We were greeted warmly when we arrived. We had a late dinner in the casino area. Every interaction with hotel personnel was handled very professionally. The coffee at breakfast was much better than what we had in Nevada. All meals were extremely well prepared. Checkout was quick and painless.

Hilton Buffalo Thunder is my favorite place stay. That is a huge statement from someone who has traveled extensively my whole life. The staff is magnificinet. Jonathan usually greets us by name and with a big hug. He makes sure our luggage gets to our room. Most of the time, the check-in staff also greets me by name. They welcome...

We saved nearly $150 a night to by staying at the Gorgeous Buffalo Thunder Resort. We stayed 4 nights and that really adde up. It paid for all the excellent meals we ate while in the area. BT is 15 minutes from the Plaza but the drive is a choice of either the speedy freeway or the ultra scenic Tesuque/Bishop's...

This hotel is perfectly located between Santa Fe (Shops and Galleries), Ghost Ranch (Horse Back Riding)and Abiquiu (Georgia O'Keeffe's Home). These three areas area's are so poplar. Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder offers a beautiful swimming pool with hot spa. When you walk in you are given such a wonderful friendly welcome from the door man to the front desk....

We stayed here for 3 nights and I can't say anything negative. The hotel is beautiful. Our room was so pretty we took pictures. The hotel is immaculate, the staff is friendly and helpful. We ate in one of the restaurants and had room service one morning. The food was well presented and tasty. I would recommend this hotel to...

Lovely hotel about 30 minutes from Santa Fe. We stopped for breakfast at the cafe, I'll give it a mediocre rating. Nice casino, friendly staff. If you're looking to be away from the city this is it. Easy to get to.

Nice place, kind of too far away from town. Went there on a Monday, the buffet was closed. Very quiet, rooms are nice only thing we noticed is they need to do maintenance around the pool area. Would stay there again.

We had a great time at this Hotel. It offers a large casino with golf, spa and pools. Views on the pool side are beautiful the parking side are OK if you look past parking and highway. Staff was polite and helpful. Food and drinks are very good. Nice get-a-way location. 15 minutes into town but easy traffic free commute....

While this is a fairly large resort/spa hotel connected to a casino, our weekend was restful and regenerative. We stay in Hilton properties from all over the world and this one is one of the nicer ones. The only reason it doesn't get a full "five" rating is that the common space housekeeping was a bit lax. Our room housekeeping...

My wife and I visited New Mexico for vacation recently and spent time in both Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Upon leaving Santa Fe for Albuquerque we stopped in the Buffalo Thunder Casino & resort to play some roulette and relax. The casino/resort looks like a typical native style pueblo from the outside. Its design and architecture is really beautiful. Inside...
