This is a couple blocks off the main drag, but close enough to be very convenient. Quiet neighborhood. Parking is ridiculous though - $20 per night parking charge (they do have valet but we didn't utilize that.) However, our building was super convenient to parking lot and we had no complaints in that regard. We ate up near plaza and not at the hotel, so can't comment on dining. The pool is inside and rather small. Didn't use spa either. We were there 2 nights only and were out and about our one full day in Taos (hiking, site seeing).
You have to pay for Wifi - can't remember exact charge but I think it was in the $10 range for 24 hours.
But we loved our room. Huge tub between bathroom and main room. Large deck. Huge walk in shower with European glass door. The room had that combination Southwest/Rocky Mountain style (psuedo cowhide covered closet doors, antlers over mirror, etc.) but I've grown to love this style of decor since I'm from Colorado. The bed was comfy and we slept well since the building was so quiet.
Only a couple weird things. Bathroom has curtains separating tub from room and a curtain to separate bathroom entrance from main room.
Also, our neighbors smoked on the deck. This was very annoying and kept me from enjoying our deck in the evening. :(
