So, we were really looking forward to our stay for our postponed anniversary which I mentioned when speaking to a reservation's agent directly w/hotel. This was not to be. On arrival, we asked about restaurant options and the desk clerk said, "there are 150 eateries to choose from" but could not make any recommendations. Then came the room---like another reviewer...

Inn of the Governors is an excellent choice in Santa Fe for several reasons. Location is great - you can walk to the plaza which is a lovely open plaza surrounded on four sides with Santa Fe shops. It is very charming and you can spend a couple of days cruising the shops. Rooms at Inn of the Governors are... More

We come here every year normally for 3 or 4 nights. Last spring it was a week. We only stayed a night this trip because of no vacancies on the dates we needed. These folks have it all together. The rooms are spotless. The staff is always excellent. The breakfast is to die for. The manager always gives us a... More

Older hotel with a good vibe. Mostly older clientele but fun place. The bar is really a good spot. Had three meals there during our stay and all were good. Would go back. About a 5 minute walk to the Plaza but we walked much more than that. Everything within walking distance.

This place is in a great location to everything including the plaza. We walked everywhere! The included breakfast was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful (especially Charlene). The pool area was great as was the attached restaurant and saloon. Quiet at night. The rooms need some updating/refreshing as it is looking a bit worn.

The hotel is steps to the Plaza in old Downtown. Charming hotel with a boutique feel. The breakfast provided was very good. The amenities were nice....pool and seating areas around the pool...fountains and fireplace in the pool area. The Del Charro restaurant in the hotel has good food and a nice covered patio with fireplace to enjoy. There is also... More

Great location with walk to Plaza. Well appointed room and helpful staff. Afternoon Sherry a nice treat and sofa area near fireplace pleasant. Breakfast adequate but staff needs to monitor supplies. We observed no bowls, fruit bowl empty. Staff needed to be asked to replenish...there should be ongoing replenishment of food items.

This was a family trip that my daughter, her husband and baby had planned for months. We were lucky to be invited along as we always feel at home at the Inn of the Governors. The staff was wonderful to work with and our special room requests were met with a big yes, we have those rooms for you. No... More

Inn of the Governors is an older hotel steps from the Square in Santa Fe. Each room is decorated in NM style, and impeccibly clean. Sherry and High Tea is offered each afternoon and is popular with guests who sip and enjoy the beautiful ambiance, comfy couch and chairs, and fireplace. Parking in that area is a problem, however if... More

My wife and I have been vacationing in New Mexico since the 1970's and have always stayed at the La Fonda in Santa Fe. We decided to try something new (and less expensive) this year and stayed at the Inn of the Governors instead. What a fantastic surprise. The location is ideal, just outside the bustle of the square, but... More
