I've been going to Santa Fe for 40 years and stayed in MANY hotels. This hotel is still my favorite for many reasons. It is well kept, centrally located, wonderful atmosphere. Please note, this is a historic property so it has its quirks but those small things do not take away its specialness. There is a resort fee for historic buildings so if you are aware of that going in, it won't surprise you. My favorite part is that I often travel solo and as a single woman, I can walk 50' to the restaurant and fabulous piano bar. Great place every time.

It looks like many others were unhappy. I wasn't going to write a review but I got an email encouraging that I do and the photo that came with it had the fireplace that was disappointing so, here goes. The rate here was kinda good as its downtown. When we checked in they added 60 for what they said was parking and Wi-Fi. That was surprising. We were told we couldn't use the restaurant as it was a private event and would have to pay to enter for drinks or food. The room was on the second floor up stairs. We had a fireplace that just had candles in it. still romantic right? Except the candles were missing, just holders. I asked for candles, they didn't have any. Parking spots were very limited. The place wasn't as romantic and inspiring as we had hoped, it felt more like we were being squeezed for money and sent on our way. We should have chose better.

from the rude and aloof (or clueless) person at the front desk to the fairly shabby room- there are better places to stay in Santa Fe for higher quality and less money. don't get it- realize that hotels are struggling- it costs nothing to he pleasant and treat guests cheerfully and to have a basic knowledge of the job. Our room smelled terrible, the mini fridge did mot not work, our room looked over the parking lot. not normally a complainer - this place a big disappointment. housekeeping knocked on our door at 9am to ask when we were checking out..checkout is at 11am. this place has no idea how to treat guests.

The pictures on Tripadvisor were very misleading. It seems like it probably was nice at one time but it has gone downhill. It didn't seem as clean as it should be; the housekeeper came in twice without knocking (really scary). The towels were frayed. The linens were NOT frette. The Gilchrist and Soames bath amenities seemed old...they didn't have any scent and weren't sealed. Everything just seemed outdated. The only bright spot was the gentleman that takes care of the property. He helped us with the television, was so kind and helpful. I would disagree that the location is two blocks from the plaza. It's definitely not walkable. And there is very little parking. We were lucky it didn't seem to be busy. We tried to check out but no one was there to do it. I won't be back and can't recommend. It says they have robes but there weren't any....very few amenities. No breakfast (even though you paid a resort fee to get it)_ No ice. No nothing.

We arrived to the hotel very late in the evening and were provided a room that was much smaller than I had booked. I was unhappy and cranky. Thank goodness for the GM Alvin who patiently listened to my complaints, reviewed my reservation documents and worked to accommodate moving us to a much larger room. We had a great 4 days there with plenty of room to work from the hotel. A large oversized deck as well. Much appreciated.
