Unique and memorable. Beautiful quiet property rich in architectural detail and designed with appeal, three blocks walking distance from the center of pedestrian Taos. Newer rooms are Southwest boutique design with gas fireplaces, jacuzzi tubs, leather hide trimmed armoires, timber viga beams, luxurious beds. "Global" rooms are larger, truly deluxe mini suites each with unique international themes ( India, China etc) and could be worth the surcharge for a honeymoon. Hotel is part of the Kessler 'Signature' boutique chain and now affiliated with Marriott. Grounds are beautiful, green, and quiet. Beautiful pool and jacuzzi in a lushly landscaped, tented greenhouse that is like a desert oasis. Architecture and grounds are a labor of love with beautifully detailed wrought iron, stone and tile, vigas and cottonwoods. Management and staff are excellent : friendly, welcoming, attentive and efficient. We enjoyed it so much we rearranged our itinerary so as to swing back for two additional nights and hated to leave. Thank you's to Stephen and Susan in reception/management, Dolores the maitre'd of the sunny and pleasant restaurant. Lovely onsite gift shop/art gallery run by a charming and knowledgable lady just relocated from another Kessler property on the East Coast. I highly recommend the Sagrado and can't imagine now staying anywhere else in Taos. One more Taos tip: don't miss Michael's Restaurant a short walk from the hotel, great food at very affordable prices, if I were a local I'd be a regular there. Do be aware that a daily valet parking charge will be added even if you self-park in their large lot and don't use the valet service. Two very enjoyable stays. Warmly recommended.
