My husband and I just returned from a four day stay at Santa Fe where this Inn was our home base. From the very beginning when I checked in , I was greeted by Kevin who had so much information about the happenings around town. Then Charlene greeted us and showed us a space in the parking lot as well... More

My wife and I traveled to Santa Fe (first time in New Mexico) from the northeast, and chose Inn of the Governors for a three-night stay. This hotel turned out to be one of the best lodging choices we had ever made. In addition to the location (within walking distance to Canyon Road, the Railyard and very good restaurants), the...

Spent two nights in this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is a very easy walk to the Plaza. The staff was excellent. They provide complimentary tea and sherry every afternoon from 4 to 5. Excellent complimentary breakfast. No elevator so if you have difficulty with stairs ask for a first floor room. We stayed in a king... More

Would return in a heartbeat. This inn had everything we were looking for -- excellent location with easy access to town and Canyon Road, a lovely breakfast, comfortable and roomy accommodations (Deluxe King room) and a delicious pool with poolside dining which we enjoyed after a hot day.

This hotel is very authentic southwestern. The rooms are furnished beautifully with many amenities. Great location just a few blocks from the plaza. Flower boxes with overflowing arrangements and hanging from balconies are beautiful. Very nice pool too. We would like to stay here again. Recommend highly!!!

A charming older hotel that offers a comfortable stay for a weekend stay in Santa Fe. The location is great and most everything is in walking distance. Free parking is an added bonus. The breakfast buffet is a nice touch if you just need something to get you started, but it's not anything I'd want to spend extra money on.... More

Hotel is older, but very clean and easy walk to downtown plaza area. Our deluxe king room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast buffet in attached restaurant was very good. We didn't use the pool, but enjoyed the 4pm complimentary sherry. Free parking was nice.

First time for our family in Santa Fe, and the Inn of the Governors made it very convenient. We were walking distance from everything we wanted to see, including the Loretto Chapel. I also think it's worth mentioning Charlene - she was terrific!
