The location is great, the staff friendly, the bedrooms clean and pretty. The price is very reasonable. I have only one suggestion for the staff/hotel owner: Give better instructions, or make little maps that show guests where to park. Careless instructions almost turned a delightful 1.5 day weekend trip into a bad experience. Here's... More
