Casas de Suenos used to be an artists’ colony and you can definitely tell from the incredible entrance to the unique features and individual cottage atmosphere. We stayed in the Pinon Suite for two nights with a friend. Suite is a misnomer; it was a stand alone little house complete with full kitchen, dining room, living room, 2bed and bath. The accommodations were great – nice leather couch and good TV with cable, comfortable bed, Mexican tiled bathroom. Maid service came and replenished towels and made the beds. The only problem for us was a freaky picture in the second bedroom that other people have referred to. It’s a kid painted in traditional costume eating a watermelon but the juice running down his chin and chest is blood red. My friend took that picture off the wall during our stay. So really this is pretty nice – a house in essence that is all yours down to the little driveway and front and backyard. Of course they have other suites that aren’t two bedroom for smaller parties I believe.
For breakfast they have either pancakes or French toast (chef’s choice), eggs and bacon made to order, with fruit, tea, cereal, coffee, and yogurt. We didn’t have to wait for a table for breakfast the first morning, and the second morning we were there we did wait about 10 minutes. There had been a wedding and reception in the courtyard the day before (the wedding party was somehow related to or knew the owner was the impression we got), so many of the family were eating breakfast there that morning.
Check in was a breeze even though we got there around 9 pm. There is a computer at the front desk you can use with free Internet and a printer; newspapers in the breakfast room. The location is excellent and within walking distance to Old Town. We kept driving down Rio Grande Blvd (past the highway) to check out a winery in that direction (Casa Rondena). The staff were helpful in suggesting places to go and eat (Mac’s La Sierra was a TRUE New Mexican joint and not for everyone but we’re glad we found it thanks to the staff).
