We stayed at the Hampton Inn for two nights. Check-in was easy and fast. The King room (228) was comfortable and roomy, with a good size bath. Mattress was firm, but very comfortable. When we got in, we found on the bed a padded lap-board with a note signed by our housekeeper, welcoming us and inviting us to let her know if we needed anything. Nice touch and the first time I've seen a lap board in any hotel. Also on the headboard was a sticky noting the sheets and duvet were washed prior to our arrival. Now granted, I assume the sheets are clean, but it's nice to know the duvet is also freshly laundered.
The included breakfast buffet was extensive and tasty, with fruits, baked goods, yogurt, cereals, oatmeal, an egg dish, sausage, a waffle machine, juices, coffee, etc. Trays were available to take to your room.
The only issue we had with our room was the bathroom door was hanging slightly crooked and scraped the floor when about 2/3 open. The first morning, on our way out, I mentioned this to the front desk clerk. He asked if I wanted maintenance to look at it while we were out, and I told him to go ahead if they wanted, but that it was no big deal. When we returned to the room late that afternoon, we found a note from the maintenance supervisor apologizing that they would not be able to fix the door without removing it from our room for the rest of our stay. Along with the note was a gift basket with bottled water and snacks. Totally unnecessary, but a really nice surprise.
Also, the first night, I didn't sleep too well, despite the very comfortable mattress. I'm not a duvet guy, as I find them too bulky and hot. In the closet was a regular blanket in a zippered plastic case. Our first morning, I left the case on the bed with a note to the housekeeper to please put the blanket on the bed under the duvet, and when we returned it was made up just as I requested. Seems like a small thing, but I have often found other hotels somehow unable to comply with equally simple requests.
If you are looking to stay in Taos, and want a hotel that provides all the basics, and top-notch service to boot, you should give the Hampton Inn a try. I wouldn't hesitate to re-book.
