As platinum members, we often seek out Marriott properties when we travel, and did so in Taos. We had never stayed at what is called an "autograph" collection hotel until now. This Kessler owned property has partnered with Marriott and therefore feels more like a quaint boutique hotel. The setting was outstanding and just enough removed from the hustle and bustle of the center of town which we easily walked to to avoid parking issues. The hotel runs a shuttle service whenever you want, should you decide to ride. The architecture is stunning with wonderful details everywhere you look. The rooms were most comfortable and attractive done in a southwestern chic style and the bathroom had one of the best showers we've ever
used! The staff couldn't have been nicer to us right from the start including the lovely Brittany who was incredibly helpful at check-in assisting us in finding just the right room and location. We were offered a suite, however, after going on a property tour, we chose a king bedded room that was bright and airy and over 500 square feet. It was quiet, peaceful and faced the inner courtyard of the hotel with a view of the mountains from our patio. While we only had breakfast here, we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the atrium dining room in the morning where, again, the staff couldn't have been more welcoming. The valet Nick not only drove us into town, but also ended up giving us a dinner recommendation for town that ended up being our favorite meal(Antonio's). While we never made it to the spa, we would have liked to as it looked to be amazing, as did the lovely indoor pool and hot tub. The gym was great, stocked with a good selection of equipment overlooking a beautiful setting.This place is a true gem and looked to us to be the absolute best place to stay in all of Taos. We highly recommend this property for a wonderful vacation experience.
